    Conservatives: Would You Ever Vote For A Democrat?

    Consider that this candidate was a mainstream social liberal (approves of abortion, gay marriage etc.), but this person could get the unemployment rate down to 4 percent and fix social security. Would that be enough for you?

    NO.  No Democrat would ever support policies that would result in any thing so fantastic as fixing Social Security.  He may campaign on it, after all Bill Clinton and Barrack Obama promised lots of things they didn't deliver that would resonate with some Republican voters.  No isn't enough of an answer.  I would prefer HELL NO!

      So, I'll take that as a no?

    Just focusing on the financial condition isn't enough.  It's been my experience in watching people.....that someone who's for immoral laws is probably also not responsible in the other issues either.

      But isn't that what conservatives say is the biggest issue? If only people had jobs, they wouldn't care about the social issue?

    No, in the scenario you put forth it would not sway my vote.  I would gladly close my eyes to party affiliation if the issues they stand for (or against) align with mine.

    Interesting replies everybody. I only ask because Bill Clinton had huge popularity numbers despite his "scandal" because the economy was doing so well.

    I don't think anyone is getting unemployment down to 4 percent.  The unreported percent is about 20%.  We've lost a lot of jobs to automation that aren't coming back.

    Will I vote democratic?  It's unlikely since democrats want the government to take care of you and republicans want you to take care of yourself.  We can't afford the amount we spend in the public sector.  We spend too much on both republican funded wants like the military, and democratic wants such as more community public service programs.

    Both sides are basically bought by their supporters and then owed once they are elected.  I'm not encouraged with the system and the way it's been going.

    This hypothetical is not a question based in very much reality. As I have seen it, if someone does not value life, then they are usually not likely to support a smaller government and personal responsibility.
    But, even if there were such a person, I would not vote for someone who was for the killing of the unborn and wanted the government to control our lives in ever increasing ways.
    Finally, you are comparing Conservatives to Democrats, when the comparison should be between Conservatives and, not all (or even most) Republican on the national stage are true Conservatives.

    Playing along with your hypothetical, yes, I would absolutely vote for a Democrat if he/she were qualified.

    However, your analogy is off. A better question would be "Would you ever vote for a liberal", as I know plenty of moderate, and even conservative Democrats.
