What To Do? What To Do?

One of our solid Republicans has decided to cross over and vote against Cynthia McKinney. He wants your advice, dear readers.

Should he only vote in that race, or should he vote in the other races too? And if so, who should he vote for?


  1. Chris says:

    Best bet is to force as many as possible into a run-off to drain their funds.

    So based on that logic, vote or the underest underdog.

  2. duluthmom says:

    He should vote for Martin for lt. governor IMO.
    Hecht’s smear campaign is awful and the charges that a poster made here about Martin’s rape Bill are obviously false.

    Haven’t checked out much of the other Dem races since I’m voting Republican.

  3. GabrielSterling says:

    To be on the safe side, as he is a good Republican, he should vote for Ms. Angela for Secretary of State or…you know…he might die, so why risk it.

  4. ConcernedTeenager says:

    Flip a coin for each race- if you have the time, that is

    The way these campaigns have been going with all the negativity, you’re better off that way!

    Though I must say Hecht’s mailout was insanely wrong…

    If you don’t believe your vote is important to the GOP, go back and read every post from GOPeach. Forget McKinney, please!

    Here is my advice: Tell him he is an idiot and his efforts are futile. This is stupid and rediculous! His cross-over vote won’t do anything except take away another vote in our own Primary (if he was planning to vote for Reed, then I retract everything … let him go).

    Here’s the thing … every season there are a group of people saying that there are going to be Primary cross-over voters. Usually, about 15 people actually do that, and rarely do they affect even 0.000000001% of the final vote. So, essentially what they are doing is THROWING THEIR VOTE AWAY!!!!!

    Get real. Let DeKalb have Cynthia. She already makes our state look like a bunch of backwards idiots. What we should focus our strength on is making sure that we don’t elect Reed as Lt Gov, which will only further that sentiment nationwide!!!!!

    I agree with others who downplay the effectiveness of “crossover” voting… Cynthia McKinney’s not going anywhere. Still, I’m a guy who likes to vote third-party and independent… so my view of a “wasted vote” is where one settles for something he doesn’t believe in rather than just voting their beliefs.

    Forget the party labels for a moment. If you as a conservative take a greater interest in McKinney losing than you do in which down-ticket candidates win on the GOP side, then by all means follow your principles and vote in the Democratic primary. However, I don’t believe in Machiavellian tactics like voting for the weakest candidate in all the other races. Just vote for the closest thing you can find to your own beliefs and values in each race.

    Jockeying and shuffling chess pieces is a job for the candidates and consultants. The job of a voter is to vote his or her concience and let things fall where they may.
