I'm voting against the incumbent in every race.
This. And Johnson for Prez...
You could also agree with one candidate on some issues, and the other on other issues, and be undecided which ones should take priority. My wife is a social liberal and fiscal conservative, but not radical enough to vote for Johnson. She hasn't decided whether her love for gay people is enough to outweigh her hatred of government expansion.
I know some people who use the debates as important factors in how they ultimately decide. They feel that you get more 'real' answers and insight to the candidates in that forum. I don't know if I believe that or not, but last week's performance certainly helped mittens, so there's probably more people out there who see them as important than you think.
On principle this!
Clinton cannot run again!
Somebody please tell me about the Libertarian Party and Gary Johnson.
Johnson is the former governor of New Mexico. He's to the left of Obama on issues like gay marriage and personal privacy. He's to the right of Romney when it comes to cutting spending and taxes. Wants to get out of foreign entanglements and end the war on drugs.
Done and done.

He is not to the left of Obama on anything. Libertarian views of gay marriage are well liberty based. It is a Constitutional issue of equal protection for us, and we are of the opinion this is none of the government's business. Obama's position is not so soundly constructed, as in my opinion, he could care less about the Constitution, as it gets in his way, so he ignores it!
Same goes for Johnson's view of war. A view of the words of the Constitution would not have allowed us to invade Iraq.
Libertarians believe that too much goverenment is a bane on society as what a large and powerful government does is in most cases is predicated on the whims of the asswipes that get elected to POTUS and Congress.
Well i am sold. Why isn't he getting more press?
Undecided for me means I am pretty leery of either candidate right now, and not convinced that either candidate will actually go through with any meaningful debt reduction. I think Obama is willing to promise the world and deliver maybe Rhode Island. I'm happy with some of the social issues Obama has pushed or at least been pushed on ("evolving" on gay marriage; DADT), also nice that he got OBL. But but some of his foreign policy/terrorism moves have me scratching my head (uber-reliance on drone strikes, Gitmo hasn't been closed). I think Romney might be more effective in getting things done in wheeling and dealing, but I worry about some of the positions he has adopted as the current Republican standard bearer. Probably offers less specifics than Obama did 4 years ago.
I feel like Obama will say something ridiculous but he really believes it. I feel like Romney will say something ridiculous in order to get more people to support him. I don't like the idea of either one being ridiculous because it's kind of an important job. Not excited about the prospect of voting for either one. That's probably a win for the Romney camp since I voted for O in 2008.

If my vote mattered I'd hold my nose and vote for Obama but since it doesn't I'm voting for Johnson or Mike Leach.
The clue is in this "... I think Romney might be more effective in getting things done..."
Romney has had four years working with a majority democrat legislature and was able to make some positive things happen by concessions and consideration and fostering mutual respect, along the line of the relationship Reagan had with Tip O'Neall. This President long since burned his bridge, and will never get anything done, even if the Dem leaders work out a deal, he will not agree to it. Had Romney had a poor relationship wouldn't members of that Mass Legislature have been in Obama ads by now?
Co-sign on both parts of this sentence.
Johnson, just because he wants to end the fruitless war on drugs and save the country billions of dollars and probably bring about an environment conducive to Mexico being a safe place to live again, thus saving the country more when less people illegally enter the country and use free healthcare and other government subsidies. If either major party candidate took this stance I'd probably swing to them however, they are both turds and part of the system which is corrupt and run by special interest groups.

Hey, I have an idea! Start this thread with a poll!
I'm voting for Johnson as well. It's a shame he was shut out of the debates.
Johnson or writing in Ron Paul. Won't vote for Obamney.
Well, it looks like Johnson is going to win in a landslide
You jumping on the Johnson train, T-Diddy?
I'd love for Johnson to get some crazy numbers in November.
