The Ticket Splitter Scourge

Share With Friends

Why does Bob Casey have a 12 point lead over Tom Smith and Barack Obama only has a 6 point lead over Mitt Romney? Idiots, that’s why!

Look people, you’re overthinking this. Despite there being a bunch of names on the ballot, there are only two choices. The Democrats or the Republicans. Make the choice, and then vote for all that party’s candidates. Voting for one party’s Presidential candidate and then cancelling that vote out by choosing a different party’s Senate or House candidate makes zero sense!

Decide which party you think is more right, and then vote a straight ticket.

    What an arrogant and misinformed post Jon! Do you really think there is no difference between a Representative like Tim Holden in Schuylkill County and Representative Pelosi? The point is, Independents vote for the candidate they believe best represents their values . . . . and talk to a few before you label them all as “idiots!” Most independents disdain politics (partially because people like you are out there calling them idiots if they don’t agree with you) and are too busy putting bread on the table for their families to worry about ideological constituencies. And their views are diverse and they don’t fall into one of our neatly defined Party categories . . . . but that doesn’t make them “idiots!” Shame on you for such an accusation! Try getting a friend or two who doesn’t share your world view.

    Ticket splitters are idiots because they dont understand that the House is all about parties, and the Senate increasingly is too. The choice on the House ballot is Nancy Pelosi or John Boehner. Democratic House or Tea Party House. Who do you want to have the majority? Unless one of the choices happens to be an icon on a particular issue you care about, there really is no reason for anything other than party preference to enter into your decision in a general election.
