2008 I voted for Bob Barr. He's the only guy I really regret voting for out of all candidates I have voted for, not just presidential candidates. 2012 and 2016 I voted for Gary Johnson.

I was a registered Libertarian until 2015 and now am an independent. I'm moved pretty far to the center the last few years and am considering joining the GOP as a moderate. I'm not liberal, but I'm tired of the social conservativism and extreme nationalism in this country. I've also come to accept universal healthcare after the disasters the Democrats and Republicans have given us.

I've mostly voted for Republicans and Libertarians, and a small handful of Democrats. I always hoped the Libertarians could move to the center with Johnson and become more viable, but I don't see that as a realistic plan anymore.

I have voted in Three elections 2008, 2012 and 2016 I voted for Obama twice in 2008 and 2012 ,and Hillary in 2016.

So for me that's 2 wins and 1 loss.
First election for me was 04 (the 00 election was 6 weeks before my 18th birthday). Only wins I had were both Obama terms. Kerry and Clinton were both losses

I turned 18 in 2005 so 2008 was my first one and sat that one out. I didn't believe in any of the Obama hype, and John McCain was a really weak choice for that year. I was in CA.

2012 I probably would have voted for Romney, but living in NJ at the time we got slammed by Hurricane Sandy so our state was in disaster mode around the time of the election. I liked Romney better than McCain but it wasn't enough to get me out of the house.

2016 I was in CO and voted for Trump. I couldn't sign on with the devil and won that one ;-)

2016 was a coin-toss (oops almost typed "con-tossed,") Freudian I guess, election.
