Trump endorsed Democrats like Bill Clinton and even Hillary Clinton in previous presidential elections.

Trump has often said that he thinks the economy does better when Democrats are in office.

He tends to give more money to Democrat candidates.

I think he's more "center" than most people acknowledge. If not a tad bit left.

You mean radical center?

I consider myself center left and I agree we are usually ignored - anyone in the center actually.

Trump is a rogue Democrat. He is a Liberal in Conservative clothing. He needed Pence to appear as a conservative pick.

Trump/Pence is a Liberal/Conservative ticket. It is the center.

I agree. Too many extremists on both sides get the attention.

Nobody will know what Trump really is unless he is elected.

Personally, I don't like the idea of voting blind. Combine that with my personal dislike of him, and you'll know my main reasons for not supporting him.

I'm not a partisan "I vote for letter" like most Hillary voters. It's amazing how badly they'll sell out for the letter D.

Actually, I am settling for Hillary, primarily due to economic concerns of a Trump presidency and I am pro-choice and due to SCOTUS nominations upcoming, I would prefer she pick the nominees for SCOTUS judges.

But on the state level, I'll be voting for a few Republicans. I pick between the candidates and I always vote. I also live in Ohio, a swing state so I do feel my vote is important in presidential elections and I just don't feel comfortable with even thinking of Trump being the president, even though I do think that if elected he'll tone himself down. It is too late for me though to even consider supporting him.

As a center left person, I also do not like the hard left, which is in line with Jill Stein. I believe that libertarians are extremist and that libertarianism is the exact opposite of communism (good on paper, not reality, I also feel libertarians are naive about human nature) and so I will not vote for Gary Johnson. So the only person left who is not a total nutcase and who I actually value her "Wall Street connections" is Hillary Clinton. I think the economy won't tank under her watch and it may (and probably will) under Trump's watch.

So you plan to overlook her lying to the American people about matters of national security, committing national security crimes and committing perjury in a congressional hearing (not to mention other serious issues)?

Sorry if I don't believe you are doing anything other than voting for the letter D for POTUS.
