Hey, we are not the Dems, they virtually all have one position that will disqualify a candidate. Three guesses what that issue is?

I voted In Favor of Gay Marriage , If I had another choice it would abortion..
I would like to see a path to citizen for illegals.. (with clean records)
Its just impossible to deport 15 Million+ people. Its not realistic. And if a candidate runs on that they will lose..

Don't build a fence...build a wall and don't let anymore in without going through the process.

I can't vote because you only allowed for one answer. Can you go back and edit it to allow multiple answers? Thanks

I'm a Dem and have no idea what you are talking about. Perhaps your stereotyping and generalizing of us is what makes the GOP so unpopular.

I dont know how to edit it.

I also wanted this poll to be a singular defining issue(select 1). Most republicans would select multiple options, which is why I specifically chose those 5 issues.

The basis of this poll is to kind of test the gauge reflux of republicans and see which of these they would not accept under any circumstance whatsoever.

You may feel all 5 of those make you feel the same way, but everybody has one thing that stands out even if they are all impossible, the one that is impossible beyond impossible for you to ever support.

I believe that you can go back and edit a poll to allow more than one choice, not sure how to do it without looking at it though. Regarding a single choice, that doesn't make sense and you yourself stated why; most of us would choose more than one. I will not compromise my values.

The last three choices would really make me seriously question a candidate. I chose expanding government. 2nd Amendment rights are important, but expanding gun control falls under expanding government. And really the only reason I'm against amnesty is because we have a welfare state. I have nothing against immigrants coming here to make a better life for themselves although I obviously prefer they do it legally. It's the fact that we simply cannot afford to give out free healthcare, schooling, and other social services to illegals. If we massively scaled back the social services and entitlement systems in our country, then I would consider looking at some kind of amnesty. As of now though, illegals simply suck up way too many public dollars and bankrupt our states.

I really don't care what a candidates position is on abortion and gays. That's irrelevant to me and sidetracks the discussion from important issue.
