Don't think I could possibly pick anyone dumber than the circus they have to choose from. Also don't think anyone in that bunch would survive the first debate against Trump.

I would go with AOC if it was possible, but she ain't old enough.

Well I sorta do that up here in Oklahoma. My folks and me are all conservative but registered as Democrat's. The only reason we do that is because in a lot of the small elections around here there might not be anyone running as a Republican, Libertarian or Independent so the only two people running might both be Democrat's and the only election for that office would be the primary election then. So then we basically have to wait till the big election to vote for who we want in the bigger elections. It was a pleasure to vote against Hillary twice during the last Presidential election. lol

Ive voted in way more dem primary races than the counter over the years...you basically have no choice with local elections in the mix where I live anyway. Basically boils down to nixing the aoc village idiot & can be a head scratcher at times deciding whos the worst smelling 💩

Biden has the best chance to win against Trump, we just need for the other d's running to knock him out of the race early. If not then he needs to be voted out in the primaries.

I remember liberal friends of mine in Austin doing the very same thing in the 2016 election. The all voted for Trump thinking he would be the easiest to beat, lol. I remind them of that little mistake every chance I get.

I was thinking about this awhile back and that if I did, it would be to vote for the most moderate Democratic candidate. That candidate would actually have the best chance of beating Trump.

I want Trump to win, but I'm not so confident he will and if we were to end up with a Dem prez, I would rather it be their most reasonable candidate. Not the one most whacked out.

This surprised me. Albeit, pleasantly surprised.

If you are registered as a republican I do not believe you should be able to vote in the Democratic primary and vice versa.

You choose which party candidates you wish to vote for in the primaries. Cannot vote for R and D candidates both in primaries.
General election- can vote for whoever.

I Agree.

But next year, Trump wont have an opponent in the Primaries.

Should Trump Supporters vote For he Craziest Dem in the Primaries?

Someone he can Beat? Then vote Trump in the General?

IMO, the craziest Dem candidate will be the most left leaning. That makes this a risky proposition if that candidate were to actually become President.

Some may scoff at this possibility but Dems have overwhelming advantage with combination of technology / social media giants (Google, Facebook, Twitter). They also have huge news and entertainment media advantage - from MSM and cable news to the psuedo-media (Colbert, Kimmel, The View, Ellen, Oprah, John Oliver, Trevor Noah, and others). Throw in hordes of energized new voters being turned out by liberal universities.

Finally, factor in a president doing little to expand his base of support who on any given day is prone to say or do something that will stun all but his most ardent supporters. This won't be an easy election regardless the candidates.

I want the most moderate Democratic candidate to win their nomination. Just in case.

And what will the "increase in dem votes in primary" headline have on general turnout for repubs?
