Question Who will not vote for Trump in November

Who will definitely not vote for Trump for president if he is the Republican candidate?

I voted in the primary so I've already done all I can do as for as picking a candidate. So now I'll set back and watch and as this debacle plays out.

Since the Texas primary is over it amasses me how much some people continue debate the pros and cons of each candidate. Is there something else we can do to change the chosen candidate that I'm missing?

I'm just curious as to who will actually not vote Republican if Trump wins the nomination.

Are you wanting to know if we will vote for a Republican or Trumph?

If he is the nominee....then yes, I will vote for him and hope that there's that 1% chance he will truly do what he preaches.

In my mind, abstaining from voting for him is nearly the same as a vote for the other option, either of which are worse than Trump.

I won't. I'm not going to be held responsible for the disaster that I think he would be. I voted in the primary but can't bring myself to do something I feel would be bad for our country...which would be putting Trump in the white house. If someone is going to take us further into the toilet, might as well be a democrat.

Yeah, it stinks, but no way I'm voting for Hildebeast. My father was a Dem County Judge (Miller) while Bill was the Governor in Arkansas and I heard too much about the Clintons to ever vote for either.

As much as one might admire that thought process, by not voting for an opposite of what is in place now (real or fake at this point), you are effectively and purposely speeding that ride down the toilet - which would make you even more 'responsible' than those gambling on someone doing what they say would do?
How would those inactions not make you feel "bad for our country"?

Don't get me wrong, I think Trump is a straight up democrat and is lying through his teeth, - History helps with that opinion, But undoubtedly, to take a swing with a crooked hammer and hope you don't smack your thumb is better than taking a swing with hammer that's pointed directly at your thumb.

I will, under no circumstances, ever vote for Donald J Trump. I don't care you think it's handing a vote to the opposition, I can't in good conscience vote for someone who I think would be a disaster. Sorry. If that makes me whatever you think it makes me, so be it. My vote, my choice

I'll vote for whoever is the republican nominee. There's too much at stake this election to sit it out. With the next POTUS nominating 3 or 4 supreme court justices we HAVE to get a good person in there or the country as we know it will be changed for the rest of our lives and possibly forever by the liberals legislating from the bench. I don't care for Donald Trump but he is dang sure better than Hillary! I only hope he will practice what he preaches.

I will vote for Trump if he wins the nomination

and if the Republican party refuses to allow him to run... I will vote for him anyway..

If Cruz wins the nomination outright I'll vote for Cruz..

but if the Republican party takes the nomination from Trump and gives it to Cruz.. I will vote for Trump..

When Trump gets up there and runs the country the way he runs his campaign it will be a 4 year disaster. He will ruin the name Republican and it will be nearly impossible to get another Republican elected. If Hillary gets up there and has the same disastrous 4 years (which I believe she would), we will have a good shot at getting a true conservative elected after her.

It was a little before my time but I was listening to Rush earlier and he was saying a lot of people are saying the same thing about Trump that they were saying about Reagan. The people who considers themselves the "true" conservatives were saying we don't need to allow Reagan to be that close to the nuclear button and that his tax cuts would never work. Just FYI Rush is a Cruz fan. I will vote for either of the two unless it's a brokered convention and it doesn't go the way of the people.

See bold above to keep the question in context.

IF Obama's first years were a disaster (to conservatives) but NOT to Democrats (because they are blind)..and he went two terms, how would Hillary's own "disaster" (in conservative eyes) pave the road for getting a true conservative elected after her?
Heres the math"
Obama -
Conservative viewpoint:HORRIBLE first 4 years, HORRIBLE Policies, and HORRIBLE performance
Democrat viewpoint : meh

His first tenure left the conservatives PRIMED to get a republican in the WH.
FAILED.

HILLARY:
Conservative viewpoint:HORRIBLE first 4 years, HORRIBLE Policies, and HORRIBLE performance
Democrat viewpoint : meh

Her first tenure will leave the conservatives PRIMED to get a republican in the WH.
Same exact place we were after Obama's first term.

We are PRIMED NOW for a Republican/Conservative in the Whitehouse.. it does NOT get any better than this... and yet ...here we sit.. discussing how itll be easier after 4 years of Hillary...

if trump wins I will vote for him. In fact I will vote for whichever republican wins. Any one of them are far better than the dem choices.

" I believe that democracy has so far disappeared in the United States that no "two evils" exist. There is but one evil party with two names, and it will be elected despite all I can do or say. There is no third party."
W.E.B. Dubois (The Nation October 1956)

I will not vote for Trump because I do not believe he is a conservative. I believe that he and Hillary are closer in line on policy than He and the moderate republicans. Trump can put out all the statements he wants, his actions over the last 40 years show me he will be as harmful to America as any democrat.

As it stands I will not vote for Trump in November ... however, he has one chance of redeeming himself (if he is indeed the nominee, which I hope and pray he is not) and that would be to announce his entire cabinet, VP, and SCOTUS appointment ... if that group of advisers is sufficiently strong and reasonable I might be persuaded to hold my nose and vote for him. Otherwise I may just be voting for a Libertarian for the first time in my life.

It's not going to matter who is voted into the oval office.
Won't anything change until America votes OUT the dem and rino senators and congress and replace them with REAL conservatives who have the ball s to stand up and use the power afforded to them. That's the only way keep the president in check and have him do his job instead of all the over reaching

Given the choice between

And

This is exactly my thinking, and I believe Trump to be an enemy of conservatism in general and the Constitution in particular. I won't say that I couldn't change my mind before November, but it would require some MAJOR convincing from Trump to convince me that I'm wrong about him. Blind faith comments of support from his fans don't do anything for me (no offense to you guys). Trump's history and current actions say a lot more about who he is than anything or anyone else ever could, and I don't like what that says about him at all.

That said, the alternative is equally horrible, so it's an extremely tough call. Also, who knows what all is going to play out in the next 8 months? There may not be a Republican Party left to worry about salvaging. Hillary may be indicted. Lord only knows what else could happen. I'll decide for sure in about 7.9 months, I imagine.

I pray that the decision will be between Ted Cruz and somebody else, not including Trump as an independent, come November.

Blind faith comments of support from his fans don't do anything for me (no offense to you guys). Trump's history and current actions say a lot more about who he is than anything or anyone else ever could, and I don't like what that says about him at all.

That said, the alternative is equally horrible, so it's an extremely tough call. Also, who knows what all is going to play out in the next 8 months? There may not be a Republican Party left to worry about salvaging. Hillary may be indicted. Lord only knows what else could happen. I'll decide for sure in about 7.9 months, I imagine.

I pray that the decision will be between Ted Cruz and somebody else, not including Trump as an independent, come November.

I am more afraid of what Trump's affect to the midterm election is senate and house seats if elected. I think I'm with Hamilton on this, but don't think I could vote for Hillary. I would vote for Bernie over Trump. No way his policies would pass and he is Pro 2nd.

I'm pretty sure that speech ended up with him getting shot.

I've already held my nose and voted for Cruz in the primary. I won't do it again in the General. If he's the nominee, looks like I'll be voting third party (I don't believe in not voting.)
