RE: My voting history, what's yours?
88 - Bush
92 - Bush
96 - Dole
00 - Gore
04 - Kerry
08 - Obama
12 - Obama
16 - Hillary Clinton

----

When did I switch and why? Really, it was the impeachment of Bill Clinton over nothing (and remember I voted for Dole and Bush). About a week before the 1998 midterms, I remember saying to myself..."I want every Republican to lose", and that was it for me. George W Bush and his attacks on LGBT people as a campaign strategy in 04 was really the final straw. There's usually one Dem that I find so distasteful that I routinely vote for the GOP against her, but she'll never lose her seat.

I missed out on '08 by one year... It was my senior year in high school and me and my group of friends knocked doors for Obama in rural Ohio.

2012: Obama
2016: Clinton

The GOP seems to still have a few crossover style politicians like Olympia Snowe and Murkowsky. But generally, each party has gone thru a series of litmus tests for ideological purity.
Agreed. 2000 was the last election in which there was any real ideological overlap to any significant degree. You had people like Zell Miller for Gore, and people like Jim Jeffords for Bush. I don’t know if 9/11 had any impact on that or not, but since then it’s seemed to me that liberal-GOP and conserva-Dem has gone from rare to virtually extinct.

In retrospect, I should have. Bought into the 'throwing away your vote' lie.

RE: My voting history, what's yours?
I've pretty much been all over the map:

1992 - Bush
1996 - Clinton
2000 - Nader (didn't care for either Bush or Gore)
2004 - Kerry (wasn't a fan, but was desperately against Bush)
2008 - I voted 3rd party, but honestly don't remember who I voted for. I think I went libertarian.
2012 - Obama
2016 - Clinton
