I don't vote for a party. I vote for or against a candidate based on where their platform relates to mine. In the 2016 Presidential election I would have voted for Jim Webb had he been on the ballot, but my entire life the left has nominated crap candidates.

I'll almost certainly vote for Republicans. And I suspect the Republicans will win in 2020 nationally. As James Carville said, "It's the economy, stupid." The economy is going well right now and all the Democrats are running on is, "We aren't Trump," just like Romney ran on "I'm not Obama." Its a losing platform.

As a registered Indy in FL, it was tough for me to cast my poll saying I expect to vote democratic in 2020. I knew the poll question providing party choice vs. candidates would likely cause a pause before answering. I'm more in alignment with the Libertarian perspective but feel without a mass insurgency of voter interest, that would be a wasted vote and could cause the current regime to be elected to another term. As much as I have to pinch my nose because of the political stench, I expect to vote democratic in 2020.

Now that I'm in Illinois I have no qualms about voting L for POTUS even if a relative buffoon like Johnson is nominated, the only Republican I can see myself voting for in the future would be Rand but one would think he wouldn't even try for POTUS until 2024. Locally I'll probably lean towards the GOP, but more often than not it'll be write-in candidates since I live in the 5th bluest district in the nation (perfect counter-example to Owl...) and I doubt they run many Republicans around here.

We usually see more libertarians than democrats in local races around here.

The country races could be interesting this time around. There are all sorts of unconfirmed rumors about various alleged improprieties on the part of incumbents (none of which is backed by any hard evidence, as far as I know), we had a road bond election that was very unpopular, and the SJRA (led by several of the county judge's good buddies) made a complete hash of Hurricane Harvey. So there's room for some changes. I doubt we'll elect any democrats, but there are republican challengers to the incumbents. And who knows, we might just elect a libertarian or two.

We don't get Libertarians very often in Arkansas, more likely to get a Green running than a Libertarian.

Funny thing is until the 2012 cycle, the GOP would concede some races, even state-wide and your choice was vote Democrat, vote Green, or not vote. I ended up voting for several Green's just make my opposition known. I may end up voting Green some in 2018 if the Dems concede a race against someone I dislike (though there are few people I dislike more than the Dem AG we had in 2010 when the Green opponent got 27%). Greens have only one state race winning a legislative seat in 2008

Locally I'll probably vote GOP for state legislature because my rep and senator are moderate by 2016 standards (ie. they vote like traditional Republicans and won't embarrass me by saying coloreds shouldn't smoke pot because they have different genes) both have been responsive and will take time to explain why they will or will not vote the way I ask. County level the GOP candidate I liked lost the primary and while I supported his opponent in the general, I won't support him again, he tried to reduce the sheriff's budget for patrol vehicles even though the sheriff's office already keeps patrol vehicles longer than any city police department in the county.

Really depends. Our last Democrat governor was a fiscal conservative and when he left office the governor with the highest approval rate in the nation. Had to fight like hell against the GOP legislature to cut the sales tax on groceries. Managed to stave off cuts to higher ed. Pushed a new higher ed funding formula would that would starve four year schools of funding for remediation to try to force them to nudge kids not ready for college into the two year schools and reward student retention and degree progress. Only got part of it and our Republican governor dusted off the unpassed parts put a new name on them and got the rest passed. Our current GOP governor wants to reimpose the full sales tax on groceries and give low income people a "rebate" on their tax return so he can cut the income tax from 6.9% on everything over $35,100 to 6.9% from 35,100 to $150,000 and then drop it to 6% on $150,001 and up. I'll end up paying a net $150 a year to fund the income tax cut. Someone paying $100 a week on groceries making less than $150,000 will pay an extra $260 a year to pay for the tax cut for people making more than $150,000.

I'm in Tarrant County (Fort Worth/Arlington) so it's not as red as other parts Texas but my vote wouldn't really matter on the national level if voting for either of the two primary parties. I find myself aligning with libertarians more than other parties anyways, although of course I do not align with every position. Unless the Libertarian candidate is such a complete nutjob I'll vote for him/her in the next election. Rand Paul could also get my vote, but I doubt he'll be running in 2020. He could be a good candidate in 2024 though. I've voted for Johnson each of the last two elections but voted Republican prior to that (first election in 2000)

Oklahoma so my vote doesn't matter either. Will vote for any primary challenger if one steps forward, Trump will remain the nominee, then libertarian in November like last time, even if that's Johnson's gardener.

But if I were in a state that mattered and the left ran a Warren or equally destructive individual, I'd just have to live with the self loathing and vote Trump.
