Gary Johnson... Romney and Obama almost equal.

The next election (2016) will be the best shot at a third party ever winning anything.
Maybe. If a big name with a ton of money goes third party, perhaps. But the most likely outcome is, Obama will win in 2012, and the Republicans will EVISCERATE the Democrats in 2016. The democrats have no one. The next four years will go rather badly no matter who's elected, and since it'll be Obama, the Republicans will be able to boast about 8 awful years just like the Democrats did in 08. And the Republicans have some really talented guys, like Rubio, Jindal, Ryan, who will be able to build a level of excitement like that of Obama in 08.

If the Republican party were as bleak as the Democratic, I could see it.

Umm... the Republicans don't have anyone sane enough to get half the country to vote for him, except maybe Huntsman (Christie doesn't qualify because he's fat; sorry, voters won't vote in a fat man). And no Tea Bagger would vote for him (he's a RINO in their eyes) so there goes a huge chunk of their base.

As for the Dems not having anyone?

It's funny how they ask you if you believe in the theory of evolution. I must be one of the only high rated Dems that said no.

Edit: I'm also pro-life and against most illegal immigrant benefits. I think that is my republican part.

Jill Stein believes that requiring welfare workers to seek work is a form of forced slave labor and that American banks should have be nationalized. Even though I matched her more than all the others with 80%, I don't think I will vote for her even though I live in a state that is not in play, and can vote my conscience without feeling like a bad guy after I voted for Nader over Kerry while living in Florida.

Serious question, how come no one is getting 100% Romney? I thought he stands on either side of each issue, like in abortion, he's pro life and pro choice at the same time
