If you're in a state that is strong Obama or strong Romney, then the best idea is to vote your first choice.
I'd be suspicious if I agreed with anyone 100%
Isn't the likelihood of that practically impossible? If you're 100% in agreement with a large group of other people, then I'm afraid to tell you that you are part of a cult and your thoughts are being manipulated.

Some people might think it's more important to build momentum for a third party in the future -- other people might not be willing to take the risk of a loss to a candidate whose views would be completely out of line with their own.
Of course it's obviously a personal decision for everyone. That's really the beauty of it. It's a little grating when other people try to tell me that I vote wrong or that other people vote wrong. There is no right or wrong. It's like the stock market - it's always right.
anyway, what I'm saying is that I really doubt the majority of people think they're betting on the super bowl. I'm sure that most citizens are responsible enough to know what they're doing, and do what they feel is best. We see the results late that night or the next day. Some people refuse to believe facts shown to their very own eyes... that's another thing entirely...
the only thing that I think is really wrong with these elections is the voter suppression that becomes more obvious each year.
I feel that the results of the 2000 election were completely manipulated and we might never know the whole truth.
This doesn't give me reason to ditch the whole thing. I think we must all use this as reason to be even more vigilant, not less.

But isnt voting third party a move in the right direction. the more votes they get, the more they will be taken seriously next time.
I felt this way 20+ years ago, and often acted on the thought. Nothing changed. The system is so locked up by the two major parties that until the majority of the country wakes up and is so outraged by the way we've been taken for a ride, I don't believe anything will change.
Yeah you loose this time, but either way we lose.
I also believe the lesser of evils is becoming increasingly evil, so I'm unwilling to go down that road anymore.
Romney is terrible, but the President is a hypocrite and a murderer.
