@vcczar I'm going to have to chronicle my partisan voting affiliation, I've found myself to be a swing voter in these past few elections; not unlike the tendencies of say a Whig in a Border State like Maryland or Lower North State like Ohio or Pennsylvania.

@Conservative Elector 2 I am eminently curious as to why you are a Buchananbro so to appropriate a popular modern term. Really why you straight-ticketed 3 lackluster Democrats.

We need some votes, especially in 1852.

I try to vote from a neutral perspective. Like if I lived in that year, without knowing what we know today about these politicians. I still guess, that I would have been a conservative back then and therefore a Democrat. It's not that I think Buchanan is great, but if Fremont had done a better job is another question. Perhaps the civil war had  started earlier.....

It’s supposed to be you as of today being transported back then. So you would know about today.

I'll probably do the same as I have been voting based on who comes closest to my beliefs so no party preference.

So I voted in every poll from a view point like I would not know, I am sorry about that but anyway I guess my votes would not have been that different. 

I am not sure if voting for Fremont would be a good option in order to keep the nation together. As I stated, I believe this would have led the nation into turmoil a few years earlier . The only thing I believe that could have prevented the civil war is electing Douglas (or maybe Bell) in 1860.

Nothing, and I mean nothing, was going to prevent the Civil War. It's really an irrelevant point because it was going to happen at some point. It was inevitable. It's also possible that in this scenario the Civil War starts as soon as 20 years early in 1841 with James Birney inaugurated as a strong abolitionist President.

At this point, with the results we have so far, it's extremely likely the United States as we know today would not exist, so the Civil War moving up 20 years is absolutely in the realm of possibility.
