Finally I had some time to make the poll I wanted to make for weeks. I'll do a Democratic poll as well.

Happy voting!

Crap. I voted too early. Put me down for Sasse because the Dem nominee is disgusting. 

I don't know about the Democratic nominee in NE but I welcome your support for Senator Sasse.

I also don't know enough about the unknown nominees like Witzke, Waters, Mehta or Messner from the GOP actually. I'd probably support all incumbents and some I know.

He's a Never-Trumper with no spine, but it's better than Janicek.

I dont know enough about some of the other states but I like Ben Sasse. If I were from Maine I dont know if I'd vote for Collins... but I think overall shes a good Senator. For the others I either dont know enough about them or I don't support them.

Despite being a Republican and then a moderate independent (voting for the most moderate candidate regardless of party) for most of my adulthood, I can no longer even think about supporting a Republican candidate unless they've been a firm "never Trump" at almost every step of the way.  As none of these candidates are on my ballot, I haven't taken the time to study which, if any, might meet that requirement.

None. I don’t think any of those is really that socially liberal. If I had to pick one, then maybe John James.

I would not support Witzke and Perkins and maybe Waters (I don't know him, the RI GOP took back their endorsement...)

Charlie Baker endorsed O'Connor, so that seems safe to me.

I don't know Mehta and Messner but from their endorsements they seem to be okay.

Honestly none

Even if Susan Collins could have passed.

Murkowski in Alaska is also a decent senator.

The worst are by far Connell and Lindsey Graham, Lindsey just make fun of the people.

 

As candidate I agree for Tuberville.

Out of all senators against a generic Dem, I think Murkowski would maybe be the only one that I would vote for, if it wasn't too competitive. Maybe Romney, but it would very much depend on how I was feeling that day lol.

Tom Thilis because his opponent is unfaithful.

Tommy Tuberville because he’s a fresh face. I want to see new younger republicans in safe red states.

Mark Curran because he seems to have integrity from what I’ve read on him. He is also much more moderate, and abandoned the democrats in Illinois after the scandals of Rob Blagojevich (corrupt govenor). He spent a week in jail to protest for jail reform. He also has no chance, but I’d still vote for him because I want to see more politicians like him. Not old fucks who have held office for a billion years and don’t care about their constituents.

The worst are McConnell and Graham. Graham sucks up to Trump to win, likely because he can’t win on his own merits. McConnell only cares about enhancing his power, and has held office for decades.

I don't know a thing about the vast majority of these people. Of those I do know something about (Cotton, Perdue, Cornyn, Ernst, Graham, and ESPECIALLY McConnell) I detest them all, each for their own special but unique reasons...

Brave

What's so brave? It's not the Communist Party of the USSR, Communist Party of China, Worker's Party of Korea, National Socialist German Workers' Party, or National Fascist Union list of "official candidates endorsed by the party," in the non-elections in those respective nations after full power by those parties was taken. Hell, it's not even the United Russia party list in Russia or the ZANU-PF list in Zimbabwe. Where's the "bravery," needed? Certainly other traits could be called out. But how so bravery?

Alabama: Tuberville gets my vote by a hair. I think he's a punk but his conservatism is appreciated in the Senate over Jones' rather liberal approach, especially for Alabama.

Alaska: Sullivan is a stuffed suit Republican which I will easily take over Al Gross.

Arizona: This is another close race for me. But it's got to be McSally, I don't want to throw that seat away as uninspiring as she is.

Arkansas: RICKY DALE HARRINGTON JR. FOR SENATOR. This is the only race with a prominent Libertarian and I would cut off my right hand to see him beat Tom Cotton.

Colorado: Hickenlooper is good. Gardner is slightly better.

Delaware: I don't support Qheads. It would have to be Libertarian candidate Nadine Frost for me. Though Senator Coons is one of my favorite Senate Democrats.

Georgia: I'll be voting for David Perdue over Ossoff largely because Ossoff is a living meme and Perdue is good independent of Trump.

Georgia (Special): Still undecided here, I'll probably end up voting for Warnock just because I think his voice is powerful though I wish his campaign would have done more. There will be a debate here that will help me decide between him and Collins in a week and some change. Fuck Loeffler.

Idaho: Jim Risch is fine, easily better than his far-left opponent. Easy vote.

Illinois: While I would have preferred Peggy Hubbard in the primary, Mark Curran is an acceptable nominee for the party.

Iowa: I'm an Ernst guy. I just hope she reforms Post-Trump.

Kansas: We beat Kobach now Marshall better not fuck this up.

Kentucky: McConnell... I guess? I just don't want to lose the seat, I find McGrath annoying as hell anyway.

Louisiana: The Democrat's ok, not worth losing the seat though.

Maine: For all the shit she gets, Susan Collins is exceptionally good on a handful of things and I like her.

Massachusetts: Markey's far-left, Kevin O'Connor is sane and not Crazy Shiva, easy choice.

Michigan: Prayers up for my boy John James.

Minnesota: Jason Lewis is yuck, but I'll take a conservative in that seat by a hair over Tina Smith.

Mississippi: Fuck off confederate Cindy. You're worth voting in moderate Mike Espy for, he clearly actually cares about the state and all its residents of every color.

Montana: Close race, but Bullock isn't good enough to flip Montana blue for me, Daines holds on to my support.

Nebraska: One of the very few Senators I actively like, Sasse is an easy support for me aided by how gross the Dem is.

New Hampshire: Messner's whatever, better than Shaheen. 

New Jersey: Thik Rik has my support over Gory Cory.

New Mexico: Ronchetti is an actually good candidate and it's a shame he's running this year because in a good year he might have been able to turn NM red.

North Carolina: Cunningham is gross and definetly not worth losing the seat over. Thom is dumb, Callingham is dumber.

Oklahoma: Stuff suit GOP for the win?

Oregon: I don't support Qheads. Merkley is also insane. Libertarian candidate Gary Dye it is for me.

Rhode Island: Waters seems like an inoffensive conservative, I'll toss him the vote.

South Carolina: As much of a worm Lindsey Graham is, I don't want to lose the seat and Harrison isn't worth it like Espy is.

South Dakota: Rounds is just like Inhofe, whatever another stuffed suit "conservative"

Tennessee: As gross as Hagerty is, I can't see myself trusting Bradshaw.

Texas: Another stuffed conservative, another vote.

Virginia: Gade seems pretty cool actually, shame he won't win.

West Virginia: Capito is whatever. 

Wyoming: My girl Cynthia Lummis is one of the few Senate candidates I'm actually excited about this year.

I watch every primary night and as many debates as I can. I find national politics fascinating, but you can’t get a nuanced view of American national politics without understanding the local politics of each individual state, that’s just a core truth about a federalist system such as ours. Therefore, I spend ungodly amounts of time observing and learning about the other 49 because it helps me better understand the one out of the many.

Yes! If I could choose one Senate Candidate to win this year, he would one of my top options. For one, we need a viable third party, and on another point, he has a really good platform on most issues, much better than your average Libertarian Candidate. He's also going up against Tom Cotton.

I tend to prefer global and historical politics (including the U.S., but many, many other places, as well) in a much broader sense, even if the fine detail I can realistically retain is not as deep.

The QAnon followers have always piqued my interest.  I'm surprised that people continue to buy into that story despite all evidence pointing to it being a massive LARP.  Still waiting on those arrests lol.

At that rate, it's not hard at all to fill the membership of a group like QAnon.

Looking forward to seeing Cynthia Lummis in the Senate. She should be aligned with Rand Paul on a large number of issues.
