The Arizona Republican primary is still four weeks out. But as one on the permanent mail in ballot list, my ballot arrived today*:
Cruz got my vote. Always liked him. Trump is the only reason illegal immigration is on the table and I respect him for that. But he's seriously wrong on other issues like imminent domain. "Gang of Eight" Rubio is a non-starter. I held my nose for Romney in 2012... they'll have to invent a weapons grade clothes-pin to hold off the stench long enough to pull a Marco lever. See also Romney 2012 where some 4M voters stayed home.
Carson and Kasich at single digits are irrelevant.. Never been a Kasich fan but I have great respect and could vote for Carson. but neither are viable as of today.... See.. this is what I mean about a few early states seriously affect our selections.
YMMV but that's my call.
I wonder if my vote will count on the day it's counted and that is the argument against early voting. I don't see it that way. I see my primary vote as supporting the guy that best aligns with my viewpoints, regardless of reported polls.
* ballot image is intentionally de-res-ed and distorted to deter ... voting shenanigans (why should I unintentionally abet someone else's ballot stuffing?)...but the candidates portion is (mostly) unchanged. (maybe)
