Uhhh...he's voting republican because he always votes republican, and he's pushing for democratic ideas and pissed because the keep getting rid of those ideas, but he's still voting republican because he's always voted republican...sounds like he's straight party voting to me.

I whole-heartedly agree about the 3rd party thing. CNN had an interview with Bob Bar, and there was a noteable quote in the article: CNN said, "Will he win? No." It's probably true, but the media gives relativly no attention to the 3rd party candidates (so individuals who do not investigate further than one or two news sites can easily miss the candidate entirely), and they spout the general idea that 3rd parties are not worth seriously considering.
