Your ballot will have all of the candidates on it. You can select whomever you desire.
Your vote is private, and no one will know who you voted for but you. In some states, you may need to register with a party to vote in that parties primary (which you can do w…ith your state board of elections), but in a general election, you may vote for whomever you want, regardless of your party affiliation.
Yes. Your party affiliation only counts for the primary election.
As of 2013, there are more US voters registered as Republicans than as Democrats. But that doesn't mean everyone votes for their party affiliation. In 2010, self…-identification of US registered voters was 52% Republican to 43% Democrat.
Actually..."An August 2008 estimate is that 51% of registered voters, including independents, lean toward the Democratic Party and 38% lean toward the Republican Party." The o…riginal answer below was taken from Pew Research in 2006. Source: http://pewresearch.org/pubs/933/a-closer-look-at-the-parties-in-2008 "Democrats still hold a 48% to 40% lead among registered voters, and a modest lead of 47%-43% among likely voters."

This is a very good question. What makes it a very good question is the fact that it is very difficult to answer. Thirty States in the USA require some kind of party affilia…tion (or non-affiliation) as a part of their voter registration system. So if you are looking for "registered Democrats or Republicans" you are limited to those 30 states and can't look in 20 states that do not require registration If you are looking for the number of people who "consider" themselves as Democrat or Republican you can look to statistically significant surveys, such as the Rasmussen survey. Rasmussen reported 35.4% reported themselves as Republican and 32.7% reporting themselves as Democrats. 32.4% said they were "Independent." This polling asks 15,000 Americans to report their affiliation. This may seem like a few, but it is a very good number over all for determining the breakdown nationally. You might ask 35.4% of what? What do I multiply 35.4% by to determine the number of persons who consider themselves Republicans. Too bad, we don't have that number, and whatever it is it changes every day. There are several other major polls (Pew and Gallop, to name a few), which show slightly different numbers indicating a Democratic advantage, but, over time, the longer-term trend for a decade has been for more people to identify as Independent (now almost 40%) than either Democrat or Republican (both which vay from about 25 to 35%, depending on the year and poll). However, if the question includes "leaners" (self-identified Independents who usually vote for one party), the percentages change significantly. Democrats consistently have about 50%, while Republicans muster a variable 35-45%, looking at data from the past decade. But in the end you must ask yourself exactly what is it that you want to know? Because when you include the peculiars of the many state parties and the peculiars of the country's election systems these numbers are frequently meaningless. In particular, the outcomes are driven by actual voters; the percentage of voters who actually vote varies significantly in any given election, with the percentage of registered voters who don't cast a vote varying from about 15% to as much as 30% or more.
In some states they can if they choose to do so. The following are open primaries or caucus states: Alaska (Dem only), Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Ind…iana, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah (Dem only), Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia (but not Dem's...Rep's use a "convention" system here open to independants), Wisconsin. Other states one can but it will change their party affiliation or who are not registered in any party: California, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire. Closed primaries: Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, DC, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Wyoming. Different states have varying laws about when one must be registered with a particular party etc. to vote in that primary so one would have to check with the state to be certain one could vote in the coming election but this is the general layout of the states.

No typically the Democrats are more greedy. For example Mitt Romney donated millions to charity last year and Vice President Joe Biden only donated 3 hundred dollars. Democrat…s want to spend other peoples money but keep their own. Republicans want everyone to earn and keep their own money. So no...Republicans are not more greedy than Democrats.
Using the US-specific definitions of Conservative and Liberal (which, differ greatly from most of the rest of the world), as a party, the Democratic Party is less conservative… than the Republican Party. Now, this obviously also depends on the politicians under discussion. In addition, we usually split a politician's views on economics from those on social issues. So, it is entirely possible to have a politician who holds mostly Liberal views on social issues, and mostly Conservative views on financial/economic issues. And, the inverse is also possible (though, less common).
How many delegates a party distributes to each state is the individual party's choice. However, Republicans tend to run "winner take all" states, Democrats divide it up …according to % of votes per candidate - Originally it was probably thought better to have more delegates so that if a state winner had to share the delegates in a split, having more would make it easier for one candidate to break ahead and win. The originators probably didn't anticipate such a close race moving from state to state.
There are an estimated 47% registered democrat voters in the United States. There are an estimated 42% of registered voters in the United States that lean towards republic…an.
The democrats. Look at the previous american history. If you see what president it is and what party they are in, that's your answer. Republicans may like war but, we aren't t…hat consumed with it.
Does anyone have the answer?
