55. I'll vote (D).
Even though I agree with MadHound I'll vote (D). Partially because the planet is dying. Partially because the Constitution is dying. Partially because the economy is dying. Partially because law enforcement is dying. Partially because people are dying. Partially because I doubt my votes will be accurately recorded, so what's the difference?
