Should I vote for Trump in the Wisconsin primary?

I know this is a dangerous game, and I have never done it before. But I think it would be easier for either Democratic candidate to defeat Trump in the general election rather than Cruz. Would it be wise to help Trump win in Wisconsin? The latest WI poll has Cruz leading Trump, 36%-35% (http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2016/president/wi/wisconsin_republican_presidential_primary-3763.html)

I will happily vote for either Dem candidate in the general election, but I fear Cruz more than Trump in the general.

1. Don't play games. Just vote your conscience.

2. This.

Trying to change the outcome other than who you support is disingenuous.

3. No. Don't play games.

Vote for the candidate you actually want to see as President.

5. No.

 

Don't raise Republican turnout, that helps them more.

Vote your conscience - and I hope it's Bernie.

6. Not unless you are willing to support him in November.

And if so, why are you on DU?

11. All's fair in love and politics..

Just don't vote republican in the general election! That's my advice. It's your call.

12. It's a valid thought. I would advise no simply because it's hard to tell whether Cruz or Trump

is more difficult to beat. If you're torn between the Dems, and highly confident that Trump is easier to beat, then I say vote for him. I'm not so sure though.

14. I say never vote for anyone BUT the person you'd prefer to see in the job.

 

YMMV...
