I do also. Elections have become more of a team sport to many people. Only thing that matters is that the team wins. Who's running and what they stand for no longer matters.
Democrats seem worse about this but many Republicans do it also. I've known people who completely reversed themselves on some pretty basic belief issues, such as abortion, just to be in line with their party's platform.
