The primary nominee is essentially decided by the time the primary eletion hits my state. I don't lend support in regards to physical effort or donation until after that is decided. I have voted for a candidate who wasn't the "winner" in the primary as I thought they were the best candidate, that, and sometimes it's a protest vote of sorts. With the general election, I send in money via the net monthly and work with county democrats to get signs, stickers, and rides to go. Election day is almost nirvana like for me, I just love all the partying and watching republicans cringe when their majority melts away.
