How I vote for candidates

I've always had a general philosophy when voting for political candidates of all offices. I don't always have to follow it, but it's a good guide.

When I first voted back in 1985 for the first time (yes I'm that old ;) ) I was told I'd have to always vote for the lesser of two evils. For 1985 that was true for me. I couldn't imagine worse than that.

About 10 years later (in the 1990s) I found this philosophy wasn't good enough. My choices actually got worse. My new philosophy became vote for the person I hate the least. I couldn't imagine worse than that.

About 10 years later (in the 21st century) I found that my 1990s philosophy wasn't good enough anymore. It got even worse. My new philosophy became vote for the person I think will screw up the least. I'm having a hard time imagining worse than that.

However I wonder how I might vote in 2015. Will my general philosophy on voting reflect even a worse political climate?
