What can I say to someone who wants to talk about the upcoming election, but I don't?

We have an upcoming election next month (May) in Canada. I don't mind sitting down and talking politics with someone if they will voice their point of view and then hear mine in a polite, respectful manner. But what I don't like is occasionally I run into somebody who'll just start bad mouthing another candidate without giving credible reasons. They'll say "oh that guys a nutbar" or "he'll never win so why are you wasting your vote?" What can I say to them that cuts the conversation short?
Nothing rude, crude or insulting please. Maybe something witty that just makes them stop and think, and not carry on.
