The premise was proven with the election of Bill Clinton back in 1992 with 43% of the vote to WH Bush with 37% and the spoiler Ross Perot with 19% assuring Clinton's victory. It was brought out in the election of Bill harassing women and verifiable charges of rape and the fact of his disdain for the military and his draft dodging. Still folks and more women than men voted for him no matter how much of a low life he was.
Now we have Obama in the race with his 20 long year association with his Black racist hate America church and a lot of Americans support him Black and White and on this forum. He gives good feel good speeches and smiles a lot. Clinton did the same thing. I guess we will always have a good percent of the "electorate" to whom character or the lack of it does not matter in the least.
Voting should be a privilege not a right. Literacy tests should be given to at least ascertain if the voter can read and understand a simple statement. Years ago they were required in most states but the liberal Democrats and the commie loving Democratic appointed judges abolished them. Now we have a certain percentage of the voters who only want hand outs and do not understand that to prosper you have to work. What a shame.
