When Support Has Nothing to Do with What You Stand For

Sunday, October 5th, 2008

This week Time Magazine will run an article about voting patterns. In past elections, 28 percent voted for the wrong candidate. These people voted for candidates they disagreed with. So, why would people do that? OK, some voters may be stupid, but I’ll guess that many voted for the candidates they liked or feared less. He or she seemed to be like them, and so they assumed that candidate must support the same things they do.

Leaders of change take note.
