In my last post, I wrote that I worried that the polls showing large leads for Hillary Clinton might encourage people “to skip voting or ‘vote their conscience’ in protest of Hillary, the system, etc., giving Trump, whose supporters WILL SHOW UP, the victory.”
Call it the “Nadar Effect” if you will; the result is potentially devastating (for those who thought there was little difference between George W. Bush and Al Gore, let’s look at the statistics from the – ongoing – Iraq War).
The collusion of Clinton and Trump as equally bad is dangerously petulant.Votes matter. And protest votes are a statement, yes. But they bring little solace to those impacted by the fallout.
