Hypothesis: Voters reward us for stoking their fears, not saving their asses

so many voters just told us they don't give a damn about a pandemic, about hundreds of thousands killed by malicious craven incompetence, or any efforts to save them from that pandemic

they care more (only) about "Antifa"

6. works 10x easier than campaigning on issues to win elections

 

democrats keep BELIEVING if we make the effective argument we persuade voters. What is it called when your repeat the same action countless times and achieves the same results?

4. Voters ARE us. They want things done. The framing of your hypothesis omits service. nt

5. Not this voter. Fear makes me want to take action.

Though I canít take credit to that as a born liberal Iím less inclined to fear than conservatives typically are. I certainly donít fear change just because itís change.

And I am a stranger to ďlearned helplessness,Ē a psychological term worth looking up, though I canít take credit for being less vulnerable to that dysfunction because Iím female.
