Incentives in the polls

Elections seem to force the candidates to manage perceptions of cause & effect at the expense of real value. For the re-elected or hard-line-to-party personnel, it is not about giving the people what they want, it is about convincing the people that what they got or are going to get is what they should want. Those who don’t find the argument convincing are written off as not knowing what’s best for themselves.
