So is it accurate that most voting is swayed by partisan voters anyway, who are more likely to come out and vote, etc etc? Where did I read that?
On a similar note: how different would outcomes be if voters focused more on their local issues when voting, rather than the president? There seems to be a lot of focus on the presidential candidates but very little discussion (and I'm generalising here), about local propositions up for vote. Some are getting more attention than others, but if those were the focus, if people were more concentrated on the votes that make a difference to their immediate lives, would that affect presidential voting outcomes?
I think so. But then I'm just thinking aloud here. Post-coffee but early morning.
