Creating the Uber Voter

Creating the Uber Voter

Most politicians I know aren't all that irrational. They're intensely focused on re-election (to the exclusion of almost anything else), they typically have a very sophisticated view of the sliver of voters and votes they need to get re-elected (usually a small, vocal sub-group within the small sub-group of people who bother to vote in the first place), and they focus their time and energy on keeping that group of voters happy, frequently to the exclusion of their other constituents, or the public good in general.
