Question: Is it better to vote tactically, or should you always vote with your conscience, regardless of the outcome?
Asked by Rob The Questioner (213.205.197.x) on August 21 2020, 6:29pm

    Vote tactically, absolutely! Voting your conscience, if the candidate has no chance of winning, is only useful for sending a message. The problem is, generally speaking, those messages are ignored by everybody. What was the message of Jill Stein and Gary Johnson receiving a total of a percent or so? That a small tiny minority was willing to throw their vote away...

    I agree. Anything to defeat the orange peril!
