@GreenWeaver-I remember that race. As a matter of fact, Giuliani pulled out after the Florida race.
The bandwagon was also in effect regarding the Presidential election that year. Obama was elected purely as a result of the bandwagon effect.
People saw that he was polling ahead of Mc Cain and wanted to make history by electing the first black President.
In fact, there were informal polls done regarding many of the Obama voters and none of them could articulate any of Obama’s positions on anything.
They all said that they voted for him because they liked his message of hope and change. Well we did change our country, but not for the better.
This is why people have to think for themselves and learn the issues and where the politicians stand on them.
People acted shocked and disappointed at Obama’s performance as President, but the information was available at the time of the election that proved that Obama would be a disaster for our country but unfortunately too many people looked the other way.
