Voters are not stupid

There is the belief that voters around the globe are an idiotic mass, simple to manipulate and not able to choose according to their interests or principles.

Still, many examples in very different countries show that this is not the case, that people vote, possibly in a way that observers don’t understand or don’t like, but following a logic.

The last example is the differential vote in Barcelona between European and Municipal elections.

A fully different  result even if in an environment deeply affected by ideological and pre-political approaches that should have dictated univocal behavior.

That was not the case.  See those results below, from newspaper La Vanguardia

My vote saved my country

I’ve voted abroad. A piece of one of the six foreigner senators is mine. I have contributed to the healing of poor Italia. May not last long, but it is quite a satisfaction.

Why did we suppose remote Italians were right wing? They might be, but in Italy the problem is not to have the right in government, but to have thugs occupying the power for their own interest.

Welcome back, old, tired, confuse but yet decorous Italy.
