Was thinking about this for a long time. Years, actually. Are our elections based on swaying the smart or stupid part of our population. I'm betting on stupid. The smart people already know who is the "best" candidate. The stupid, are swayed.

Otherwise, why have road signs, hats, buttons, and car stickers. Like I'm gonna see a car sticker that says "Vote OBAMA" or "Romney 2012!!!" and that's gonna change my mind? Why even put this sticker on your car? Your stating your political views. Nice. Does it change mine? No. Might make a stupid person key your car though, or ... steal your yard signs. Stupid people steal yard signs. Stupid people key cars with political slogans they don't believe in.

So, to make a long question even longer... do you need to win the hearts of stupid people to win an election? I think you do.

Note video has racism and swear words.... and an awesome song. Might have to turn it up. I did.
