Fox News Bill O’Reilly found it hard to believe that despite so much public opposition to the direction the country’s going in, there are still people who support the Democrats. But he knows why they do! It can be summed up in one word: “emotion.”
Democrats have been very successful in convincing some voters that the Republican Party favors the rich and is anti-woman.
If you’re voting for the country, then you would be less likely to support the Democrats. But if you’re voting just for yourself and what you can get from the government, the option the Democrats provide, continued entitlements, is attractive.
It appears O’Reilly is exactly correct. Not only can Democrats play on misguided emotions, the Republicans are not effective in countering the arguments. For the GOP, it is an uphill battle, as the mainstream media is on Democrats’ side.
Do you agree with O’Reilly about why people keep voting for Democrats, even though it’s not in their best interest? Please leave us a comment and let us know what you think.
