That's the dumbest reason to vote. If what you said is the truth then clearly President Obama wouldn't have won because he being a Black Male was clearly playing with the deck stacked against him. I can't even debate with you due to my logic being offended by your statement.
what he said is very true. you gotta think for example he got the democratic spot over hillary. not saying everyone acts that way but i guarantee you a lot of people would vote obama because hilary couldnt win. then theres also the independent parties and such where people wont vote nader or paul cause they cant win so they will just vote whatever democrat or republican they think is better out of the 2 who possibly can win. just like now, people might vote trump cause huckabee cant win, or at least thats how they see it.
basically any nominee republican or democrat doesnt mean they are the best for the job, just means they have the best chance of winning. popularity contest. money contest too.
