I'm confused. Are you saying it's only ever sensible to vote for someone you know will win?

No, I didnt say that, I was trying to help you with the definition by giving the extremes. I'm starting to feel like you're knit picking at what is a fairly common and obvious idea among the voting population.

I haven't read any of this so apologies if it's been mentioned, but Bernie brought up the "wage gap" and I dislike him a bit more now. Why do these politicians blatantly lie? Makes me sad.
