Common sense in a nonsensical world.

Stuff you may or may not agree with depending on your echo chamber.

Supporting the Party, not the Person

Many people who plan to vote for Biden aren’t voting for Biden the person just as many people voting for Trump aren’t voting for Trump the person. They’re voting for an ideology; a party. The candidate just happens to be the figurehead of that ideology/party.

That’s not to say that any given person is fully in line with everything a candidate or party espouses. It says that, in general, they prefer the core principles of that party to the core principles of the other party.

There are definitely some people who like Biden the person or Trump the person but again, it’s likely that most informed people are casting a vote for the party that supports their core beliefs, not so much the person on the ballot.

We need to get past this assumption (sometimes accusation) that someone who is voting a certain way must be supporting the candidate. No, the big picture is much larger than the person.
