I wonder how many Obama voters are just like this…

I found this on Ebaum’s World.

I am totally unsurprised. So many voters are swayed by looks. That famous story about the Kennedy and Nixon debate; polls taken after it
showed that most people who listened to it on the radio
felt that Nixon had won, while most who watched it on
television declared Kennedy the victor.

Obama most definitely gets my vote on looks.

Who would you pick in a beauty contest?

  1. Obama SHOULD get your vote- based on looks and everything else.

    LOL.

    On a serious note- good point. It is amazing how the subconscious mind can sneak up on us… implanting impressions caused by inappropriate things such as the candidates’ physical appearances… as opposed to the important stuff like the issues, voting record, experience and trustworthiness.

    I think it happens more than people realize- even to those of us who pride ourselves on being more open-minded than that.

    Thanks for lettin’ me weigh in!

    Obama/Biden ’08

  2. haha, I saw this on youtube earlier and it’s… scary.

    But one thing, whoever uploaded it to ebaumsworld seems to have cut out the last few minutes where they do the same thing to a McCain supporter, giving him Obama’s policies, and the same thing happens.

    No wonder it’s things like looks and scandal that seem to be driving this election when voters are so uninformed. Is sensationalism a symptom or a cause of this problem?
