Today I ran into a poll and a tool that were interesting given the discussions about strategic voting on my last post.
The second: Vote for Climate – a site to help people make their strategic voting decision, specifically to help stop a Conservative majority.
I’m not a fan of strategic voting myself, but I don’t think it’s wrong either. My objection to it is that it’s based on what you don’t want, not necessarily promoting the ideals you really agree with, so you can’t ever expect to build the country you dream of. However, unless one political party truly represents all of your positions I guess a vote is a trade-off, therefore somewhat strategic.
