Do you strategically mod vote?
Although I do not strategically mod vote and I have only voted positively for three moderates, I have noticed there are a lot of negative votes.
There is only one or possibly two moderators which I am against but I fhave decided not to down-vote. However, in general I have noticed many moderates are openly down-voted.
Do you think it is strategic to down-vote moderates who are not in your top selection?
Strategic mod vote: up-vote the candidate you are in favor of but down vote all others regardless of election platform.
When I say platform I am referring to a election platform such as campaign promises.
Is it necessary for downvoting for the election process?
By choosing not to down vote candidates of other platforms I am hurting my initial election votes? If people only vote positively for candidate (which appears to be the majority of voters) but others strategically down vote are they voting twice?
Should down voting be allowed?
Assume Tom, Dick and Harry run for the election.
Tom (Assume Tom has 2 people that vote for him but also down-votes Dick and Harry)
Dick (Assume Dick has 2 people that votes for him but do not down-vote)
Harry (Assume Harry has 2 people that vote for him but also down-votes Dick and Tom)
Each candidate should have one vote each but say Harry runs on a particular platform that appeals to a certain type of person.
The results are:
However, they should have equal amounts of positive votes. The down votes actually detract from the personality that refrain from down-voting.
Just for discussion...
