This piece of writing is out of more observations rather backed with research hence views could vary.
Over two decades I have observed that learned people had difficult time to put their foothold to be a politician. Even some who have made it to the top had shaky career in politics. In spite the growth in information excess and dissemination on ‘know your candidate’, before the elections. This information is yet to make a remarkable change in choosing the candidate. I wondered why?!
I see that the way the candidates persuades the voters by the depth of conviction than the height of logic. People who have used the latter are often defeated over the conviction. May be we buckle more to enthusiasm over the proof of credibility.
Seems logically? What do you think?
