@mira It always amazes me that people think this is okay. We hold two incompatible beliefs: only VOTES should influence election results; political analysis and vote rule-changes are fine.
Well the thing is that they wouldn't spend billions to change the rules or game the system if it didn't affect the fucking outcomes of the elections.
In my experience, the only people who tend toward the more "fluid" option here are the ones who have no perceived qualms with either outcome.
It's not mental gymnastics to believe that a given politician with enough resources to execute an advanced data-driven election campaign has the interests of the meek at heart. It's simple ignorance of statistical optimization.
It's not necessarily that the politician is "bad," it's that the method is inhumane by definition.
