What we have learned from the 35 percent percent of New York state primary votes that Zephyr Teachout received is that there are a lot of people with the capability of voting who prefer to not understand how politics works. (Like making sausages) Also, they want to not have to think too much about how their rights are protected. Honest government, or less costly government, is a matter of grays rather than absolute blacks and whites.
By the way, I never have heard or seen Zephyr Teachout’s campaign platform. It was not discussed in your article, nor in any media story I saw or heard before or since the election. It was the same situation in the 2008 elections. Undefined “hope and change.” I could not vote for that phantom then, and I could not vote for another phantom, Zephyr Teachout, now.
