Does it Matter if Politicial Candidates Have Personal Flaws? [POLL]
There have been recent discussions in both major political races in NJ in the past 2 weeks over what could be considered ‘flaws’ by 2 of the candidates.
Steve Lonegan has recently said that Cory Booker refusing to comment on his own sexuality was “weird” and that Lonegan enjoys “being a man.” Gubernatorial candidate Barbara Buono said this week that she doesn’t think that pictures of Governor Christie frolicking on the beach would make people want to come to shore, which Governor Christie took as a jab at his weight.
Both of these comments made by Lonegan and Buono could be considered a form of political bullying.
Should a candidate’s weight or sexual orientation sway your vote? Would either one of those perceived ‘flaws’ by the candidates affect their performance?
