While many people don't know **** about **** when it comes to policies, I'd rather you vote on a firm belief that you know what your candidate plans to do, even if you're completely wrong.
It's like getting partial credit on a math question because even though your answer is wrong, you showed work that shows how you got to your answer. I'd prefer that over voting for someone because of their race, heritage, gender, or party.
