So There's That

  1. That looks pretty messed up, but I suppose it's possible that the same general group of people responding are thinking: on average, the donkeys are less bad than the elephants, but they're still bad, and while the elephants probably will make things worse, there's at least a chance they'll make things better; and I'd rather take a chance on the latter.

    Personally, I find that reasoning more or less the same as playing the lottery, which is to say, terrible, but I guess some people could rationally (in the economic sense) act that way.
