Does meeting a political candidate in person increase the likelihood you will vote for them?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on July 11, 2008
“No. But if I’ve gone to the trouble to go somewhere to meet them, I’m probably already inclined to vote for them.”
“Of course, I think it does. I think any human interaction with them is probably going to have a positive influence on your perception of them.”
“No. I’m more concerned about how they feel about issues.”
“No. I think if you know enough about the candidate and their views, then I don’t think there is any need to meet them in person.”
