I hear what you are saying but I think you are forgetting or discounting our older senior citizens. The huge group of people who do not use computers, no email at all, but read every piece of mail they receive and take it seriously because back in their day mail was a serious thing. The huge group who were bilked out of millions (perhaps billions) by corrupt Televangelical preachers like Jim Bakker, Jim Swaggert, etc. I'm talking about people who are not on computers, who don't know what spam or phishing is. They are prefectly intelligent but not sophisticated in terms of the current ways to influence people and steal their loyalty, money, etc. I know for a fact that, some of them at least, read every piece of mail and take it to heart.Originally Posted by Tobi;4095261;
Furthermore, when it comes to Palin, many of her fans are avid and I bet tons of them think they are showing her support by voting for her kid. They think Bristol's failure would disappoint Sarah so they don't want that to happen. Who can blame them?
