in reply to Please explain WHY you voted --

Down votes are one of the great mysteries of PM.

Numerous discussions have attempted explaining why nodes are being downvoted, from simple misunderstanding to butterfly-ballot problem through pure jealousy and random acts of hatred, and whether a donwvote should come with explanations, at least a message in the CB, or not. In truth downvotes are often semi-random and they are a fact of life on PM, as nicely said in this node.

On the subject you can also read:

[Corion]: Meh, stupid people are associated with every president
[Corion]: (or presidential candidate)
[Corion]: And if you only have two candidates, you can expect some of the stupid people to make the "right" choice by chance ;)
[erix]: I think it's a little worse this time :)
[Discipulus]: yes; even broken clock show the right time twice a day
