Engaging in an inquiry as to how other people will vote, or whether he has the money to convince people in sufficient numbers to support him amounts to abandoning your inalienable personal right to cast your vote according to your conscience.
There is no such thing as a wasted vote. We do not vote to be seen as having correctly predicted the winner. This will amount to turning the exercise into a game. It is much more serious that that. So serious that I cannot imagine why anybody will contemplate voting for someone they detested or thought unsuitable simply because others appear to be swayed his way.
The matter is really so simple but it is amazing how most people misunderstand the concept. It is also unhelpful to stay away because you have calculated that your candidate will not win or the process will be rigged against him. Unhelpful and wrong! it is your right to have a say and in an election you can only have your say through your vote. The fact that others may not agree with you does not mean you should not have your say or worse still that you should abandon your say and adopt what others are saying. It is like forsaking your certificate of ‘personal' sovereignty!
