[hlpsosvc] hold your nose and vote

the 2016 Presidential election was largely between Hold Your Nose And Vote For Trump versus Hold Your Nose And Vote For Clinton.

Hold Your Nose And Vote For Trump won.

under what conditions does someone disgusted with even their preferred candidate choose to vote?  under what conditions do they choose not to vote?  does one party have an advantage over the other in this regard?

perhaps the party of sleazy rich people, crooks, and not-upstanding people is more likely to retain voters who are not disgusted by disgust.

a lot of campaigning was aimed at people on the fence whether to vote or not: they weren't deciding who to vote for; they were deciding whether to vote at all.
