There’s lots of range in pools of candidates. There are probably cases where election after election, nobody thinks the candidates are plain awful, but they still have clear preferences. Say a co-op was electing board members and everyone in the community overall gets along. Nobody wants to mark anyone “bad”, but they could still “oppose” and that’s strong enough language that they would still hesitate to use it too strategically.
PAD seems to have better labeling to me.
What to make of this? Is there a reason my proposed support/oppose labeling wouldn’t be superior in every way?
