Electorate Quotations

Romney is a classic case of re-invention. As governor of Massachusetts, he supported government-sponsored healthcare, was sympathetic to gay rights, and opposed harsh restrictions on abortion. After measuring the difference between the Massachusetts electorate and the national one to which he must now appeal, he has reversed those positions.
Stephen Kinzer

Democracy is a daring concept - a hope that we'll be best governed if all of us participate in the act of government.

Brian Eno

Jim Lehrer

In politics it is necessary either to betray one's country or the electorate. I prefer to betray the electorate.
Charles de Gaulle
