The Psychology of the Presidential Election


The Psychology of the Presidential Election

The presidential debates of last week sparked a lot of dialogue.  Romney won.  Obama lost.  Obama looked tired and was passive.  Romney was presidential and assertive.  Romney viewers felt they won and basked in the supposed victory and Obama viewers digested the bitter taste of alleged defeat.  Apparently: One team won.  One team lost.  The analysis to follow is not about politics or the meat of the campaign.  It’s not about the economy or the job rate or Obamacare.  Rather, it’s about the psychology of how people get entrenched in staunchly affiliating themselves with one side.  How does that happen? What does it mean?  How does it shape the person and this country?
