The wide variety of quotes available makes it possible to find a quote to suit your needs. You’ve likely heard some of the Voters Quotes before, but that’s because they truly are great.
I certainly didn’t wake up one morning and forget to register The Reality Party. Far from it. The Electoral Commission didn’t run checks thoroughly before giving us the green light in March 2014, and then months later suddenly wanted to question our party name when it came to light that we might confuse voters.
Many voters think about the makeup of the Supreme Court when they are choosing a president. The justices deal not only with constitutional issues but also with social issues that were unknown to the founding fathers who wrote the Constitution more than 200 years ago.

Voters have a responsibility to make a judgment with whatever facts are available on Election Day.
Republicans need to stop complaining about blacks voting over 90% for Democrats. If they’re not willing to compete in those neighborhoods, they will keep losing those voters.

They reality is that we have 70% of our voters use a punch card system that I tried to change and that bipartisan resistance in the legislature stopped.
I think there’s a disconnect between political leaders and young voters around a lot of things related to the private sector. For example, a lot of politicians continue to attack big banks. While I’m not a defender of big banks, my sense is younger voters have had generally pretty good experiences with banks.
I filed the ethics complaint against Tom DeLay not because I’m a Democrat and he’s a Republican or even because he drew me out of my congressional seat but because he engaged in corruption to further his plans to disenfranchise voters in Texas.

They view massive immigration as a massive infusion of potential voters for the Democratic Party, and therefore will do nothing, absolutely nothing to stop that flow of legal or illegal entrance into the country.
Christie led the way – with a bulldozer. The governor is blunt, brash, and self-consciously authentic, the antithesis to what turns off today‘s voters: flip-flopping politicians who speak in poll-tested platitudes. Yes, he’s the anti-Romney.
I want to be part of Major League Baseball‘s Hall of Fame, but I don’t want to be part of the kind of Hall of Fame that’s based on voters’ beliefs and assumptions.

Perhaps the reason Trump voters are so frequently the subject of caricature is that they so frequently conform to type.
Of course, the genesis of a good portion of the gridlock in Congress does not reside in Congress itself. Ultimate reform will require each of us, as voters and Americans, to take a long look in the mirror, because in many ways, our representatives in Washington reflect the people who have sent them there.
The very purpose of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution is to protect minority rights against majority voters.

The way Obama voters and non-Obama voters deal with unemployment are a very different.
When people note that more and more voters are cutting their landline phones and that more and more people are refusing to pick up phone calls from numbers they don’t know, they are identifying problems that the polling industry has long struggled with and continue to try to adapt to.
The ballot box and the voters and how they pay attention and the decisions they make are really what should define term limits.

In 2008 all the stars aligned perfectly for Obama’s 6-point victory over John McCain. He was an inexperienced, untested neophyte, and successfully convinced enough voters to paint their own version of what hope-and-change was all about on the blank canvas he provided.
Allowing those who turn 18 by the general election the right to vote in primary elections will kick start voter education much earlier. And when people start voting at a younger age, they are more likely to become higher propensity voters and be more engaged in their communities.

At first it was interesting, we worked with the military to identify people susceptible to radicalization, but then Steve Bannon approached us and things changed. We renamed Cambridge Analytica, and we began to approach voters as much as potential terrorists.
The fact is that we as a party at the Republican National Committee registered 3.4 million new voters in the past two years and brought them into the political process. The president won by 3.5 million votes.
What unites Trump’s voters is a sense of alienation from America’s wealthy and powerful.
Unsurprisingly, the poll-takers don’t talk a lot in public about the ignorance of the electorate on political and public policy matters.

It was very important to my father-in-law that we didn’t feel like we deserted our base of voters.
Sometimes nationalism can be jingoistic – even fascistic – but it can also be a constructive impetus that helps to unify a nation. Those whose nationalist critique of parties finds resonance with masses of voters can acquire vast power. We can only hope that they know what to do with it.
Political ignorance helps explain Americans’ perpetual disappointment with politicians generally, and presidents especially, to whom voters unrealistically attribute abilities to control events.
The Democratic Party is on the move across the country. Voters are responding to our message of progress and fiscal responsibility.

No matter how many times the court shuts them down or how many Americans speak out to defend their rights, Republican politicians who stand to gain from suppressing voters won’t back down. They’ll only change their tactics.

In the post-Watergate atmosphere of 1975 and 1976, the just-plain-folks personalities of both Ford and Carter seemed the perfect antidote to Nixon’s arrogant, isolated presidency. But as alert history-minded readers know, Ford and Carter were both rebuffed by voters in their efforts to hold on to the presidency.
Barack Obama may have found the answer to his biggest rhetorical challenge: When millions of voters are unemployed or underemployed, how does a president simultaneously sound realistic and optimistic?
You can make tough decisions that I believe voters for years have asked us to do.
As a historian, I’m sceptical about conspiracy theories because the world is far too complicated to be managed by a few billionaires drinking scotch behind some closed doors. But I do think that the voters are correct in sensing that they’re really losing power. And in reaction, they give the system an angry kick.
I do think voters do take into consideration – particularly early state voters – take into consideration a wide range of factors, including electability, and they know that part of electability is the total package that you’re presenting.
Why are we outsourcing millions of high-paying jobs to China and India? Why don’t we secure the border and stop the country from being flooded with millions of illegal immigrants? These are important questions on the mind of middle class voters all over America.

Voters don’t have to love him, Romney advisers say, but they will respect him.
Our representative democracy is not working because the Congress that is supposed to represent the voters does not respond to their needs. I believe the chief reason for this is that it is ruled by a small group of old men.
Committed partisans are generally the most knowledgeable voters, independents the least. And the more political knowledge people have, the more apt they are to discuss politics with people who agree with, and reinforce, them.
And American voters understand that if we want to keep fighting to move in the new – in a new direction, we’ve got a long way to go. And we need to make sure we continue with Democrats being in the majority.

A president and a party that can provide insurance for 31 million more Americans is far preferable to most voters than a party that only says, ‘No.’

The way to connect with voters on the plan is to simply give the facts. Fifty per cent of taxpayers pay 97 per cent of the taxes. By most people’s standards, that’s already fair.

You can’t consider a president weak because he will have a Congress that Mexican voters have wanted to be co-responsible in the decisions to be taken… It will be through the leadership that I will exercise that we will be able to build the agreements in Congress.
By all means, let’s have free trade and no trade barriers and a common market. But where did it all suddenly become about our own economic and political destiny being surrendered to Brussels with agendas that arguably have very little to do with the interests of the British people and British voters?

The victor will be the one who gets the most voters out.
Voters quickly forget what a man says.

Voters, whatever their political views, should rise up against politicians who want to dilute the Bill of Rights to perpetuate their tenure in office.
