    First, the good: this book will make abundantly clear that the idea of voters carefully and rationally looking at issues and choosing parties and candidates accordingly is completely wrong.

    This isn't entirely surprising, but the authors do a good job of showing how much of democratic thought is based on this unrealistic ideal.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    They show that retrospective voting is only based on short term economic conditions before an election.

    This seems like it is incompatible with their theory, unless voters randomly decide which events should be seen as something the government should be punished for.
