More Observations on MMP

I’d posted about conversations I’d had regarding MMP with some friends of mine. One opinion that I thought indicative was “I vote for the party anyway.” While politics junkies are more attuned to the particular candidates and are aware how Randy Hillier is a different kind of PC candidate than David Shiner, I suspect that a great many voters just pick the party they prefer anyway. If more people are just voting for the party anyway (anyone have stats on that? Greg?) MMP allows them to what they’d rather do anyway. In addition it may cause them to pay a bit more attention to the local candidates – since they can vote for their party and then see who might best represent their riding.
