For sure, it’s definitely easy to fall in love with the incumbent politician. A perfect example of that being Michael Bloomberg, two-time of New York City who in November of 2005 was re-elected by a record margin of 20%, not bad for a Republican mayor in a liberal city. Yet, for Bloomberg it was his name, experience and trustworthiness that made him appeal to a massive amount of voters. In other words, his incumbency put him at a huge advantage over any every contender and I don’t necessarily think that’s fair as incumbents are 95% more likely to be re-elected than their challengers. And in the case of Bloomberg (who’s already mega-rich), incumbents can also count on receiving 5 to 8 times more money in campaign contributions. Indeed, Bloomberg spent over $66 million on his campaign by late October 2005, and was projected to exceed the record of $74 million he spent on the previous election.
So if you’re a voter (and you damn well should be) and you feel the same way I do about incumbent bullies like Bloomberg, No More Incumbents could be the website or you. They provide and informative and comprehensive details on why we need to get rid of incumbents--so much so that not only is there site worth the time to check. but I would certainly put aside my Democrat loyalty to vote for No More Incumbents. And so should you, regardless of which political party you belong to.
