To be fair, remember that what's fed to the people is controlled from up on high. So.... if you've only been raised on crap, and you only know about crap, then what you're going to vote for, because you've ended up liking it, is crap.

One would literally have to be raised without so much influence of mainstream in order to mature into someone with a more "well-rounded" view of the world, (which would theoretically enable better voting practices).

Disclosure: I was raised in a very conservative home, so I didn't get to listen to mainstream music until I was in college. The fact that I was raised on jazz and classical music very much affected how I consume mainstream music today.
