Well, it is meant to be if a candidate is for/against an issue, you could not vote for them. Example, for many conservatives they couldn’t vote for a candidate that is pro-choice.Arthur Dent wrote:If single issue is taken to mean something that could break me from my general ideological inclinations, it has to be climate change. If Inslee's campaign about committing to climate action as the single top priority was a real possible outcome and not a gimmick, it'd be hard to argue against. If it means what to use as an ideological litmus test, it's Medicare for All.
Though you could take it to mean that if a candidate doesn’t have a clear plan to address X, you would not vote for them. So when I am hearing people say climate change, health care, or wealth inequality I am taking that to mean if the candidate doesn’t have a good framework of a plan to address, they won’t vite for them. Almost all of the dem candidates play at least lip service to these issues.
