    Sexism & Racism. This does not only apply to white men. Women & POCs can be sexist & racist too. Hillary had a slogan "I'm with her" as she expected all women to vote for her for sharing the same genitals. Obama expected most black people to vote for him because of his skin color.

    Because identity politics is easier than actually doing your research to come to an informed decision.

    There's no such thing as race.

    Some people feel that women and/or coloured people are underrepresented in parlament, and vote to correct that.

    Some people are sexist or racist, and vote accordingly

    Identity politics takes about two seconds to understand ("I like people like me, and I dislike people not like me"), whereas understanding actual politics requires a modicum of attention and careful thought.

    What we're seeing is the result of generations of being told that it's our civic duty to vote, with no emphasis put on understanding the issues or knowing what we're voting for.
