In reading the Nov. 16 editorial “More Romney contempt,” I came to a screeching halt on The Post’s view that “voters generally make decisions based on a complex assessment of their own interests and what they think is good for the country.” Let me see if I can understand this complexity: One guy is giving me a bunch of free stuff, the other guy might take away some of the free stuff. How should I decide? Oh, what a quandary.

You greatly overestimate the decision processes of the average voter.
