Pleading with the electorate often doesn’t work

I’m not sure how many people in Quebec are going to follow Charest’s warning/plea to please not elect a minority government. Using the argument that it would irretrievably harm Quebec’s ability to protect its identity and “badly weaken” its negotiating position with the rest of Canada is also a bit of a puzzler. Huh? How does a minority government cause a weakening of identity? And what exactly are you intending to negotiate about in the next 2 years, Mr. Charest?

Usually such pleas are futile, and end up hardening the hearts of the very electorate you’re trying to persuade. It also gives the look of desperation to your campaign.
