No, the Indian voters are not fools but they have now seems to be learning the lesson of opting for the right candidates or else the country is endangered to be collapsing due to the corrupt. The voters are now rising to the need of the ouster of these corrupt politicians which should be the case the upcoming National elections which may see a complete change of Indian polity for the betterment of all citizens!!

I think the problem arises by the sheer number of voters. And seriously what options do the Indian voters have? To pick the least rotten of all the rotten tomatoes? Sorry, I am drifting from your question. No the Indian voter is not a fool, there is always anti incumbency vote, the best example of which can be seen in the UP assembly elections in the last 4-5 elections. In Gujarat assembly elections, where it is not reflected because the opposition has not been able to organize itself and show as a better option. What is noticeable trend now is that people are getting tired of Congress and family politics. And it was most noticeable in the recent UP assembly elections where the family lost the majority of the seats in their own constituency. Segments of Congress like Jagan Reddy in AP, Mamata in WB, Naveen Patnaik son of a Congressman Biju Patnaik in Odisha, even NCP in Maharashtra, AIADMK of MGR a prominent Cong ally, now against it in TN, even Nitish of JDU in Bihar may jump in this ...more

Yes because their innocence plays at the back yard of their ignorance ..........they are easily duped by those who wears khadi and who always comes in the guise of the unqualified politician, begging at their door with folded hands, a hypocritical smile on his smug face asking for vote. ............other part is no innocence but fear only ....... threatened by the muscle men of those corrupt politicians to remain at the comfort zone ......and third category are good citizens like us , who elect these corrupt politicians by NOT casting our votes
