Representational Voting Case Study

Satisfactory Essays
In the first scenario, the Senate wanted to pass a bill that punish businesses or people who hired illegal immigrants. The Senators and the people of my city wanted me to vote in favor of it. My economy is dependent on those immigrants because they work for lower pay, and the bill would give immunity to illegal immigrants. I chose to vote for the bill because I thought everyone else wanted me to vote for it. It ended up being a negative decision. My decision to vote in favor of the bill cost me my approval ratings. I underestimated the people of the businesses. This has to do with representational voting because I wanted to vote in favor of what my city’s citizens and what my constituents wanted to be passed. Clearly, that decision backfired.
