Thinking out loud about the mythical “popular” support for Putin

Мысли вслух о мифической "всенародной" поддержке Путина

Do not rush to spit in my address, dear, “candidates” and “zaputintsy” I’m not going to dispute the fact that Vladimir Putin is the most popular person in the Russian Federation, a policy which has been supported by millions of Russian citizens.

This challenge can only be sick in the head man. But the rush to the two extremes, arguing, for example, “ehovtsev” that support real GDP is 17% and believe Lewandowski 83%, I won’t.

As they say in such cases, the truth lies somewhere in the middle: 17 + 83 = 100, divide by 2 and get 50%. This value is much closer to the truth. In my estimation, Putin’s popularity in Russia is in the range of 40-50%, but not more.

Any person who at least once heard about such Sciences as statistics and logic, will agree with the statement that in a more or less democratic society cannot support any politician in 80-99%.

The high level of such support can be either in kindergarten or in an authoritarian state. That is, the population must be either entirely dumb or brainwashed by propaganda, or neutral-intimidated in the moral and physical planes.

I have repeatedly referred to percent of administrative resources, which the scientists calculated for the countries of Western democracy (3-5%) and Russia (15%). However, you need to keep in mind that these figures refer to the reign of EBNA drunk. Currently, the situation in Russia in this respect has deteriorated significantly…

For example, on our website set of “popular support” Vladimir Putin “democratically” appointed moderator in the community “Policy”, a former political officer of the Soviet army Shura of Arrow, bounces any article containing criticism of GDP, preferring the slogan-publications – “hail Putin!” and “I love Putin!” In this case, we are talking about creation of already not 83%, and 100% support for the current government in Russia…

In confirmation of the impossibility of transcendental support above 80% will give a few examples.

For example, Adolf Hitler, in the 30-ies legitimately came to power in Germany, never failed in three elections to win the support of the majority of German voters, despite the use of physical violence against their political opponents. And only after the legal elimination of political parties-opponents, the Nazis were able to achieve “popular” support for their Fuhrer…

I have never participated in any of the Ukrainian elections since 1991, but have closely followed their progress. Despite the fact that the population of Krivoy Rog in the majority, if not Pro-Russian, Pro-Communist certainly, no “Party of regions” nor the CPU never scored together more than 60% of the vote…

Despite the label, “fascist state”, hung Russian propaganda Ukraine, the Ukrainian “fascists” is not able to knock out social surveys at least 70% support from the population, not to mention sky-high 83%…

For this reason, the result of the referendum in Crimea (2014) might not be equal to 96.77 per cent, carried it without the active intervention of a stakeholder (in addition, the complete removal of any opponents). No, the majority of Crimeans would have voted for joining Russia! But it would not be mythical 96,77%, and a much more modest 50-60%…

So it would be logic and statistics, and all the rest – from the evil…

The most offensive (and terrible for the state) consists of these games in popularity in that crucial moment in the life of the country not a single individual of the 90% crowd support for the current government will not protect her.

Remember 99.9% of the support of the Soviet people, the CPSU policy: almost 300 million Soviet citizens, of which 20 million were Communists, not just silently watched the murder of the Country Councils but also in their bulk helped him…

Mythical support negates the moral and physical power of the nation – each amuses himself with the thought that a politician, whom he trusts, will be able to take the right decision in favor of the wellbeing and prosperity of the state.

Such high hopes cause the first error of the imaginary “popular choice” can lead to the collapse of the state, as happened in 1991 with the Soviet Union…
