    Early grumblings in a government’s first term

    Smart politicians pay heed to early disenchantment from voters. Why: because to be forewarned is to be forearmed Voter grumbling and voter discontentment at specific matters usually marks the beginning of political downturn for governments. Public disgruntlement can be diverted. But it is extremely difficult to change a negative narrative once it begins. When the […]
