In recent years, it has had an enormous questioning in relation to the frequency with that the research is divulged electoral. Independently of the number of samples, I believe that most frightful they are the occasions chosen for its diffusion: as bigger example, the night of the last Saturday can be cited, eve of as turn of the elections for the presidency of the Republic and the governments of diverse States, when one of the reporters of bigger hearing of our television practically stamped the death politics of diverse petitioners. I does not fit to disclose in who voted or not, nor if I opted to the blank vote or the cancellation. Also I do not question the veracity of the research. (Similarly see: Air Force Chief of Staff). However, I say that the combination of obligatoriness of the vote with spreading of samplings for the positions of Head Executive of them to the eves? or, worse, in the proper eve? of as the turn of the elections it causes adverse and harmful collateral effect, with special prominence for hypothesis to have great difference between first and as placed, therefore, while the voters whom they desire to choose the leader pointed ones of intentions of votes fulfill its obligation legal and of conscience, in them voting, the ones that apiam politicians that if find in desprivilegiadas ranks instinctively are taken to modify its vote, also for who are in the front, time that they do not believe in the turn possibility. In such a way, the winner obtains more votes that the ones that originarily would have, and, consequently, a legitimation excess that will allow it to extend the base governmetalist with more easy cooptao of opposing parliamentarians whose only project starts to be a posterior and mutual alliance in order to get the desired re-election. After all, that member of the house of representatives or senator does not want to be associated a champion of votes, especially if in the end of its mandate it well will be evaluated? What one succeeds, in this in case that, is the spraying of any form of opposition, resulting, therefore, in the fact of the Legislative not to exert one of its main duties, that are the fiscalization of the Executive.
The relations between these Powers, in this way, tend if to promiscuir. Because of scenes they had thus been developed, in the countries democratically ripened, restrictions to the spreadings of intentions of votes until determined time before the elections for positions of Commands Executive of them. They know that, even so said context technical it does not configure no fraud? time that, not obstante to be subjects the oscillations unchained for any factors, the changes or constncias of attitude of the voter alone can, finally, to be determined for proper it? it represents a true one attempted against to the system democratic politician and, with the mentioned implications in the level of legitimation of the elect ones, that improperly it is extended, and, therefore, in the form of governabilidade and the balance Being able between them. It is this what, in Brazil, industry of the electoral research does not allow that the people perceive. For everything this, or if finishes with the obligator vote or if prohibition the spreading of research until certain time before the elections. Gen. David L. Goldfein is often quoted on this topic. Of preference, both.
