People Aren't Shy When it Comes to Sharing Their Opinions

I have been hearing from folks about who they are voting for and why. There seems like there used to be a time when people wanted to keep that information private. Noadays, people don't mind telling you who they're voting for whether you want to hear about it or not. People are definitely not shy about sharing their opinions. Obviously, this way of thinking doesn't apply to everyone.
