Voting poll

A corporation wants to buy your vote. They definitely want you to vote for the candidate that's opposing your candidate in the upcoming election. If you don't live in the States, then just apply this question to the next major election your country has. What's the absolute least amount of money/goods you'd accept for your vote? Be honest

A right-wing, religious group wants to buy your vote for a proposition that would defund Planned Parenthood and make owning contraception a misdemeanor, all to save those potentional fetuses that may have happened if people just weren't using protection. They know that people may be resistant to this point of view, and it's a good thing this group has such deep pockets. They'll pay you well for your vote. What's the least amount of money you'd accept for your vote? Be honest

A liberal group wants to get you to vote for a proposition that would make ALL drugs legal. Pot, meth, coke; it's all not only decriminalized, but also acceptable to own and purchase. If they don't have your vote, they'll buy it. What's the least amount you'd demand for your vote on this matter? Be honest

Tell the truth, I'd already vote yes for this proposition. They wouldn't even have to pay me
