I've noticed in many discussions that a lot of Americans on this site choose to abstain from voting. If you are one of these, and since I cannot vote in a US election even though I am indirectly affected by living on planet Earth, as a hypothetical question: How much would you charge me to buy your vote?

Specifically, how much would you charge if I asked you to vote Republican? How much for a Democrat vote?

-------

Please don't look at other answers before you provide a sum as this will give you a cognitive bias called Anchoring:

"During normal decision-making, anchoring occurs when individuals overly rely on a specific piece of information to govern their thought-process. Once the anchor is set, there is a bias toward adjusting or interpreting other information to reflect the "anchored" information. Through this cognitive bias, the first information learned about a subject can affect future decision-making and information analysis."

If i were American, i would vote Democrat for $200, Republican $3,000

But i usually vote for the candidate that presents the best arguments and evidence for his position or to why vote for him. That way i can help create a future for better thinking politicians that might be inclined to produce a better thinking population. :)

100 million dollars and you can have my vote.

$1,000,000,000 to vote Republican

$100 to vote Democrat

You don't get to dictate terms. You either sell or not. :)
