I guess it depends on how important you think fundamental freedoms are.
It has nothing to do with that if some people need to be cajoled or catered to in order to vote. Both are trying to take advantage.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
