As a child I was very marked by the phrase “the useful vote is only useful for those who receive it”. I never voted helpful. I never lent my vote to any calculation other than my belief. I admit, as in everything, that the maxim cannot be absolute. If I had to choose between two single candidacies, one Democratic and the other non-Democratic, as happened in Brazil, I would obviously vote for the Democratic candidacy, even if it did not belong to my political family. In Portugal, we are not experiencing a scenario of choice between the precipice and democracy. In these presidentials, the field of the democratic right has a face on Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa and the left is badly conditioned by his choices by an absurd useful vote in favor of second place.
