Who cares is such a simple phrase. Of course here I am dating myself, because this phase has been superseded by the even more enlighten colloquialisms like “whatever” and the ever poignant “meh”. Still on some level we really want to know who really cares. However this isn’t just some random expression, it can in fact change the course of a nation. In the 2012 exit polling a full 21% of the people (mostly Democrats) believe that a candidate who cares about them was the deciding factor in their vote.
