It's true. I really, really don't think I'll win. Here's why.
a) The other candidates do maths. People are stupid and assume that maths degree = good treasurer.
b) Jess Clempner is a second year. She was a frep. Her boyfriend is a fourth year (I think) and knows a ****load of people, plus he has been on a lot of committees and stuff. She now knows a lot of freshers, and all his friends.
c) Chris Smith (who clearly put no effort into his manifesto AND has broken about a zillion campaign rules such as campaigning on Facebook) is a lad. Lads will vote for him. He is also funny. People who don't care too much will vote for him. He is also a footballer. Most of the football teams will vote for him. Apparently in his hust he tried to play on the fact that he is from the same town as, and is similar to, our current treasurer.
d) I bet most people won't read the manifestos.
I really, REALLY want this and think I deserve it (definitely did the most research and work towards it and know what I'm talking about the most with it), but I really won't win. And it sucks.
