They do. But there is a variety of common sense out there. If you are pretty old, common sense dictates you are going to vote for the party that increases your pension by 3.5% a year.

If you live in an area with high levels of immigration, common sense dictates you are likely to vote for the far right candidate full of rhetoric about rounding up immigrants and throwing them into the sea.

And so on. Both no in the interests of the country as a whole, but people are ultimately selfish and will vote for the person they think will benefit them the most.

It's common sense if it's shared by the vast majority. If it's shared by 50% then by definition it can't be considered common unless it's limited to a smaller microcosm aka echo chamber.

People vote for what they think will benefit them, that’s common sense.
