The general electorate would likely have a wide range of views that would generally shake out into most folks feeling that lying isn't really all that
bad (even though it may not be a conscious thought, as some folks have lied so much that its just part of the way they talk).
I think people tend to have a relative morality, and I think that the less intelligent people are the more likely they are to lack empathy adequately
with either others now, or their future self, to exhibit the kind of self control needed to not take their chance to "get even".
For a 2 good examples:
- Trump supporters who tend to enjoy anything Trump does, even the really bad and stupid stuff, just because it "pisses off liberals". These people
need to be purged from the national conversation.
- "Liberals"/"Progressives"/"Leftists" who lay into Trump for the simple fact that they believe that there is a score to settle due to a sliver of
our nation being racist and behaving racist, combined with a larger sliver of our nation who just loathed the man being lumped into the racist
category for good measure
Both ideologies have their idiots. And those idiots are screwing it up for all of us. The Founders didn't want common men to be allowed to vote
because they knew there were a lot of really short sighted morons in humanity. Its hard to argue with them.
