Kudos will be given to the BEST solution posted BEFORE the OA is revealed

Choice E seems to be the best choice. when in poll
What if supporters of Kenner didn't vote him as much as supporters of muratori?

Keypoint = “JUST BEFORE ELECTIONS K > M”.But M still won.

A-Not similar views.Does not prove m wins
B-K was in the elected office.No effect on M winning.If anything shows why K should win as he is the incumbent
C-In the year leading up to the election = not correct.we are worried with just before the elections
D-Six months before.Irrelevant.What happened just before is the relevant part
E-CORRECT.considering important implies they are more likely to vote than supports of K

E was my choice also. Was looking for an answer that would effect voter choice significantly. If M voters deem the election most important - perhaps they would be driven to come out in droves to ensure M wins.

Good job redskull1 for your post. You have earned the Kudos for this post! LilRan22, you had a decent explanation, but Redskull's full explanation of all the choices made him the winner.

If anyone has further questions, please ask!

If someone describes election as important, does it make him/her more likely to vote in election? I think there is further assumption required for Option E to be the answer. Can somebody please help?

marvel3001, if something is more important, there is a greater chance it'll get done. I think this applies to everyone (but could be a further assumption). That said, (E) is the best choice given the other choices. All others are completely out of scope, leaving us with only one legitimate answer
