    Why has Politics gone down to gutter level?

    This is more or less a common phenomena across the globe today, especially during the elections.
    Is it owing to increased public awareness?
    Desperation may be? Or
    Is it cuz something like charismatic leadership is becoming obsolete now?

    The level of politics in a more or less free society, usually reflects the moral state of the people who support them, so sadly it reflects a declining morality in the nation they serve.

      True that, I can totally relate to it. Part of it is what we call appeasement politics

    Have you seen the videos of physical fist fights in the South Korean legislature?
    Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire in the 1800s, married to leader in the Whig Party in the UK and had an affair with the Prime Minister.
    Rod Blagojevich trying to sell Obama's Senate seat to the highest bidder.
    Rotherham rape scandal in the UK, where police thought it worse to be called racist than go after Pakistani Muslim gangs that groomed, gang raped and then prostituted over 1400 underaged white girls from a poor community ... then they tried to punish teachers and parents who tried to intervene or reported assaults to protect their own reputations.

      Here in India Secularism & Democracy are most abused political terms that allow politicians to spit venom and stoop to new lows everyday.
