look up any word, like full-donald:
What Republicans call political cost/benefit analysis. If a politician avoids political calculus on a policy or prospective bill or movement,

it means that it is unpopular. If a politician embraces political calculus, it means that it is popular.
Marco Rubio said he avoided political calculus on immigration reform because he knew his party was against it but thought the country
was for it. Double think!
