There’s just one problem. Only magenta is a truly neutral balance between red and blue; any other shade of purple leans towards red or blue. That’s partly why a TV reporter or newscaster wearing purple might be secretly supporting the Dems or GOPs with their choice of a heliotrope tie or thistle-colored dress. Purple might have a reputation for neutrality, but just by using a simple color picker app when you pick out your outfit, it can also be used to hide a person’s true political leanings in plain sight!
The lesson? Don’t fall for the purple conspiracy. If TV reporters really wanted to be neutral, they’d start wearing gray. Wearing purple on Election Day just means you’ve got something to hide.
