"Policy-based evidence", exactly.

That's what democracy means: decisions are meant to reflect the will of the masses, not "scientific evidence".

Some rosy-eyed idealogues seem to think that the masses should want evidence-based policy, thus happily resolving this apparent conflict. Unfortunately, as we all know,"should" and "will" are orthogonal.
