Will voters sway the same way sans bribes?

Uttar Pradesh is heading for elections and we are in for yet another round of booth-capturing, politicians using money (to bribe voters), gangsters using muscle (to intimidate voters) and something exclusive to 2007 - Amitabh Bachchan appearing in television ads extolling the virtues of the state (or rather its government).

How would Indians react if political parties stopped bribing voters during elections? Well, the Chinese should show them the way.
