Pandering to small minorities is ALWAYS a bad trade. In the remote hope that maybe somehow a few of them might agree to vote for you in the next election, you give up much greater numbers of existing supporters who will definitely NOT vote for you in the next election because you have betrayed your own supporters. Your credibility may be reduced when you unexpectedly switch sides and your own campaign may find you disloyal to your own cause. Never pander to the enemy or your own troops may shoot you in the back.
