Generally I would not. I cannot speak for the majority of the AC.
However, I would give more support to someone who expressed
not only support, but, a cogent reason for their support showing
that they clearly understood the issues than
someone who merely expressed support.
If it is someone who I know (directly or through their list participation)
has a good understanding of the issues in general, their +1 might
carry more weight than someone else's unknown +1, but, that would
depend on the subtlety or complexity of the issues at hand.
