Sometimes when your dilemna involves choices between bad choices and bad choices you make the one most available.

IMO the writing this season was poorly done on many many counts. We spent way too much time devloping a character and then killing her off.
still, the only sign available to them that shows their dear leader has gone bonkers is from the words of a few, composed of a whole group of enemies (rick team), 2 recently joined members (tyrese and his sister), and 1 actual member (karen). that's only enough to get people interested, not immediately change sides, because remember they have been shown only 1 side of the coin for a long long time. also at that point, barring those same words, the residents have no reason to believe the governor wouldn't come back real soon with those same firearms, so that wasn't supposed to be an issue at least initially when deciding to stay or leave, until after some time has passed. you're right that neither choice is good, but the show has not "shown" that the residents fully know that. karen for sure knows, tyrese and sasha have reason to trust her after seeing andrea, but the rest of the folks were never shown any reason to go along. they just wrapped it up with a montage.

i suddenly feel walking dead's lack of realism is actually already a big step forward for hollywood.
