    Anshel baby, 800,000 people, maybe even more can't be wrong. He spoke for that many people. They say FDR had his weaknesses, too, and he was likely one of the most beloved of presidents in the twentieth cenury. People will still use his approach to Halachah mostly because Rabbi Ovadiah, started with the "basic text", and found ways adapt it to the Israeli reality, instead of using the views of rabbis, Ashkenazi, and Sepharadi, that might have been more stringent. It that is the case, then there might have been a "method" in his approach. Everyone accepted the Shulkan Arukh of the Maran, those that followed him, were "commentaries" the various rabbis and thier communities, valid for them, but maybe not for others, so . . . It makes sense to start at the beginning with "the same basic text", in the Land of Israel, no?
