Well, sure. Pander to the village is the only way to survive. That said, his pandering includes an open invitation to kill him, which I find odd.
The possibilities would seem to be:
(1) Cbear is being 100% truthful. (If this is the case he's literally given up on winning the game as an independent)
(2) Cbear is holding something back and gains something by surviving even just through today, or...
(3) Cbear is holding something back and benefits in some way by being killed. (He's invitation to kill him is just shy of requesting to be killed, I think)
Does anyone really believe (1)?
