  •  I think the religion variable (6+ / 0-)

    would absolutely tie in here, at least on the Dem vs. Rep. support (broadening what was looked at above for Obama support)

    I suspect there's a sort of "hardening of the [brain] arteries" effect that comes into play for many hard-core religious zealots, and they lose a flexibility of seeing and perception of the world around them.

    That's why so many Christian fundamentalists are conservative. Which is very ironic, given what a socialist Jesus was.

    Democrats promote the Common good. Republicans promote Corporate greed.

    •  I like my Unitarian Universalist liberal (4+ / 0-)

      Congregation with this mission statement:

      We are a liberal religious community that opens minds, fills hearts, and transforms lives. We work for peace, equality, a healthy earth, and an end to poverty.
       The minister marches in the local gay pride parade and encourages the congregation to join him.  "God" is rarely mentioned and atheists are welcome.

      We're ALL better off when we're ALL better off!
