    I think part of the answer is brainwashing. People who actually lead very pinched, compromised lives get to identify with a privileged class of white, straight, wealthy males. Hence the appeal of reactionary politics. Alas for the RW, as the voting demographic inexorably changes, this advantage will slip away. Voters won't be as readily brainwashed. More will actually identify, for instance, with the poor people of color who waited for hours to vote in the last election.
