15. I think it is lack of really watching what is going on
I grew up in a GOP family so just voted that way for years. I had many children to keep my mind off who was in Office also. Yet I still know people who stayed with the party as they had always been republicans. So I would say most is just lack of interesting in finding our what is really going on. Heck the President lies left and right so what do you think people are going to do when they hardly tune in?
