29. You are overlooking security
People are thinking about their security. SUV's, a house, etc. are only a couple delayed payments away from sleeping with relatives or under a bridge. The middle class economic security has been devestated. People are feeling their wages aren't keeping up with their debts and expenses. Even my die-hard Republican relatives who own guns/NRA members and would never dream of voting Democrat... can feel it.
