11. Well I have been able to ask a few

GOP and TP people I know that, on the surface you can't imagine what on earth they have in common with their party.
The 3 top answers:
Even though I am too poor to afford a gun, I won't vote for anyone who isn't a conservative because they will take the guns.
I got a crappy liberal education (up until I dropped out in 10th grade) that's why my kids will NEVER go to a public school.
The biggest common denominator is poorly educated folks who are scared to death over what they see on the news and can't read well enough to form their own opinions.
Of course the #1 reason people vote GOP - they are scared of becoming a minority.
