12. Thanks, davidgmills, for posting this as a thread. I had to be away...
...from DU yesterday, after I first posted this in the rBr discussion, so I didn't see your post. While I was away, I was traveling in my car and happened to hear the Ed Schultz Show, and on the Ed Schultz Show was a guest who was among some 30 people in Waynesville, NC, who had just been thrown out of their Baptist Church for not pledging support to Bush--one of the more shocking things I have heard of, in BushWorld . This is the sort of social and political climate that exists in many Republican areas today. And so, if you imagine how people like this must have felt at the polling place, it makes a lot of sense that they would be quite reluctant to tell a strange pollster that they had voted for Kerry.
