Hello Bloggers - It's one of my favorite questions, so I'll ask it again: why do people still vote Republican (what they like to call conservative) after such horribly mismanaged governance?
Gawker.com (http://gawker.com/5052329/scientists-explain-why-people-vote-for-republicans) and the LA Times (http://www.latimes.com/news/politics/la-sci-politics19-2008sep19,0,3434467.story) chime in on the possibilities.
The Gawker article is research from Rice University that asks questions like "why are conservatives scared a lot" and "why do they refuse to believe facts." The LA Times article is derived from research conducted at many universities, and includes lots of data about the differences between liberals and conservatives. They are both interesting. Enjoy!
