We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
RI, is too small, Jon. Personally, I think that my home state of Connecticut should merge with, let's see . . . how about Texas? That should take care of the lib majority and their RINO servants, too. We can cede Austin (love the town, itself, though) to Progressivestan to our north.
Interesting study and speculation. A possibility they missed: the closer one is to MSM outlets - NYC, LA, DC - the more the rich are equally divided among Dems and Reps.

I believe those rich folks in Connecticut voting Democrat are what we lovingly refer to as "Limousine Liberals" here in the Midwest. They vote against their apparent interests out of guilt over having acquired/inherited great wealth through preferential positioning in life.
