I find some of your statements insulting, frankly. Minnesota and Massachusetts vote majority Democrat on a fairly consistent basis for a reason, and it isn't a lack of planning. That would be ... Georgia!

If a person assumes that people are generally good and that collective efforts can sometimes provides real benefits, I've found that person generally tends to lean Democrat.

If, on the other hand, a person believes that people are generally evil and must be controlled, and that collective efforts are little more than attempts to leverage control away from individuals, then I've found that person tends to lean towards the Republican party.

A bit simplistic, obviously, but I've also found many conservatives to be reactive rather than proactive.
Republicans give people more control over their lives. The only people who complain about that are the ones who will get less welfare, or their leaders who get to do the controlling.

Detroit and California are great examples of "proactive" ways!

He claimes to have the facts while we are wrong and then wants us to disprove him while he provides nothing.
Well you want to talk facts, but what have you brought to the table? Typical progressive arguing.

The long answer: Since there are few apartments in those counties, the residents much more likely to be homeowners and married than other areas. People who buy a home and get married to raise children tend to be more responsible and plan ahead compared to people who rent monthly and have babies out of wedlock. People who plan ahead in life are much more likely to vote Republican. People who wander through life aimlessly tend to vote Democrat, since that party offers a bigger safety net to people who have made mistakes.
So I rent an apartment because I don't want to keep living where I am now, that makes me irresponsible and a bad person?

Ahaha oh wow.

You understand what burden of proof is right? You surely understand how he and guess now you have this burden when you made the initial claim right?

Just shows you do not have the facts.

Basically, and guess what, YOU have to prove otherwise. He doesn't have to prove anything if you disagree BUT you do since you disagree with his unsupported assertion!

Apparently the burden of proof concept doesn't exist on this forum...interesting.

Well since I have never heard something so crazy in my life until that exact post, I am just going to assume that viewpoint is the extreme fringe minority. I pay taxes and everything, I bet that surprises him?
