And the least educated are also the most churched, and of the fundamentalist variety. And your point is?

Being Baptist makes you "more religious"? Looks like religion is spread all over the US, not just in the south.

I'm sure on many youtube videos, you can find lower class, less educated, welfare whites who voted for Romney too. Hell, let me go on my facebook and look up old highschool classmates who were white conservatives who never went to college and got pregnant at 19 and we're shouting for a Romney win and pouting when he lost.

Honey Boo Boo said she was for Obama, which I'm sure means her parents are for Obama and that's where she heard it. And her uncle is a "poodle" (gay), so I would say their family is pretty liberal. I'd say they voted for Obama.

I know some hillbillies in Missouri who voted for Obama too.

So why is Obama always saying he represents the poor ans uneducated that are victms and the repulbicans represent the rich and sucessful only?Why do these highly educated people not get off their duff and be provide to the national taxbase? I think perhaps one only has to look at each states and where Obama gets his votes and where Romney did. Bascially I don't see the smartest people i the room wntigmore welfare entitlements. Perhps i the OPs dreams they are democrats. Isn't wall Street still full of evil republicans who run the nation still?Isn't it the claim that the one per cent are evil republicans? No one is fool by sayig states with high popualtion and business base is popualted by epople for, just that stae. Op makes a fool of himself just posting such a ignorant article that makes such a claim.

Nope...bone up on some education. Doesn't this map for 2011 (latest complete year) Welfare Expenditure look eerily similar to the 2012 Electoral Map. For the most part (not all) Dark blue for Obama = Dark blue for Welfare Spend.

Um, no they didn't. But don't let the facts stand in your way. They supported Obama. Because he WILL take care of them.

Hey, thanks for posting that. I am sick of the ridiculous statements the liberals make. I just looked up my state, a very red state, on your map and it is one of the very lowest in welfare spending. So much for the libs' assertion that the red states are welfare states.
