No, I have not let party affiliation affect me in the past (Over some 40 plus years)because I voted for the candidate and the person, not some party that they are associated with...until things start to change, I am not sure that I could do that any more. The Republicans have a lot to answer for with their recent history in the Trump era. Just my humble opinion.
And I am Lily white, so there goes the theory that people will only vote race.

That's another one, the environment. Trump's Environmental Polluting Agency is becoming a plague on the nation at the behest of the GOP. I don't see anyway this white would support that.

If you have been voting for 40 plus years, it's statistically unlikely you will still be voting in 20, so that diminishes the value of your anecdata.

But you indirectly support it by not opposing open borders leading to continuous population growth=pollution.

They are still on the earth and that has nothing to do with the environmental destruction caused by Trump's EPA.

Yes, I will be 81, so more than likely I will be dead (especially considering the declining Mortality rate in America the last few years and the possible ill effects of Global warming on the health) but I have had multiple ancestors who had write ups in the papers that lived to be over 100.


Statistically unlikely or not, My Mother is in her eighties and she still manages to get out and vote.

So you never know.

Hahha so blame the immigrants for pollution while Trump's Environmental Polluting Agency is removing every environmental protection they can at record speed? Those darn immigrants!

Here's my anecdata:

I am an upper middle class urban white with a graduate degree in my late 30s, so based on my demographic profile I should be pulling the blue lever with great devotion every two years.

Well, something funny happened on the way to the polling booth. And most of it had to do with being demonized by the left.

Hahha okay, well this college educated white does not see the demonization. I find the white victimhood laughable so everyone is going to have their own perception. So much for the racial voting bloc.
