In observing voting patterns, could it be that there is a high level of gullibility in the blue states? For example, where issues show that government has wasted money and worsened a problem (i.e., healthcare), voters actually believe that government will efficiently solve the very problem that it created?

Could it be that there is a lower level of intelligence that prevails in these states, where people do not have a sense of causation or the facility of logic to understand that the welfare state further weakens minds and personal empowerment?

Could it be that major media outlets actually prefer locating in these weak-minded states, so that their biased political views go "unnoticed" and unchallenged?

I would say that every state has its share of party hardliners.
They also have their share of folks who actually believe that elected reps should be representing the voter first last and always.
Not their party, not the lobbyists, and damn sure not a collective of friends and campaign donors.

Wouldn't you think a room full of constituents would take over this guy's little show------"his town hall meeting?"

Democrat arrogance unparalleled......

Hope the constituents will not continue in submissive ignorance.....YouTube - Baron Hill (IN-09): This Is My Town Hall Meeting. I Set the Rules.

I think a lot is apathy. They don't care to look at the past or details or question and ask for accountability. IMO I think they just vote on who makes the best promises.

A point of sheer nonsense on your part that 100% contradicts your own OP.

Oh, and don't forget a little thing called US History.

As an example..just look at last years votes and see who got re-elected that voted FOR that massive bailout bill. Americans were overwhelmingly saying NO and they voted YES anyway. One month later it was all forgotten.
