Why do ppl in the rural areas vote for the monkey?

Hicks are stupid? Lesser educated?

Just a guess, but they don't recieve the news outlets that the rest of the larger cities do. When you are limited to a cow and a one channel satellite hookup, it's a wonder you don't vote for Dale Earnhardt JR.

I'm BACK & SINGLE. So lock up all the hotties!

Because people in urban areas are more highly evolved!

Seriously, hasn't this been beaten to death? I mean, they call it the "bible belt" for a reason, right? Bush and the Republicans appeal more to certain Christians... among other reaons, I imagine.

i would assume just the different values that those living in urban areas have as opposed to those in rural areas, and the two men up for president clearly represent the two extremes of those values.

Kerry represents all the values or urbanites - those that are more modern, and concerned about todays issues and the 21st century.
Bush represents all the values of those rural living folk, those that are stereotypically more christian and have older-day values.

But that's just my take on it, and i'm relatively a novice to us politics...being someone from australia ....that's just the impression i've gotten from watching the coverage of the election today for about 4-5 hours....

It would appear that these apparently "older-day values" are still Modern day values, based on the election result.

The Democrats ran the wrong person, people wanted to vote against Bush, but Kerry just didn't appeal to enough people. If he'd been a little more Hawkish, he might have captured more people.

If you are trying to say that people from the District of Columbia and New York are more highly educated therefore voted for Bush, you are wrong. The majority of D.C. is made up of poor, inner-city minorities. The politicians don't live in D.C., they all come from rich yuppie neighborhoods such as Georgetown. Same goes for New York as well.

azarenka - pavlyuchenkova - li - jankovic
garcia - bencic - paszek - rus - kanepi - kuznetsova - stephens
bouchard - karatantcheva - larcher de brito - voegele - lim - mladenovic

mary pierce - forever #1
vaidisova - kournikova - golovin - henin
the boys - federer - gasquet - del potro - haase - nishikori

You know, this has been bothering me all day long... How can the Republicans be the party of the rich AND the party of the uneducated at the same time?

I always thought the Democratic party was supposed to be the party of the poor, including inner cities, minorities, etc... How does that jive with your theory that the Republican supporters are uneducated?

BTW... I voted for Bush and I was Valedictorian of my High School class, and graduated summa cum laude in both my undergraduate and graduate college studies.

I think they should have gone with Lieberman.

Def agree the argument people have been making is completely inaccurate
