This is too juicy to be buried in comments.
Xavier writes in the comments of the previous post, "I said before that there is a link between Republicans, Christianity, and Fox News. Let me go one step further, and this delves more into the realm of stereotypes, but there are a string of descriptors that appear to go together for a particularly large demographic of the states. Here goes:
Fox News watcher
Skeptical about what higher ed teaches youth
Traditional views of men and women [CP - I read "sexist views" here.]
Rural and/or affluent community member
Pro-war, guns, hunting
I'm not saying that there is any necessary relationship here and many people can fit some of the descriptors without fitting the others, for instance, I am white but not Republican. Yet, something's going on. Coincidence? Just a particular effect of socialization?"
Thoughts? An argument for or against this view?
