Who do the more educated vote for?
Which ever party benefits them most.
Doctors, lawyers, teachers, professors, those that recieve trickle down federal $ tend to vote left.
Wall Street, career military, engineers etc tend to vote right.
Everyone has forgotten about whats best the country and instead votes based on whats best for them. Which is why we will never reach an accord on gun control. The left wants everyone disarmed with the disallusion they and society will be safer, that criminals will know guns are illegal to use in crimes and there they wont use them. The Right fails to comprehend that to prevent loonies from obtaining guns you have to have a way to identify the loonies, and they have to have the gun industry and lobbyists stop influencing them.
