I run into people all the time who think both parties are about the same, they both take corporate money, do favors for their buddies and so on. Most of them vote the way their parents did, if they vote at all, they became Republicans because their parents were Republicans, (or the other way around). My son is still sort of a Raiders fan even though we’ve never lived in CA, I started following them long ago because I liked the black uniforms and their rep for being mean. Davis did a lot of things through the years I didn’t like but I stuck with them, because I was a fan, and I think that’s alright. When it comes to public policy not so much; if you look around and think the rich have got it bad, vote Republican, if you think wages should be higher, people should have healthcare, and just maybe God forbid somebody might even get a vacation someday, then you will vote Democratic.
