Low Information Voters tend to vote conservative

and against their interests. That's why so many poor people vote republican in the GE's. They either don't know or don't grasp the effects of the fact that healthcare costs will continue to rise, insurance and drug companies will continue to rape us, Wall street will continue to rule the country, the death penalty will remain the law of the land, the prison industrial complex will continue to grow, fracking will go on, the minimum wage will stay at poverty level, TPP will depress wages and take decent jobs overseas, college will become even less affordable, our ridiculous (and murderous) intervention all through the middle east and latin america will grow, and it's very likely that Hillary will cut Social Security benefits.

I continue to be surprised at the pervasiveness and effect of propaganda and the politics of personality.
