    People don't base their political identity on policies; to the extent the two are related, it goes the other way, with people feeling more favorable to the policy preferences that go with their political identity.  Why else would low taxes and restrictions on abortion go together so closely, when they have no common underlying values?

        •  Wow, are you on the correct site? (0+ / 0-)

          You sound like my brother who is a very conservative republican who is more interested in scoring points than having a conversation.

          But that is fine, be an ass...after all this is the internet.
