  •  I have been asking this too (8+ / 0-)

    Never has the choice been so clear as to the policy issues and yet most of the people I know, including family via marriage and high school friends who are on or will soon be on Medicare, are voting for Romney.  When I ask why, the only answer I have gotten is they are voting against Obama. No, they will not tell me the real reasons because they know how I feel about racism. And yes, they are all white.  And some of them have a lot to lose like two rabid Rethug family members who are in their early 50's and are supporting two adult children under the age of 26, one of whom has a pre-existing medical condition.  It is shocking to me that they cannot refuse to connect the dots.  It is not like they are ignorant of the negative consequences to their own well being if Romney is elected.  They simply do not care and said they will take their chances rather than have Obama back in the White House.  I am not stupid.  To my mind, it can only be one thing.
