  •  His votes come primarily from two places: (7+ / 0-)

    all of the retirement communities like Sun City (I don't think people realize how big they are) and the rural parts of the county. The Arizona Capitol Times ran a story a few weeks ago that showed he gets very few votes in central Phoenix and most other urban areas. Better yet, the study showed that his popularity in the GOP suburbs is on the wane.

    Years ago I worked on some school bond issues for districts that include Sun City and similar communities. It's nearly impossible to get them passed because these places literally bus folks to the polls to vote no. Over and over you'd hear, "I put my kid through school in Michigan, why am I paying here?" Dumbshits, who put you through school?! Probably someone you didn't know, probably someone who didn't even have children, probably someone who just moved to town whose kids were grown and gone.
