    Does Guilt Motivate Poor People To Vote Against Interests By Choosing the GOP?

     
    Why do poor people and those in the middle class, vote for Republicans?
    We certainly understand why many of the wealthy vote for the Corporate lobbying party, but for the rest to do so is like voting for the guy that would cut the rope they're hanging on.
    The rich vote their interests. Why don't the poor?
    Is it out of guilt? Do the middle class that support the GOP feel they've done something wrong and that the rich have done it all right?
    Or could it be simply that the policies of the GOP are designed to rig the game in favor of the rich?
    Can't wait to hear this rationale.
    The Guardian had a great article on this contradiction:
