This, when Obama is basically "their" man and does everything Bush did, McCain would have, and Romney will do.
The only outlier I can think of is core racism. They cannot find any socially acceptable outlet for this fundamental racism and so they use any and every outlet to channel their hate, even when it is non-sensical or coompletely absurd.
Trailer tops, eh? Stereotype much? Of course, "stereotyping is not the same as racism." As long as it's white people you're stereotyping, or black Republicans. Try some black stereotypes and see how innocent everybody thinks they are. What's bad for the goose is bad for the gander.
But it's not surprising that racism is the only reason you can think of that working class people would not vote for a Democrat. Nevermind political philosophy or the argument over the role of government, no these working class voters are just stubborn kids on Christmas eve who don't want any presents because Santa Claus is black.
Yeah, that's a rational argument, grim.
More plausible explanation: lefties like yourself are quite visibly delusional, and a large number of sensible individuals are only too happy to avoid a ticket whose platform includes one or any of your insane legislative goals. They take one look, one whiff, one listen to your adolescent, evangelical ravings and very wisely decide they want no part of a party that has any place for your hysterical, new age drivel.
