The "Bubba" Vote ?
http://www.neteffex.com/chat/bubba.jpg ^ | November 9, 2004 | G.O.E.

Posted on 11/10/2004 6:55:39 PM PST by ricer1

States with more mobile homes as a percentage of total housing units voted predominately for Bush.


TOPICS: Constitution/Conservatism; Culture/Society; Government; News/Current Events; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: bubbavote; bush; bushvictory; elections; kerry; ruralvote; vote
A friend of mine (whom I'll refer to by his initials, G.O.E.) visited the U.S. Census website recently and saw the list of states, by order of mobile homes as a total of housing units. He was struck by the states near the top that voted for G.W. Bush. So he color-coded the states based on their vote results. The first graphic is a small image just to easily show the voting-color. The second image is a capture of his spreadsheet. I just wanted to post it here for discussion...




The last entry really isn't a state (D.C.) but was included in the census stats...

Do they have a category for most crack houses per capita?

I'd like to see that one.

I don't have a chart, but I'll bet that the states with the most crack whores voted Democrat.

I have driven through Bedford PA and there are a lot of mobile homes.

Does this mean that The Demonrat Party is the party of the rich?

Chances are that home owners (irrespective of the type of
home) tended to vote for Bush, and apartment/dorm/cell
dwellers tended to vote for Kerry.

Exceptions might include mansion owners.

Um... break it down by county and then add in the number of people living in housing projects... I would imagine things would pretty much even out.

In other words... it doesn't matter...

yes, but why not show how the precincts with the mobile homes voted? Perhaps because it will show they went predominantly for sKerry? then again, one could also 'show' that cities with the largest slums went for Kerry. So your point, much like all kool aid drinker supposition is lame and stupid.

Any reason why Ohio is in Blue?

A similar spreadsheet correlating counties with larger homeless populations would show they overwhelmingly voted for Kerry.

I'll be forwarding any and all comments from this thread to my friend, G.O.E., the originator of the above spreadsheet.

He's not even a Freeper, but he may become one soon...

While I could accept the premise that those states that voted for Bush may have more mobile homes per capita, those who LIVE in those mobile homes most likely voted for DEMOCRATS!

I bet the areas with the highest crime rate voted for Kerry. I believe those would be the blue areas on the map. Hehehe. Parley

First thing I noticed is that Ohio is in the Blue section.

Besides they voted for Clintoon from dirt hole Arkansas whose favorite meals were Kraft Mac and Cheese.

And yes lets do add up the crack whores, pimps, drug pushers from East LA and not the least of which we must not forget who all voted for Hanoi Kerry because they reachieved crack for the vote?

>"Do they have a category for most crack houses per capita?"

- Good point O.S.
Washington DC has the lowest number of mobile homes, and probably the highest number of crackheads and whores in the entire nation. Not to mention their crackhead mayor.

I'm sure the illiterati will glom on to this, let them.

Except any comparison of Red State vs Blue State is completely worthless. What would be interesting is a comparison of Red COUNTIES vrs Blue Counties. Since the margin in so many states was so thin the comparison of states is complete unfair to the hundreds of thousands in these states who voted for the other candidate.

These statistics are in the category of "So What?"

Mobile homes are usually made out of aluminum and don't have foundations. Therefore, they leak heat like a sieve. Therefore, mobile homes are located more in warm states than cold ones.

The South is the strongest part of the nation politically for the Republicans. The South is also the warmest part of the nation. Therefore, more mobile homes may occur the same place as more support for Bush, but the variables are independent.

As Mark Twain pointed out, "the number of Methodists, and murderers, were rising at the same rate in the Nebraska Territories." Concluding that Methodism causes murder, or that murder causes Methodism, would be false because the variables are not related. There, does that help?

I heard a stat on the radio today, actually a sound bite from Bruce Reed(Reid?) from the dems, he said the only demographics they held onto this time were "those with a post graduate degree and high school dropouts" those they lost ground on were "white women, married people, couples with children, people over 30, and people earning over $40,000 per year." He said nothing about those who live in trailer homes though. Who was it again that were the "stupid voters?"

Even if they are just mobile homes most of the people in them OWN THEM. PROPERTY OWNERS as opposed to the NON OWNER, apartment/low income housing Democrat voters.

Forget the mobile home stat. Here's a stat that matters:
Generosity Index (charitable donations)

Wouldn't it be interesting to compare what the Blue Counties chief employer is compared with the Red counties? I suspect the chief employer in the Blue Counties is Government followed by entertainment then journalism. So if they want to leave the USA, I say let them. The Blue counties stooges can sit in the dark freezing and starving while regaling each other with how superior they are to everyone else.

Note to Dims. You areas produce NOTHING. You are parasites on the red counties. So if you so hate the USA, LEAVE. We are tired of carrying your sorry A@@'s

What you also have to consider is that warm weather areas (the Sun Belt) disproportionately went for Bush and those areas are the places most suitable for mobile homes.

The reality is that Kerry only carried the cities. Bush carried every place else. Kerry's people are either on fixed income (retirees), the underclass and a couple of trouble making billionaires.

Bush has the middle class. I think that is a great thing for a political party.

I like where we're at. I like who's in our tent. It's the heart and soul of America, people.

For what it is worth, I live in a mobile home park in Palm Beach county, Florida and I have made a study of voting patterns here. Out of the 400 retirees who live here I believe eight voted. The distribution was the same as the county 40/60% Kerry. I have been fascinated to learn why the rest don't vote. They are from the NE and don't believe in elections, think all politicians are crooks, and feel as if they have always been lied to. They do believe in the mafia, though.

Rush Limbaugh brought up the "Generousity Index" of the red states today on his show.

If liberals want to impune conservatives in this red vs blue canard, they WILL get their arse whupped, in every category that matters. Yeah, and that includes the good folks that live in mobile homes! ;^D
