Just surprised that with the bad economy, even the lefty folks have not changed. What could happen is that, with the Dems in your state being in meltdown mode as you have said, many keep their politics to themselves.
“many keep their politics to themselves.”
That has actually been a quiet part of NC society since 1865. During the Civil War, the Union occupied the eastern part of the state, the Confederacy controlled the middle, and the west was mostly Union sympathizers. Afterward, the east and middle remained firmly in the hands of the Democrats, with some violence involved. Discussing politics was mostly framed in that context- if you were the wrong political party in the wrong place you didn’t talk about politics, because you might have to let your fists, knife, Sam Colt or Iver Johnson do your speaking. Even long after that, the attitude was, you didn’t talk politics outside of close friends or family. That’s gradually going by the wayside now- the Civil War/FDR Democrats are dying off, and the Republicans are gradually finding a voice. Mostly, the Democrats here have been very publicly incompetent in the last decade or so. The marriage amendment vote demoralized them a lot, also. That might be another factor in them being a bit quiet- they were rather stunned to find real NC still lives yet.
Look him up to see if he is still on voter rolls, and to see if he voted.
