A large amount of McAulliffe's votes will come from well-off liberals in Northern Virginia. Those people are brainwashed into believing that wealth comes from greed and evil, not surprising since a lot of their wealth comes from grifting off the government.
Another belief is that Republicans are evil for a couple reasons, mostly memes gleaned from Planned Parenthood ads. PP spent millions of tax dollars (fungible funds) to bash Romney in 2012 on the radio here. But the main motivation comes from the fact that the TEA party will dry up their punch bowl: the 100's of billions in government contracts.
Another belief is that there are people suffering due to inadequate handouts. When I ask one of the liberals about the "single mom without health care" I am told she is not an actual person but there are "millions of them" out there. But other than the occasional and easily debunked Fluke, they can't produce real anecdotal persons.
Yup. Lived in Alexandria and Arlington for a few years. It's getting colonized by people from MD and elsewhere who vote for this crap and somehow can't understand why MD isn't liveable anymore.
Seen it before- I'm a native Californian. Now it's coming here, too. I'm running out of places to be free in.
