The conventional wisdom prevalent in America is contrary to the real facts .
Someone made a comment that, in her opinion when a person is rich and conservative that person is also a Republican, because in her personal experience that was what she has found.
I, on the other hand, knew the hard facts since I had lived amongst some really rich liberals that they tended to be Democrats more often than not. For a part of my life I lived on the East Coast around the New York to Washington, DC axis, my knowledge of reality is very accurate and after I made my statement of the same fact, she questioned me on my authority to make that claim.
I found this really interesting article which I felt was very neutral albeit that it is not very flattering to the conservative but not so rich people who usually vote Republican from the deep Red states.
