Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Just to reinforce my earlier remarks.
Regardless of ideology, there are powerful economic drivers to the geographical trends. I'd bet that wages are generally lower in red states, but the cost of living is also considerably lower (you can buy a house for next to nothing in Topeka). The result is that it is often feasible to run a single-income family. Whereas in Seattle or Boston, you need two incomes just to pay the rent.
