At its generally killer primary/caucus info site, the New York Times has the following “profiles of the voters” for the two main parties. Note the most important factor, evidently, for each (these numbers are for the close state of Missouri, btw)….
Profile of the Voters
|% of total||Clinton||Obama||Edwards|
|22||Independent or something else||31||59||3|
|% of total||McCain||Romney||Huckabee|
|54||Born-again or evangelical Christian||24||28||40|
|60||Candidate’s position on the issues is most important||26||32||31|
|37||Candidate’s leadership is most important||43||26||24|
Am I the only one pissed off by this race/gender v. political philosophy dichotomy?
