GOP is losing yet another voting bloc.
Dec 23, 2012

GOP is losing women, Hispanics (in addition to the 47% victims) but now they are losing the high tech elites too. According to a Mercury news arctical Silicon Valley voters out-voted Obama to Romney at a ratio of more than 3 to 1. Even more surprising is employees at the elite tech companies Apple, HP, Intel, Google and Cisco contributed 85% to Obama campaign verses 15% to Romney's. Many of these people are actually voting for someone who promised to increase their taxes.

What left for the GOP, it seems, is just a bunch of hillbillies voting to defend the fortunes of the very rich.

A software engineer and Obama campaign volunteer said it best. "We all work on evidence based reasoning, and that is much more of a Democratic mindset than a Republican mindset." It's pretty hard to vote for a party that caters to the creationists and climate change denials (aka hillbillies).
