DES MOINES, Iowa The mood quickly turned celebratory at the Iowa Democratic Partys Election Night gathering here, as supporters danced to soul music and drank $4 domestic beers as news outlets reported President Barack Obamas re-election.

Because pig crap has destroyed their brain cells.
Seems there is a FR movement going now, to ban all products, unions etc. that are Democrat leaning.
How can that apply to IOWA?
What I always heard is they vote democrat because they are almost completely reliant of agriculture subsidies. But that never made much sense to me considering that dark red states like Kansas and Nebraska are just as reliant.
Ethanol? Are they trying to protect their subsidies?
Farmers are notorious for embracing Freebies. That and they’re drinking out of the same aquafer as Minnesota.
Spending too much time out in the sun without a hat?
Misinterpreted the term “free market concepts” for “free cheese and Marxist concepts”?
Because 99% of the population is in the quad cities?
I dont get it either. i went to college in IA, waaaay out in the northeast corner, still very liberal in the middle of the farm lands.
Hope I got that right guys ~ my only connections to Iowa are in the SE where you'all think they speak with a Souvrn' accent.
See the movie THE MUSIC MAN. IOWANS are easily fooled.
More government freebies - grain they put in our gas to ruin our cars.
There is atleast one or more John Deere factories in Iowa. That would be some big ticket items to say no to.
Q: how do you starve a farmer?
A: weld his mailbox shut.
Simple: They’re idiots. Just like everyone else in this country. They simply don’t realize that free stuff doesn’t come from “Obama’s stash,” but from taxpayers, and that this is not a bottomless well from which we can draw.
Simplest explanation is usually the right one: Most people today are stupid, and some states just flat have more stupid people than others.
Eat less HFCS.
They might have a clue when the cost of heating their homes and driving to work drains their wallets. It is coming you IowIdgits and don’t look across the river to Nebraska because we will be in the same sewage boat thanks to you morons. Once the farmers can no longer afford to work their fields because of the price of fuel and trucks no longer run for the lack of it you can look forward to farm collectivization and you city obummer twits will be told to do your civic and democrat party duty by working the fields pulling a plow.
FUBO & FAD
Rural areas are generally much more conservative.
Demographically the population has left rural areas and concentrated in urban areas.
Simple as that.
