Meet the Romney 47%!
|Where do the most of the 47% live? Oh look! In the conservative states!|
As indicated by the state-by-state breakdown above, nonpayer states were more likely to vote for McCain than Obama in the last presidential election. The percentage of nonpayers by states is positively correlated with McCain voters (.40) and negatively with Obama (-.38).
The percentage of nonpayers is even more highly correlated with the percent of people identifying as conservative (.63). It was negatively associated with the percentages identifying as moderate (-.60) as well as liberal (-.53).
The more conservative you are, the more likely you are to be a non-payer. The more liberal you are, the less likely you are to be a non-payer.
