Perhaps he didn't mean being religious, or wanting guns, as much as voting based off of those.
Makes more sense that way.
One reason you would think that he meant that was because he said at one point that people have "given up on voting based on the politicians stance
on the economy (because it never helps)..." so they cling to voting based off of guns, religion, immigration, etc.

Oh, and I've lived in both NC and Pennsylvania and I can vouch that there are many: cor-cob smok'n, banjo-strok'n, chicken-chokin',
cousin-pokin', inbred hillbilly racist morons in both of those states.
Currently in NC, they make up at least 40% of the people in the mountains (where I currently live) and tons of them in Pennsylvania too.
Where I currently live, people who don't even know me will say racist stuff to me just because they assume that since I'm white I'll agree with
I never had that happen in New Jersey.
*edited to add;
I even lived 30 min from wilkes-barre, which is the PA town he mentioned in the article.
