Why the groups that are even more conservative than most conservatives vote Democrat.
Muslims, extremely religious and moral, vote Democrat.
Hispanics, mostly devoutly Catholic, vote Democrat.
Catholics, need I explain, vote Democrat.
African Americans, very conservative when it come to gays issues, vote Democrat.
Jewish, mostly vote Democrat, which is odd, because from what I see from being on internet forum, liberals don't particularly like the Jews, nor do

From the end of the Civil War, African Americans primarily favored the Republican Party due to its overwhelming political and more tangible efforts in
achieving abolition, particularly through President Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation. The south had long been a Democratic stronghold, favoring
a state's right to legal slavery. In addition, the ranks of the fledgling Ku Klux Klan were composed almost entirely of white Democrats angry over
poor treatment by northerners and bent on reversing the policies of Reconstruction. However, as years passed and memories waned, African Americans
began drifting to the Democratic Party, as Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal programs gave economic relief to all minorities, including African Americans
and Hispanics. Support for the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s by Democratic presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson helped give the
Democrats even larger support among the African-American community, which consistently vote between 85-95% Democratic.
Democrats increased their share of the Hispanic vote in the 2008 presidential election, with Barack Obama receiving 67%. Cuban Americans still
heavily vote Republican, though there has been a noticeable change since the 2008 elections.
I understand that each of these groups must have special interest that they think the Democratic party can offer them.
So then ones special interest trumps ones moral values?
Just things I wonder about.
What is it?
