Study Confirms: Convicted Criminals Overwhelmingly Support Democrats
Good thing we have university studies; otherwise, we might doubt our common sense appraisal of the obvious. For example, pointy-headed experts have discovered to the amazement of no one anywhere that Democrats are so keen to have convicted criminals vote for the same reason they want citizenship for largely welfare-dependent illegal aliens — the vast majority of the votes will go their way:
A new study of how criminals vote found that most convicts register Democratic, a key reason in why liberal lawmakers and governors are eager for them to get back into the voting booth after their release.
“Democrats would benefit from additional ex-felon participation,” said the authoritative study in The Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science.
The authors, professors from the University of Pennsylvania and Stanford University, found that in some states, felons register Democratic by more than six-to-one.
One reason the entire nation has not yet collapsed into a looting spree, followed by a permanent depression, is that like other core Democrat constituents, criminals are often too shiftless to bother voting.
But despite recent moves in states to notify convicts that they can vote again, the study finds little evidence that they do, undercutting Democratic efforts to get them to the polls.
Once you know that criminals overwhelmingly support Democrats, and that Democrats eagerly court their votes, all other information is superfluous when it comes to making a voting decision.

The politics of rebellion for its own sake in America has morphed considerably over the years.
