I met a couple who had gone from flaming Lefties to Trump conservatives. In San Francisco.
The woman had been listening to NPR on her radio during a regular drive to the Southern Peninsula. It got boring. So she started listening to conservative talk radio. Originally to Dr. Michael Savage. This woman is well educated and bright. Savage’s program began to change her mind. Now she says 'she is closer to reality'.
Her husband doesn’t openly brag about his new found conservatism. But he has become even more conservative than his wife.
I’ve watched this progression in several cases of friends. I’ve also seen conservative friends hold out against the depredations of their Lefty spouse.
I am not surprised at this anecdotal observation. The slightest opening will destroy a Lefty position. The Left is a repository of arcane ideas that have universally failed and a deeply unreal zero sum mentality in a positive sum world.
