Just heard on NPR radio that most sports fans are Republicans. Most Democrats are not so interested in sport events (football, baseball, NASCAR ect).

This finding indicates psychological profile of two political views. Competive sports always produce winner and loser. Fans roots for their team to win. Their hope is to win and willing to take the risk of loss. Such competitive psychology make them believe society should be such competitive environment. They do not favor equal results. Every body is responsible for their own fate. This reflects Rebulican political philosophy as fighter and competitors.

Democrats dislike competitive sports. They tend to have sympathy for losers. They would rather avoid such conflicts. Team work and equality are more important than letting a few people become winners at expense of others (losers). People of such psychological profile tend to be more liberal and democrats. They favor stability over polarity due to competition.

Who dares to chanllenge conventional view or genius could become anothergenius.
