A few weeks ago I asked Ricochet readers to tell us why they were conservative. Thank you to all who responded. I thought it would be interesting for everyone to see a quantification of the replies. In what can only be described as "Pseudo-Science*," I tried to stratify answers according to recurring themes. I only counted individuals who self identified as fitting into one of the following categories:
Faith: Conservative because of faith
Family: Conservative because of upbringing
Politically Sensible: Conservative because it makes political sense this election
Interaction with liberals: Liberal tolerance was so convincing they became conservative
Virtue of others: People who were persuaded by other such as WFB, Sowell, etc.
Logica Evictus Sum**: Logic convinced them to change from liberal to conservative
Logica Hoc Dictat: Logic dictated they be conservative from the beginning
