"They Are A Bunch Of Hillbillies That Drive Pick-Up Trucks"

Posted by   + Show Post

I overheard someone saying this in reference to Republicans at a soccer game today. So, I'm curious... How many of you Republicans out there drive or have a husband who drives a pick-up truck? Let's see how accurate this stereotype is.

I am a registered Republican, and this is my daily driver:


LOL

As you all well know, I consider myself more of a Libertarian than a Republican, but when a Libertarian isn't available on the ballot, I vote Republican probably 80% of the time, with the other 20% going to conservative Democrats and Indies.

This is for fun, ladies. I'm just curious as to how accurate this stereotype is.

I think it's more of a city/country thing. Almost everyone I know here has a truck since sports cars are good for hauling manure around. We're Independents and of course, have a truck.

We are Republicans and own a pick up truck. My dad too, hes also a Republican.

I get what he is saying though, but the funny thing is that if you go to the mountains, in gun country, they are gun totin truck drivers with Republican stickers all over... he's just  fallen for a sterotype.

I like the Chevy :), ours are American too.

 It's a stereotype that tends to have basis in fact. Rural areas tend to vote Republican and in rural areas, you live in BFE so you need the larger vehicles (ex. trucks, suvs) to make it through the snow (up north) or whatever is down south. More populated areas (such as big cities) tend to vote Democratic because of the issues that they deal with like large scale poverty. Oh and to answer your question: We are moderate Dems and my husband is going to get a truck the next time we get a new vehicle.

Quoting radioheid:

My twin sister is also a registered Repub. She also drives an SUV (Chevy Blazer). 

I didn't necessarily believe the stereotype, but I have heard similar comments before, so I was curious. My older sister, a Democrat, lived out in the sticks for a few years and bitched at length about all the rednecks with their Bush/Cheney bumper stickers on the back of their pick-up trucks. lol

Quoting Kylie819:

We are Republicans...we have an SUV and a minivan :)

::::cueing the theme from "Deliverance":::::

I prefer a pick-up or larger vehicle and since we've had one for years (a larger vehicle of some sort), I feel incredibly vulnerable in a smaller vehicle and especially with Arizona drivers/car driving texters.
