A few elections ago, campaign workers here from out of state were amazed to find some of the poorest South Dakotans living in the most run-down inadequate housing proudly REPUBLICAN. They could not understand why when the GOP almost always takes actual action (rather than what they say) to make life harder and harder for the poorest or most unfortunate...whichever comes first.

You may want to ignore practically every ad on this site however.
Average South Dakotans who continue to vote Republican after that party tries to screw them for the benefit of the rich and polluting are like a dog that enjoys repeated beatings.
