You forgot to include "Southern" Democrats in the equation. As long as you're not talking about the liberals that live in inner-city Montgomery, Rural Democrats in the south are usually also very conservative and bear no similarity to the Boston/New York version.

For many southerners, it's almost like saying you are a democrat is more of a family tradition due to lingering memories of the "War of Northern Aggression" where the Republican party was the party of the northern aggressors. In terms of their political thought, almost all the southern democrats I ever knew were more like republicans than northern democrats, and most of them own more guns than I do.
