Right out breeds Left

In the Washington Post Phillip Longman writes on the evolutionary consequence of conservatives having more children then liberals -

Political Victory: From Here to Maternity

The strongest indicator of a person's politics is the politics of their parents. This is not a consequence of upbringing since as they get older people's political perspective moves closer to that of their parents. People are born with predispositions towards the liberal or conservative parts of the political spectrum.

Which goes towards explaining why reasoning with political opponents often makes not the slightest difference.
