Here he shares a number of research studies regarding political preferences. People tend to vote more conservatively when the amygdala within the brain is aroused through anger and fear. Those whose brains contain more gray matter tend to vote more liberally. Voting behavior is also conditioned by such factors as the location of the polling place. People will vote more conservatively when the polling place is in a church, and more liberally when the voting location is in a school.
