I apologize if this has been discussed here before, but a study performed by professors from Stanford University and the University of Pennsylvania reveal that in 3 states studied, the political persuasion of a substantial majority of convicts is Democrat.

They provided the following Democrat-to-Republican breakdown in felon party registration patterns:

– New York: 61.5 percent register Democratic, 9 percent register Republican

– New Mexico: 51.9 percent Democratic, 10.2 percent Republican

– North Carolina: 54.6 percent Democratic, 10.2 percent Republican

The article also states: "Democrats would benefit from additional ex-felon participation,” said the authoritative study in The Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science." 

My takeaway from this article is that criminals just feel more comfortable voting for someone like themselves.
