obstinately convinced of the superiority or correctness of one’s own opinions and prejudiced against those who hold different opinions
Oxford American Dictionary
But what the Democrats never understand is that Americans don’t really care what position you take, just stick with one. Just be strong. They’re not bright enough to really understand the issues. But like an animal, they can sort of sense strength or weakness. They can smell it on you.

A couple apropos excerpts from an article by author and Democrat Orson Scott Card come to my dim mind:
After all, the Left knows that America is divided into Smart People (the Left) and Stupid People (the rest of us). They know that if the Smart People can just control the information that the Stupid People receive, the Stupid People will let the Left do all the insane things they just know we need.
I have hung out with the Smart People and listened to them talk. I’ve heard them jeer at patriotism, mock the military, sneer at ordinary Americans who shop in malls and watch television. Their contempt for the Stupid People is so thick and deep that if the target of this hatred were members of a minority group, we’d know them for the bigots they are.
