I agree with Crystal and Patti that the conservative voters I know saw the 
choice this election differently than liberals, and I also think that engaging 
in discussion with them about why they made their choice is going to be more 
productive than projecting my (or anyone else's) values and judgment on them. 

In thinking about diversity of thought, belief, and morality, I found this TED 
talk piece about moral views of conservatives and liberals to be useful 

I sometimes wonder if we struggle in cohousing with the in-group and authority 
and purity dimensions of group dynamics because liberals have trouble 
understanding that for half the population these are highly valued additional 
dimensions of morality, in tension or balance with openness and limitation of 
harm? (Maybe if we had more conservative values, we could keep the kids room 
and the share closet clean?)

My two cents. YMMV.
