    Character Name: David Grenfield Home State: Texas (duh) Home County: Travis County (yes, THAT Travis County) Home Media Market: Travis ---------------------------------------------------- Previous Job: Social Media Loon commentator, editor of True American Heritage (fringe social media "news" organization)Date of Birth: April 10, 1963Race / Ethnicity: WhiteReligion: AtheistWealth: Middle ClassGender: MaleSexuality: Heterosexual (he makes this abundantly clear)Are you married?: DivorcedHow many children do you have?: 1; Alyssa Grenfield, 21 ---------------------------------------------------- Attributes (200 points to distribute; max 100 for each) Experience: 15 Name Recognition: 55 Wealth: 25 Charisma: 105 ---------------------------------------------------- Affinity (100 points to distribute; max 100 for each) Conservatives: 60 Progressives: 25 Moderates: 15 ---------------------------------------------------- David Ignatious Grenfield was born on April 10, 1963, to Donald 'Don' Grenfield and Sarah Grenfield. David grew up as a Democrat, even voting for Dukakis over the immensely popular Ronald Reagan in 1984. During this time, he served in the Army as an infantry rifleman. His time in the Army would go on to shape his cynical, power-centric worldview. While he neglected to vote in 1988, he did vote for Bill Clinton in 1992. However, in 1994, he was among millions of voters that defected to the Republican Party, delivering the House into GOP hands for the first time in nearly four decades. His views shifted into a more socially conservative outlook, while he remained economically moderate. In 2000, he voted for George Bush and retired from the military. The Presidency of "Dubya" would come to radically change Grenfield's beliefs. He shifted left on some issues and hard right on others. He dropped his Christian faith in 2007, and he started supporting abortion ("keeps those minorities from getting uppity," he once said). He also became an immigration hardliner, calling for an immediate halt to all immigration. While his vote has invariably been Republican since 2012, he strikes a controversial figure for both parties. Mainstream conservatives consider him a far-right loonbag who makes them look bad, and progressives consider him misogynistic, racist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, and crude. In summary on support: (Conservatives like his support for police, distrust of affirmative action, anti-feminism, and other related things, but they are displeased greatly with his avowed support of Roe v. Wade, his blatant racism, and lowkey attacks on religion) (Progressives like his support for Roe v. Wade and attacks on religion...that's about it) (Moderates...yeah, they don't like him)
