Time Zone: Idaho Political Fault Line

Randy Stapilus, the long-time political observer, points out in a recent Ridenbaugh Press post that the dividing line in Idaho GOP politics can be traced along the time zone -- south an east belong to establish, northern to Tea Party: "Travelers around Idaho through primary season, watching signage and picking up on locally-produced political literature, sometimes remarked about how different the north seemed to be from the south. Those observations have been borne out. The biggest divide in Idaho politics today lies along the line between the Mountain and Pacific time zones." You can read Stapilus report here.

Question: What do you make of Stapilus' contention that the GOPolitical fault line in Idaho is the time zone that splits it?
