How To Identify Idaho Republicans?

Barring an appeal of federal Judge Lynn Winmill's ruling that Idaho's open primary is unconstitutional, it appears as though Idaho Republicans will now be able to bar Democrats from crossing over to vote in their primaries. Already, however, one rascally Democrat here has declared that he'll register as a Republican and mess up Norm Semanko's demographics. To prevent that, Huckleberries Online would like to develop some sort of test that suspicious Republican poll watchers can use to out in Democrats attempting to cross over.

Question: Can you think of any questions that could be used on a test to decide whether a potential voter who declares himself to be a Republican ... really is?
