People from Western countries have absolutely no idea that someone from a tribal culture that has had democracy somehow foisted on them simply cannot vote for someone who is not from their tribe. ...
So like democrats and republicans basically
A democrat who voted Hillary is more likely to vote for Trump, if he ever comes up for re-election, than someone from a tribal area of, eg Africa or Pakistan, is to vote for someone from outside their tribe. If it ever came out that they'd voted outside of tribal lines it'd ruin their lives, possibly get them killed.
Its not similar at all. Republican/Democrat are not subcultures. In fact, to the outside observer the USA often appears to have a single party state with two factions who make a big theatrical fuss about how 'different' they are.
