Why are poor Southerners more likely to be Republicans?

Anonymous
I live in South Mississippi and people here who live out in the countryside and wear MAGA hats, are Republicans. But my teacher said Republicans are for business, Democrats are for the people. So if I'm a poor person, common sense would tell me to vote Democrat. However, this isn't the case. Why?
