Politics in our genes?

Study the issues. Listen to the candidates. Make an informed decision. And now it turns out my political views were pre-set in my DNA?!? Ok, no one's saying that for sure, but it's what some scientists are studying: whether our political tendencies might be coded into our genes.

So if people are genetically hard-wired to pick one party over the other, should they just show up to vote in November and let their genes do the talking? Or is it worth it to follow the entire election process and try to keep an open mind? What do you guys think?
