not trying to be argumentative, but how do you know some one else is voting against thier own interest? because they are poor yet vote republican? thier priorities may elswhere than yours. for instance, a poor man might vote republican because they promise him to do away with affirmitive action and promise him the continued right to bear arms, he might hold these interests in higher regard than the fact that they wont fund public schools(he may not even have kids) or the fact that they wont take a serious stance on health care reform(he may never have been sick in his life). Dude, everything is relevent to the observer, they may actually be looking out for the interests he cares about.
