It could be possible the minority is more motivated to show their support than the majority. They have a good lobby base. More tightly knit.

Or it could be anomalous observation, or rapid generalization of a fact that we hold in our brain as repulsive.

One attracts two things to ones attention - what you love and what you hate. One attracts what one hates to one's attention more than what one loves. Human nature - hence the ever so popular saying, and cliched, stay positive.
