The Revenge of Rural White America

Sunday, November 13, 2016 9:26
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This is the story of the election:

“It was supposed to be the year of the Latino voter. Unfortunately for Hillary Clinton, white rural voters had an even bigger moment.

Now Democrats are second-guessing the campaign’s decision to largely surrender the rural vote to the GOP. With their eyes turned anxiously to 2018, they’re urging a new strategy to reach out to rural voters to stave off another bloodbath when a slew of farm-state Democrats face tough reelection battles. …”

Everywhere we look from Iowa to Maine to Pennsylvania to Wisconsin to Appalachia, we see the same story of the rural surge. Rural Whites overwhelmingly voted against the cosmopolitan coastal elites. The 2016 election was a racial, cultural, and class divide.

Hillary Clinton bridged the ethnic divide between rural Whites in the South and Midwest:

“Rural white America has staged a political rebellion unprecedented in recent American history, propelling billionaire developer Donald Trump to an astounding presidential victory.

The result is essentially a repudiation of Washington and overthrows a pundit class that, as late as Tuesday afternoon, thought Hillary Clinton was poised for a tight but clear victory. A Republican surge undetected by virtually all polling kept the party in solid control of the House and Senate as well …”

It is what it is.

This is a big change. Just look at Trump’s 10 point victory in Iowa. Maybe it was the assault on Christianity? Maybe it was the total cultural alienation of the Heartland?

    Oh now this is rich. The progressive communist democratic party is going to reach out to rural America and tell them if they don’t vote democratic next time, they are going to create another round of blood bath protests against the peaceful, calm and productive conservatives. Like somehow anyone sporting a brain is gonna buy into this twisted thinking. Oh right, what this country needs are more destructive, prejudice, racist, chauvinistic democrats. This party hates women, children, people of any race and creed, but have somehow managed to convince the very people they are taking down, they, the progressive communist democrats are whats good for them? They embody the very core of every ill conceived prejudice and thought, they accuse the conservatives or any other faction of society of.
