Democrats and the exurbs

So the argument is that Democrats have the big cities, Republicans have the exurbs and rural areas. But that brings us back to the “what’s the matter with Kansas?” argument: if Dems actually offered something useful to folks in rural areas — e.g., health care, real support for veterans — those folks might see a reason to vote Democratic. Bernie Sanders does well in rural areas in Vermont, and not just with the hippies. Who besides him is thinking about this?

Thanks to demographics, the Republicans have a virtual stranglehold on the House of Representatives.
