By winning the urban vote which made up 30 percent of the electorate in 2008 in such a lopsided manner, Democrats could afford to lose rural areas, which were 21 percent of the overall vote. When Sarah Palin talked on the campaign trail about the real America, she was referring to a shrinking one.I've seen a similar breakdown elsewhere.
The biggest prize is the suburbs, where half of all voters live.
Thanks for the link. I want to use the info.
