Explain Kansas then.....never votes Dem.
Kansas will not go dem because as a voting block, we are strong, smart, independent and don’t need no Obama Phones. LOL
People make a lot of the farm vote and it does exist as a factor in some of those plains states but the thing to remember about farmers is that there really aren’t that many of them. Grain farming is a low labor, high capital business. For every farmer or farm worker in IA there are probably a dozen guys working factories in the Quad Cities. In Kansas you don’t have nearly the number of city/labor folks. That’s why Kansas is always the reddest of reds and IA is squishy.

Cuz we’re smart here.
Uhhh....nevermind. We elected Sebelius twice.
Iowa is almost nothing to do with ethanol. Catholic voters in Iowa put Dems over the top. Dems slip with Catholics in general and Iowa goes GOP.
