I live out in the country on a cattle farm and the few people I do know are conservatives. Pretty much isolates you to live on a farm. I don't know but a handful of people in the small town 3 miles away, like the owner of the hardware store, the owner of the local garage and the owner of the feed store.
People keep their noses to the grindstone here working and don't spend time talking politics.
But I do get a general sense talking to these small business owners that people have more money in their pockets, are spending more money and feel good about the economy.
Not much activism going on around here either. Glad I don't live in the urban centers where political partisanship is more on display.
I use to live in rural America, same as you, town was 3 miles away. The Family ran a Large Farm Implement and Hardware Dealership.... Case, NewHolland, Gehl, Kubota etc. and also handled all terraine vehicles and chain saw businees. Very busy place and we all worked there in one form or another.
Although I was raised in town you naturally grow to love all the farmers in the area and respect the extraordinary hard work they do. Without them we’d all be in a world of hurt!
