As Another State Turns to the Right, NY Times Blames Lack Of College Grads

If you want a perfect example of insulting media bias, look no further. One state in the midwest is trending Conservative and the New York Times blames it on a lack of education.

‘New York Times’ Despairs of Iowa’s Turn to the Right

What’s the matter with Iowa, a once-blue state that voted for Trump last year? The New York Times thinks it has the answer:

There is little to suggest a future for the party here in this once reliable Democratic stronghold, at least in races on the national level. President Trump easily carried this county in the 2016 election, and Iowa as a whole; the only counties Hillary Clinton won were in metropolitan areas or university towns.

Iowa’s dramatic change has been both abrupt and a long time in coming. In 2008, the state propelled Mr. Obama to the White House. A year later, it was the first in the Midwest to legalize same-sex marriage. But last November, Mr. Trump won Iowa by a larger margin than he won Texas. And now Republicans control the governor’s office, the Legislature, both Senate seats and three of four in the House…

This is the key passage:

Pundits might think otherwise, but places like Clinton and dozens of other small towns like it along the Mississippi River have already gone red, the result of a long economic decline that changed their makeup and eventually their politics. Like many towns in Iowa, they have been losing more college-educated voters than they retain, leaving a less educated and less mobile group of voters more likely to vote for Republicans, whom they see as more in touch with their lives and beliefs.

How insulting is that?
