Te Democrat brand has become toxic in rural America and they know it.
They have spent so much time catering to rich, urban elites that they have lost the rest of the country.
This could have political implications that reach far beyond 2022 and 2024.

‘The brand is so toxic’: Dems fear extinction in rural US
Some Democrats in rural Pennsylvania are afraid to tell you they’re Democrats.
The party’s brand is so toxic in the small towns 100 miles northeast of Pittsburgh that some liberals have removed bumper stickers and yard signs and refuse to acknowledge publicly their party affiliation. These Democrats are used to being outnumbered by the local Republican majority, but as their numbers continue to dwindle, those who remain are feeling increasingly isolated and unwelcome in their own communities.
“The hatred for Democrats is just unbelievable,” said Tim Holohan, an accountant based in rural McKean County who recently encouraged his daughter to get rid of a pro-Joe Biden bumper sticker. “I feel like we’re on the run.”…
The Democratic Party’s struggle in rural America has been building for years. And it’s getting worse.
Barack Obama won 875 counties nationwide in his overwhelming 2008 victory. Twelve years later, Biden won only 527. The vast majority of those losses — 260 of the 348 counties — took place in rural counties, according to data compiled by The Associated Press.
Just remember. Democrats worked hard to earn this status.
“The trend lines in rural America are very, very bad… Now, the brand is so toxic that people who are Democrats, the ones left, aren’t fighting for the party,” said fmr. Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota. https://t.co/IxvvLx6mmc pic.twitter.com/9Nt7vGAOdv
