Let’s Not Reach Out to Rural Voters

  1. To the extent that conservatives have any interest at all in such conversations, it’s very conditional: “Admit and apologize your failings first. Then we’re willing to discuss those failings further with you.”
  1. The margins against Democrats in rural counties is large. Very large. In those 22 Ohio counties mentioned above, Trump got 70% and greater of the vote in all of them. An effective candidate running a very effective campaign might garner a few votes in many of those counties but the idea of turning them blue is fantasy.
