Urban-Rural Divide Grows Wider

Wall Street Journal: "The urban-rural divide has also grown in presidential contests. In 1992, Democrat Bill Clinton beat Republican George Bush in the 50 densest counties--the most urban in the country--by 25 percentage points. By 2012, Democrat Barack Obama's advantage in those urban counties had shot up to 38 points."

"The shift in rural areas has been even more dramatic. In 1992, Mr. Bush won the 50 least-dense counties--the most rural in the country--by 18 points. In 2012, Mr. Romney's advantage there had roughly tripled, to 53 points."
