City vs. countryside

The current Atlantic Monthly, staff writer David A. Graham, explores an issue that I've addressed from time to time in an Illinois context -- that the real division in the U.S. is not between black and white, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, but between city and countryside.

That became vividly clear in the presidential election when, as Graham put it, "the gulf between urban and nonurban voters was wider than it had been in nearly a century. Hillary Clinton won 88 of the country’s 100 biggest counties, but still went down to defeat."

It's a good piece.
