  •  I definitely agree it is less divided but... (3+ / 0-)

    A lot of the divide in America is a function of racial and religious divides. Moreover, within a given region, the largest cities seem to tend to be more friendly to the left than the surrounding rural areas (ie Strasbourg is one of the only areas of Bas-Rhin to vote for Hollande and Orleans was one the only areas to vote for him in Loiret).

    Certainly though I would agree that the urban/rural divide is much smaller on face and appears to be occasionally swamped by regional or class divides.
