  •  not sure about these states (0+ / 0-)

    But can say for my own state (MN) that in fact these less educated whites are not homogenous at all.  Most are not engaged at all and are suspicious at best of politics.  Between that and the lack of information sources (the radio dial issue), they are harder to reach but far from impossible.

    The point of view is a touch more libertarian and they are pretty turned off by what they perceive (sometimes accurately imho) as urban elitism towards them, but they can come out surprisingly strong left, especially with regard to the environment, the banking system, and speech issues.

    Just my two cents, I really feel part of this demo is a forgotten left constituency.  Ed Schultz (also MN) does a good job with some of this.

    Most people say that what some people say is pretty stupid.
