    It's the rural, suburban, and exurban parts that are wingnutty.

      Most big cities around the country are blue. When you live side-by-side with people who look/act/think/ARE different from you, most people stop functioning with blinders on and actually embrace diversity. When you embrace diversity, you start to have empathy for people in other circumstances, especially poorer circumstances.

      It is my firm belief that what your average Republican lacks is any sense of empathy whatsoever.
