Why do Democrats do so poorly with rural voters? [View all]

Urban areas tend to be more Democratic while rural areas tend to be more Republican. In many states it is a pretty huge disparity and you can clearly see it on election maps.

I know lots of you are wanting to call the Republicans party dead or dying. But Im sorry the GOP is going nowhere unless the Democrats find ways to be more attractive to these people. No matter what the GOP does or says these people will vote for them just to vote against the Democrats.
