48. But different regions DO have different demographics

I don't think anyone here is saying that every single person in South Dakota is conservative. But, as a state, South Dakota does legitimately have a long and well-documented history of conservative voting behavior. That's not bigotry, it's just the reality, and most South Dakotans, I daresay, would agree that they vote conservatively and are probably proud of that.

Likewise, there is a significant division between urban and rural political behavior. In the last election, 27 of the 30 largest cities in the US voted for Obama. Urban areas are the main source of the Democratic Party's base; the GOP has its base chiefly in suburban and rural areas. It's not prejudice to merely state what is a well-established, undisputed fact.
