Rural America will win and keep its historical influence in Governance
Urban America will win and take over Rural Americas influence in Governance
this is what I'm saying, Kitsap and Mason counties are not "urban" but by proximity to seattle they're counted as in the metro area, when in reality, they're not. so that's 290,000 people in the metro column who shouldn't be. so when someone is saying urban is better because 80% of americans live in an urban metro area, it's a misleading number.
NY City $ 22402
NY State $40272
This is one thing that distinguishes us from Europe, where urban areas truly are the prime areas
I think the poll speaks for itself
At the end of day arguing that "the word urban really isn't or shouldn't be in suburban and you really shouldn't look at the word that way" is a neat little argument but doesn't correlate with reality at all. Suburban people drive into cities to derive their income. Most suburban areas are expanded cities. You can not like that reality but to deny it is to deny reality both on paper and in every other feasible way.
Look at all economic activity in America it's based in cities and it's based around suburban people in radius of their cities working in those cities. To claim otherwise is delusion.
