Flyover country is a derogatory term people on the coast use to describe where many of us live. It is apparently the attitude of many Democrats.
Clinton won the ten Atlantic states from Virginia to Maine and four of the five Pacific states. Amazingly, she won only six of the remaining thirty-five states. Except for Illinois and Minnesota, there is a solid sea of red from Virginia to Colorado.
A look at the 1992 electoral map shows how far the party has strayed from its roots. Bill won all the coastal states she did except Virginia. He picked up Pennsylvania and West Virginia in the East, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana and Georgia in the South, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa and Missouri in the Midwest and Montana in the West.
I heard reports that the only person urging Hillary to go after the flyover country blue collar vote was Bill. Apparently her staff laughed at him.
As the Democrats being the recovery process, I suggest they listen to Bill and ignore Hillary and her fellow elitists.
