Meet the Press Reports: Democrats Lose Ground In Rural America



  • Ajay Arya on April 29, 2022

    It's just a result of poor education… That's why the GQP guys education first.

  • Tools 4 Tradies on April 29, 2022

    reading a lot of comments suggest a lot of democrats are so condesending "country people are simple have no great life experiences" we have to explain things to them simply. The democrats are a party of elitists. Even the poor fools that don't live in LA, NY,Chicago can see that. Sleepy Joe hasn't achieved anything since he got in office they are losing ground everywhere not just rural areas

  • Zack Brumis on April 29, 2022

    Rural Americans are dumb af.

  • DeAnna King on April 29, 2022

    It just seems that Trump Republicans are so mean and so unhappy. Just spitting unkind words and thinking unkind thoughts. How sad to be you 🙁

  • Denise Groce on April 29, 2022

    How about the state of the Republican Party! The Democratic Party isn’t going insane and being taken over by a bunch of lunatics.

  • Spectacular Disaster on April 29, 2022

    they are the dumbest people on earth, they beleived Trump was only 239lbs simply because Mar-a-Lardo told them so

  • Suzy Girl on April 29, 2022

    Vote red cry later

  • Kid Creole  on April 29, 2022

    Bidden won by 10 million votes the most by any President in history…
    so what went wrong ???
    Beats me …???

  • rikcab on April 30, 2022

    The ignorant peasants love their 1% Reality TV Show. Lets finish their time, it is almost over Gentiles.

  • Christian Dekker on April 30, 2022

    The foolish wicked demon-crats, even if they escape execution before November, still may not receive more than 15% of the total votes (just like they actually received in the 2020 election theft), because even many, many Democrats are fed up and sickened with buyer's remorse as Biden has proved that he is nothing more than an un-caring, worthless, criminal, pile of horse B.S. All 3 of these evil swamp serpents were hired by the ILLUMINATTI PEDOPHILE BANKING SLIME TO TOTALLY DESTROY OUR BELOVED USA AND THAT IS ABSOLUTE TRUTH!

  • DJ Pomare on April 30, 2022

    Thank God, every country on Earth except America have NOT become followers of the Fox TV/News Max/Facebook religion.


  • Endre Fidje on April 30, 2022

    Yeah, Americans would rather have the wacko GOP guys rule the country again with "Don the Con" back in the WH. What a strange world we live in …

  • RC on April 30, 2022

    Part of it is due to the gop having carte blanche in the spread of their disinformation and propaganda machine in rural areas.

  • Robin Smith on April 30, 2022

    Americans dislike Groomers

  • Billy Pardew on April 30, 2022

    Those people are coming since people they don't want to deal with all your woke bulshit. And for that reason you'll never get them back

  • Don Jindra on April 30, 2022

    I've been telling Democrats this for a long time. They have turned their party into a party almost exclusively indebted to and therefore interested in the urban, black vote. In the near future white suburbs and rural areas will be voting 95% Republican because of it. The black block will be overpowered by the white block. Hispanics will be mostly in the middle. So Democrats are doomed to be ruled mostly by Republicans on the national level, and increasingly on the state level. This is terrible news for our country. It will allow insanity on the Republican side to go unchecked. But Democrats refuse to understand basic political realities. They are dazzled by ideology. They are going even more insane than Republicans. Wise up, Democrats. Stop pandering so much. Stop 'cancelling' those who refuse to conform. Learn that 'diversity' is not only skin deep. That's superficial. True diversity is based on ability and ideas.

  • Jerry Straka on April 30, 2022

    before 1981, when Reagan took office, laws existed requiring local ownership (non-corporate). the rule of 7 was the colloquial expression. the reason for this was to give the local community owners (THE PEOPLE OWN PUBLIC AIRWAVES) control over their broadcast stations (they are leased, not owned by the proprietors).
    the fear was that corporate owners (again, leases) would subvert the mission of the public airwaves for purely financial reasons. added to this 'rule' was the Fairness Doctrine, which stated that these stations broadcast local/regional news and whenever requested, allow all sides of any controversial issue to be aired (to inhibit any attempt to propagandize).
    REAGAN changed it all. he allowed for corporate ownership (leases) and in multiple locations. local ownership was no longer encouraged. the rule of 7, which limited the number of stations one entity could control was 'deregulated'. media conglomeration began. then, REAGAN abolished the Fairness Doctrine requirements. this allowed media moguls to broadcast select and often controversial messages to be aired without response from opponents (i.e. propaganda)
    the first radio stations to be bought out were in impoverished rural communities, since they were the most financially distressed. in came the moguls armed with hours upon hours of nationalized partisan talk shows. rural radio (and later TV) became an outlet of conservative talk ONLY! no response to those partisan talking points was required. so, all that was broadcast in these areas was one-sided, think tank created, hyper-partisan programming. and that paradigm still exists today, and is supplemented by cable propagandists (Fox and others).
    INDOCTRINATION is what it essential is. rural communities don't get opposing views, as PUBLIC AIRWAVES were expected and designed to bring them. these were purely political moves promoted under the false guise of 'free speech', saying not allowing corporate run stations was an attack on corporate freedom. again, these are public airwaves – not private. the notion that controlling corporate propaganda was an offense to free speech is preposterous. corporations were free to approach local management and ask for airtime, just like anyone else. but corporations didn't want 'a slot' of time, they wanted it all, which is not conducive to free speech at all. it limits opposing views. it was a known false claim.
    SO…here we are, over 30 years later and we wonder why rural communities are so overwhelmingly conservative.
    it's because that's all they are exposed to in their communities, right-wing talk. books have been written exposing this atrocity, but changes have not been made to return control of local content to local communities (the true owners of local public airwaves) – it is 100% corporate messaging.


  • David Jones on April 30, 2022

    So STOP listening to Michael Steels who say " remain a (R), things will change with your vote!" It's time to knee cap the GOP and bail from this party. The party that would not allow Obama to seat a Justice, the party that acquitted Trump TWICE, the party that disavows the Jan 6 Committee, the party that parrots putin. And Steel says to keep allowing this party to have you counted on the side of treason. Steel is just a stealth Mitch McConnell

  • Hendrycks Putt on April 30, 2022

    Am I the only who feels the electoral college just makes it so a handful of states have all the power? I mean, nobody gives one about Alabama or Utah.

  • Laurie Rose Jones on April 30, 2022

    Rural America representation has been purchased by our own oligarchs.

  • Michael on April 30, 2022

    End the Electoral College. Let every vote count. If Democrats make ending the Electoral College their #1 voting rights priority, all of discussion of problems and potential illegal maneuvering to steal elections, becomes a moot point. It would also make any Republican candidates: Have an Agenda – which they won't right now as their main goal is to covertly undo all of the progress Democrats make in making things more orderly and better for the everyday person.

  • Michael Shawn Barrett on April 30, 2022

    Rural America is full of enemy frumpers

  • juarez69 on April 30, 2022

    The lefty fetal position bawling is going to be so entertaining come November. 😆

  • James Darnley on April 30, 2022

    God help these rural Americans if they elect republicans because they don;t care about rural America only the rich they will be worse off under republicans the rich will get richer and they will get poorer.

  • redrock1963 on April 30, 2022

    This is an example of how uneducated and loyal to THEIR tribe the average American voter really is.
    If you have POLITICAL objections and you are unable to identify why…..you are basing your vote solely on emotions.

  • Y McZ on April 30, 2022

    Oh, if they vote for the republican party they would see the worst of their years on earth

  • Tom an actual patriot on April 30, 2022

    Yeah they did loose rural Americans .
    Republican propaganda is being unanswered .
    They paint Democrats as socialists , baby killers , vote stealing thieves , pushers of racial hatred and blm violence, and anti Christian.
    Simple white and Hispanic voters believe this narrative and have no reason to vote for Democrats when they believe the propaganda.
    Biden had the chance to appoint a competent A.G. and have the department of justice prosecute some of the criminals and disprove the conspiracy theories and propaganda but instead nothing happened.
    So of course Republicans think they are correct to vote for more “ patriotic . God fearing , Real Americans.
    Thanks to a total lack of will in the Oval Office we will now soon loose any chance to defeat the push to authoritarian rule and we can thank worthless Joe and his sleeping crew .

  • Willys Best on May 1, 2022

    The 3 most corrupt people in the country!!! And people see it.

  • Felix Poventud 3 on May 1, 2022

    Trump and his friends are evil! These people must be stopped! They destroying our country!

  • Paul Hagan on May 1, 2022

    Democrats have to go! They’re horrible for the country.

  • John Voorhees on May 1, 2022

    So while I am a Republican(NOT a TRUMPLICAN) why is it that Democrats cant figure out what is OBVIOUS
    Rural America is SICK of Inflation, and while the war in ukraine contributes… BIG GOVERMENBT SOCIAL Spending is what caused alot of it. You cant just PRINT and Spend Money, the bill always comes due and middle america is feeling its affects NOW
    Furthermore the progresive wing of the demcratic party has infiltrtated lessons being taught in schools. School is for learning NOT PUSHING an agenda on middle school or grade school kids. Parents like myself listening to English and History lessons during remote learning was quite scary.
    While I will NOT vote for a Trump candidate, I certianly wont vote for a progressive Democrat. In 2022 and 2024 Democrates only have themselfs to blame

  • Youtube CH on May 3, 2022

    rural gop racist area

  • Issstari on May 5, 2022

    They abandoned rural america and the working class in favor of coastal elitism. Think about what they did to all the working manufacturing jobs with the help of the neo cons. Legit shipped all the jobs to china for their own profit and benefit. They totally backstabbed them all now all their social policies based on sheer indoctrination. Are just aimed at the small costal elite almost nothing they do helps the working class or most Americans. They abandoned the coal miners by destroying their industry threw sheer amounts of regulation so it was profitable anymore. They did the same thing with gas just recently why would they support someone who spits in their face.

  • Michael Lupton on May 5, 2022

    Vote all Red !!!

  • Will M on May 5, 2022

    Democrats problem is they refuse to help Americans.

  • Ben Garcia on May 5, 2022

    Rural American believe in less government limited government get out of my pocket and let me be control of my own destiny. While the Democrat Socialist Party is totally opposite look what they have been doing to the American economy

  • HollyBOTW on May 6, 2022

    I'm not really urban or rural, but I hate the gdamn democrats. Don't care if they hate me. In fact I hope they do. They are violent hateful lying hypocrites who is anything but tolerant. That was evident when the so called tolerant white liberals were nothing but bigots toward minority conservatives like Tim Scott & Candace owens

  • Lisa Riggs on May 7, 2022

    Watch 2000 mules. The “big lie” ain’t a lie

  • Marke on May 11, 2022

    Democrats never had rural America, the only way they won was using mules to finagle the elderly and stupid to steal the last election. It’s the same tactic they have always used. Millions of votes in every state.

  • Honk Honkler on May 13, 2022

    Who knew calling your former voters ignorant racists who only believe the way they do because muh "RuShUn DiSiNfErMaYsHuN" is winning strategy 🤣
