Breaking Down The Rural-Urban Results In Iowa Caucuses

Bill Bishop of the Center for Rural Strategies has crunched the county numbers for the Iowa Caucuses to give us a picture of rural and urban trends Thursday, useful information for campaigns as they move on to future battegrounds.

Republican Mike Huckabee and Democrat Barack Obama won the Iowa caucuses last night. That's what they have in common. They differed in the support they found in rural Iowa. Huckabee, the former Baptist preacher and governor of Arkansas, did considerably better in rural Iowa than in urban parts of the state. Obama, the young Illinois senator from Chicago, won rural Iowa, but he did considerably better in the cities.

You can read the full report at the Center for Rural Strategies Website.
