Differing Views Of Urban, Suburban, & Rural Communities
I found these charts interesting. They show the different views of Americans living in different types of communities -- urban, suburban, or rural. The charts use information from a Pew Research Center survey done between February 26th and March 11th. They surveyed 6,251 people. The margins of error are 4.2 points for urban people, 2.8 points for suburban people, and 3.2 points for rural people.
The top chart shows the political preference. Urban dwellers are mostly Democrats, while rural dwellers are mostly Republican. Suburban dwellers are split between the two parties.
The charts below show the differences on several issues.
