    Great article. I live in a small city surrounded by farmland. Not quite flyover but not big city either.
    We see a lot of both sides here.
    Seems odd though, that the most accurate article I have now read on the election came from Cracked. I love it.
    We could look at it this way. Trump threw out the political platform, running on his own opinions and making up his platform as he went along. Does that not make him a third-party in disguise?
