A new survey conducted by a national teachers union and a liberal think-tank found the majority of rural voters in Minnesota have a favorable view of President Trump. But former North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp, founder of the One Country Project, says even while supporting the president, those surveyed did express concern about how rural Americans are perceived nationally.
“This sense that they are getting left behind or disrespected in terms of their contribution. They want the rest of the country to better understand what they care about and why they care about it and they want to have that conversation.”
In Minnesota 52-percent of those surveyed expressed a favorable view of the president, nationwide that number jumped to 55% among rural voters.
