Poor Hungry Whites turned Republicans, an indictment on the system.

  1. There is a high correlation of a white, rural and isolated population with "low food security" and their trend towards the Republican party.

    The irony here is that if these people and their local governments would behave in a more socialist manner, that is to be willing to share more of what they have with their neighbors, they would not be so isolated and have such low food security.

  2. the overwhelming majority of famers are conservatives ...

  3. According to the results of the Census Bureau survey, those at greatest risk of being hungry or on the edge of hunger (i.e., food insecure) live in households that are: headed by a single woman; Hispanic or Black; or with incomes below the poverty line. Overall, households with children experience food insecurity at almost double the rate for households without children. Geographically, food insecurity is more common in central city households. The survey data also show that households are more likely to be hungry or food insecure if they live in states in the Midwest and South.
