Romney’s Rural Base
In general, the more rural a state is, the more likely that state is to vote for Romney. There are a few outliers: Maine and Vermont are very rural but also very likely to vote Democratic, and Texas and Utah are not as rural but are very likely to vote Republican. The battleground states don’t fit neatly in this pattern, either. Note how few swing states there are: Most states are likely to vote for Romney, or very likely to vote for Obama.
