Support For Stewart Inches Closer To Suburban And Urban Areas (WVTF)

Stephen Farnsworth at the University of Mary Washington says these numbers may indicate an important shift. “These results do suggest that there’s a Trumpification of the Virginia Republican Party. The differences between urban, suburban and rural Virginia seem to be less distinct in 2018 than they were a year earlier.”

That could spell trouble for moderates, he says, although it will make it easier for Republican candidates in the future because they won’t have to tailor separate messages for urban, suburban and rural voters.
