Although polarization is not something new in the history of US elections, it is a rift that marks a great difference between two opposing visions about the future of the country.

The political division between the country and the city of the United States is one of the great fractures that were evidenced by the elections of November 3.

In the projections that Democratic candidate Joe Biden won against President Donald Trump, rural areas, towns and small cities were dyed red in support of the Republicans, large cities and their suburbs leaned for the democrat blue.

And although this polarization is not something new in the history of the American elections, yes It is a crack that makes a great difference between two opposing visions about the future of the country.

Trump gained a wide advantage among uneducated white voters living in less densely populated areas, a fiefdom that has proven loyal to him, even in the midst of the country’s worst economic crisis since World War II.
