Resistance makes subtle impact even where President is popular

The Associated Press - May 27, 2018 8:44 am

EDMOND, Oklahoma (AP) – The resistance to the politics of the current administration can be found even in one of the reddest cities in one of the reddest states in the union.
It isn’t as easy to enlist as it might be in places like New York, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C., where multitudes of college-educated, predominantly white women have joined a rolling boil of activism, often led by women of color, since the 2016 election.
The Democratic party and liberal politics are plentiful on the coasts and in most major developed cities. However, such political ideas are in shorter supply in swathes of the country that are less urban and more rural, which hold the majority of electoral votes and congressional seats.
It’s the reach of liberal activism into red states like Oklahoma that gives Democrats hopes of a national resurgence, though no one suggests that the heartland will change its political allegiance on a dime.
