According to Newt Gingrich, the Democratic Party is "the party of food stamps." Does Newt Gingrich actually know anything about the food stamps program? Probably not. If he did, he would realize that the reddest state in the union, Texas, has more folks on food stamps than any other state. 3.7 million Texans need government assistance to eat. And the number has risen by almost 800,000 since last year---the largest growth in recipients for any state.
So, according to Newt Texas is the most Democratic state!
Does Newt know (or care) that folks living in rural areas are more likely to need government help to put food on their tables? In 2005---before the recession---people who lived in the country were twice as likely to receive food stamps as those living in cities.
So, according to Newt rural America is more Democratic than urban America .
