>50 year old Karen in a rural state doesn't understand why people in big cities don't just have mommy and daddy inherent them a dozen acre plot of land with a house and a barn and a Chevy Suburban

*that's* the disconnect. A good portion of the electorate, by sheer force of probability, got their own mini-town where they're the mayor and sheriff and etc. They've had the same 2-5 neighbors since childhood, and anybody who exists outside of that isolated, controlled (yet profoundly.... Fake) construct, is The Other, and is Evil.

They want the 21st century, for everyone, governed like it's the 1800s. Because they never *left* the 1800s.
