Outside the major cities, there’s the common idea that people living in the big cities are all criminals or corrupt or at the very least have values alien to the “real Americans”, and thus cannot be trusted to vote “properly”, as the wise and worldly folk define and know the concept of “properly”.
The reality is horrendously complicated. The “wise and worldly” folk are often rather ignorant in areas outside their very narrow areas of expertise. Laws and regulations which such people believe would promote and empower family farms and small businesses usually do so in the short run, but in the long run serve as tools for big business to crush them underfoot and reap great profits in doing so. The laws and regulations which hobble big business in order to give others fair chance hurts small business as well, just to a lesser extent, but that looks and feels like oppression.
The unchained bigotry some would prefer gives insecurity to all for in exchange for the feeling of superiority for some, and mostly only exists at the level which it does due to the fact that fomenting bigotry can be very profitable. And while it very much feels like the rural/exurban (and sometimes suburban) areas are at the mercy of the distant, “ignorant” urbanites (and to be fair, a lot of urbanites don’t think much about things outside their own city) in some regions the reverse is more true (those who have never lived in a city have little concept of the realities said urbanites face).
There’s no good solutions at this point - only unsatisfactory compromises - and insuring a tyranny of a particular minority definitely won’t help.
