Idaho’s white-rural demographics remained the GOP’s bread and butter. Still among the whitest of white states, Idaho has fewer blacks than any west of New England.

Nationwide the party of Romney may have to rethink its appeal to shifting demographics. In Idaho, defiantly red, not much thinking may be required/Todd Shallat, The Blue Review. More here.
