I find Abilene, Texas to be a town that dispells the myths about how conservative places are intolerant, racist and homophobic.

I want to be where the people are. But not in the Midwest or much less, the South.
You can thank Hillary Clinton for that because during the primaries, Kansas was going for Bernie for democrat and Cruz for Republican. Pretty sure if it was between Trump and Sanders, Kansas woulda gone for Sanders.

Unlikely, Kansas has not gone for a Democratic presidential candidate for over half a century. The democratic leaning counties there are not large enough to overcome the overwhelming number of solidly Republican counties as a whole.

Trump won Kansas by over a 20% margin, which actually was lower than most of the other Great Plains states. That's still a lot of votes that would need to have switched to the Democratic side in order for Sanders to win, which is unlikely in these days when most of the electorate is locked into supporting their preferred party. Also the state had caucuses, not primaries, so the number of votes was very small relative to the total electorate. https://ballotpedia.org/Presidential...n_Kansas,_2016 . Clinton did win the 3rd Congressional District (KC metro area) but lost decisively elsewhere.
