Actually the suburbs around cities are growing, not the cities themselves. It is about EMPLOYMENT. Most jobs are located in and around cities.

Yes, the cities have a LOT of problems. There are nice sections and downtown CBD's, but they are often surrounded by ghettos, poverty, and crime. Sad, but it is what Democrats do best. Ruin things.

I hate big cities. Makes me feel like I'm in some 3rd world country having to combat shop for the last parking spot, gallon of milk, package of meat that's on sale, living in some tiny apartment to the likes of "public housing" in Russia that costs $500k. No thanks.

Because of corporate manipulation and free trade concentrating all the wealth in metropolitan areas where the rich feed off the poor.

If you are a democrat you should hate this trend. Small towns use to prosper before it was deemed more 'efficient' for private power to manage the economy from command centers.

It has nothing to do with the lack of character of those living in small towns, they don't want to leave, but surviving off of welfare has caused a decline in their society.

This isnít true. I donít think everyone wants to move to the big city but these places are populated for a reason.

Texas cities are liberal and as the balance of power in the state continues to shift from rural to urban Texas, the state will become more purple.

That was the case in the 1980s. Today, inner cities around the country are coming back to life.

No one wants to live in the cities; they’re too crowded.

Trump will never point out the faults of these areas. They are white and the majority of the residents in them support Trump. His attacks on urban minority areas are tactics to harden his support in the rural areas. It plays to them.
