Iowa's division isn't urban versus rural voters

The Gazette should investigate another aspect of the voting differences (urban/rural) in Iowa. Investigate the question, “Do you believe in God?”

Studies show that atheists voted for Joe Biden 71-29 percent. But this is not an urban/rural split. It is true in all areas, cities and towns.

If The Gazette were to include some of the more liberal denominations in their study, it would be seen that the existing division is not “rural vs. urban.”

Iowans vote in agreement based on what they believe, no matter if a city, town, or farm. It’s a spiritual issue.
