Dante Chinni, Patchwork Nation director, and author of the book Our Patchwork Nation, offers analysis about how the New Hampshire primary results broke down demographics.
Why are the mostly white communities defined by their features, "Moneyed Burbs," "Evangelical Epicenter," etc and there's one minority community that is defined simply by race, "Minority Central"?
This may work in some places but as a former NH resident, it's important to point out that most NH counties are so geographically large - I think it's nearly impossible to characterize them in this simplified way. A better metric would be to look at TOWNS, not counties. To lump small towns with Ivy League colleges into a county with small towns that are ag-based (forestry) seems nonsensical to me.
