It's no coincidence that Republicans are fond of labeling Democrats and liberals as "the elites." It's a carefully chosen word, supposed to elicit the image of an arrogant snob.
Based on my own experience, I'd say it's pretty accurate.

The fact that rural, economically disadvantaged parts of the country broke heavily for the Republican candidate in the 2016 election is well known. But Medicare data indicate that voters in areas that went for Trump weren't just hurting economically — many of them were receiving prescriptions for opioid painkillers.

The findings were published Friday in the medical journal JAMA Network Open. Researchers found a geographic relationship between support for Trump and prescriptions for opioid painkillers.

Not a real strong correlation there actually. But what do the percentages in the "long term opiate use" map mean? Surely there's nowhere where over 20% of the population is on opioids long-term?

That is a terrible pun.

Since I am apparently a Nazi for not being a Republican, I hope you know I intend to send people to the gas chambers for bad puns.
