Yep. It's just a trick to put the rural vote (which tends to go red) above the metropolitan vote (which tends to go the other way). The GOP got stuck in their "Southern Strategy" and now they want to figure out some scam to bail them out so they can stick with their backward dogma and yet still win elections.
