I don't know the answer to that beyond a generic one that placates to the great divide in American politics. What I can tell you is that it is not a one way street. Both big cities and rural ones both need each other and always will. That is why great presidents realize this and provide funds for BOTH areas.
You cannot have one without the other. It is impossible.
I have no argument with that. I love Americana and country music is a huge part of that, in fact Americana doesn't exist without its rural contributions and they are magnificent... not all, no, but plenty. And obviously not all rural Americans are dumbasses, plenty of them never voted for Trump and I assume that plenty of them abhor him (although I don't recall hearing/seeing that beyond some songs... but those do count for A LOT).
Still, Twupm getting the electoral votes in so many states makes me really angry and distrustful of rural America, despite these ruminations and considerations. Pisses me off and I don't trust southerners as a rule. I gotta figure plenty are great but as a rule, I have to be suspicious. No, I haven't set foot in southern America for decades. Even so, I don't figure I'm out of touch.
There are enclaves of tvumpies not far from my urban semi-suburban town (which has no visible aspect of GQP whatsoever), I mean ~20 miles away, they have had marches (in their own area) with signs displaying how stupid they are, saw it on TV. But if they come to my town (Berkeley, CA), they typically incite violence... AFAIK they stopped coming here and doing that a few years ago. Antifa take their role seriously here.
Edit: Now, placating to a divide in American politics is ZERO reason to not get your shots. It's 100% stupidity and inexcusable. If I lived where I knew people who wouldn't get their shots I'd tell them forget it, I don't want to know you until you're vaccinated.
