And don't forget that a lot of us "coastal elites" actually live in fly-over land.

The split is not actually coastal vs heartland; it is rural vs urban. Looking at the electoral map on a per-state basis is very misleading. A "blue" state is just one where more than half the population lives in a major metropolitan area (and vice versa for red states).
