It's just geography. When everyone only has to travel a couple miles to meet up, and if you lose a major contributor you can find a new one in the same area, then of course you'll be better organized.
This is all the land this nimwits have to travel, and all of their people are packed together like sardines.
This is Trump Land.
Similar amount of people, spread over a much larger area. Any meeting drawing a similar amount of people as Democratic meetings in the cities will be an all day, if not multiple day journey for many of the attendees versus Dems just going home at night.
Same thing with the protests. The backbone of protests are high time preference people. You need a whole lot of people to living close together to do this because low time preference people won't protest and high time preference people won't travel to protest.
This trend isn't just American though. Same applies in England for example which is small and densely populated. In fact you get less conservative protests and political activity even though if you are just looking at geography it should be much easier for them to organise.
This reminds me of a quote, "In the US, one hundred miles is a short distance and one hundred years is a long time. In Europe, one hundred years is a short time and one hundred miles is a long distance."
Distance and population densities are still the keys. How long does it take to get to the London city center to protest? Does everyone take the train, or drive in one of your tiny cars? How much planning would it actually take to get there, and how do you get high time preference individuals to do it?
In the US, many leftist protesters are nogs, who live right there. And any right wing protest has to pass through nog territory. How many of your protesters are paki's? What about other nogs? Where do they live?
And many of the rest of the protesters are young, under 30, single and living outside their parents homes. Where is the population density of these people?
It's still geography, with a time-distance analysis.
There's a numerical disadvantage that must be overcome first, before people descend in psychological blame games. Just like the competition between illegal laborers and tax paying laborers. Illegals aren't doing the jobs Americans won't, they're doing jobs with a distinct numerical advantage in take home pay while underbidding competitors through tax evasion.
