One Country Project Releases Q3 2022 Media Analysis

Washington, D.C. - Today, One Country Project (OCP) released its Q3 Media Analysis, the third in a series for 2022. The analysis compares traditional media coverage from rural and national outlets, as well as rural traditional media and social media. From July to September, these media landscapes focused on the economy and inflation, abortion, and energy in the landscape of the approaching midterms.

“With the midterm elections approaching, OCP’s Q3 Media Analysis is vital for understanding where voters are leaning and what they’ll prioritize when they get to the polls,” said OCP founder Heidi Heitkamp. “Conversations in rural America continue to focus on the economy and the resurrection of the job market. In addition, issues regarding abortion, crime, and energy are driving rural voters to the polls to elect candidates who reflect their values.”

“Regarding abortion, conversation in rural outlets has shifted to the urgency of elections and extreme policy initiatives of individual politicians. This is particularly important to rural voters – especially women – who already have limited access to health care. Additionally, the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) generated conversations throughout the country, giving positive credit to Democrats for achieving legislative wins for our communities; but concerns regarding implementation and how and when rural voters will receive these historic benefits remains.”
