Rural/Worker vs Urban/Degree holder voting

The elections in Austria and the USA have striking similarities . The rural and non college educated voter came out in support of the right wing candidate. While the urban and college educated voter came out in favor of the left wing candidate. The one noticeable difference between these two elections is how women voted. Austrian women came out in favor of the left wing candidate while white american women supported trump.
