He focused on getting votes in rural areas, with many rallys. Logically, if you have a village all talking about this great talk that the NSDAP have had, it's gonna stick around and build up support. Also, in the cities many people had access to information about the other parties. The NSDAP focused on going around Germany to the towns to get more publicity- a tactic which statistics have shown that the NSDAP did alot more than other parties. This can party explain why they were more popular in rural areas.

hitler wanted to make germanhy self sufficent therefore more food to feed the entire country must be made this means that the farmers/ people in rural trade would make more profit as they would have to make and sell more , there were set standards for the number of eggs that a chicken must produce for example - hope this helps :D

He promised them lots of prosperity and to get them financially okay - they still hadn't recovered properly from the Depression and needed help so he made lots of promises to them so they would vote for him.

rural communities were going to be the power house of the war effort for suppying food. it was all very well having a work force to build tanks but if they couldn't be fed then it would be very limited for obvious reasons. I suppose having the support of the farmers would lead to the support of the city folk if they could have a guarantee of being fed. though this was Hitler so no would have complained publicly if he couldn't keep his promises.

because rural areas were easier to indoctrinate as news would spread easier within them and they did not have the influence of choice that people in the city had. :)

(Among other reasons listed) People in rural areas had a stronger Catholic faith which was in conflict with the ideas the NSDAP presented.
