Establishment: large cities, lots of federal employees, large retiree populations, or organized religion still near mid 20th century strength (Mormons in UT, Baptists in TX, etc.)

Populist: rural, young, disconnected, limited federal presence, less connected



I agree with this map.

To fill in the blanks:
Establishment: North Carolina, South Carolina, Washington
Populist: Mississippi, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Idaho

I think you would have to specify by party ... for example, Ohio's Republican Party seems to have somewhat of an "Establishment" feel, while it's Democratic Party seems pretty populist.  Additionally, due to the closed primary status, actual registered Democrats in West Virginia (who outnumber Republicans by a huge margin) are probably very populist while registered Republicans (who enjoy their biggest registration advantages by the DC exurbs) are fairly establishment, even though that is not very intuitive.

That's true
