Trump's "Base"

This is a really good piece that talks about how and why folks support Donald Trump [anyway]. These are Hillary’s “Deplorables.” These are the religious folks that Elizabeth Warren mocks. These are people who thought Barack Obama would care about them. In short, these are people that Democrats have been shafting and ignoring for the past 8 years. As one brilliant Oppo told me, “They were going to get screwed either way, so why not roll the dice on Trump?”

There’s a whole lot of hurt out there that the Democrats are totally out of touch with.


P.S. My father’s people all hail from Somerset County, Pennsylvania and I have relatives who mine coal there.
