    In the article above, we were told that Romney lost to Obama cuz there was simply not enough angry white men to vote for the GOP anymore and that the GOP would have to now reach out to the brown skinned folk that are flowing across the border everyday now.

    However, Trump is being presented by these same people in the press as someone who feeds into the same angry white males but still won the election anyway

    How does that work?

    The union vote in the midwest either voted for Trump or sat out the election. That hasn't happened before, outside of West Virginia.

    So why did the union decide to vote for Trump?

    You have a selective memory. People hated Hillary's guts. Trump was also hated, but unlike Hillary, had fanatical supporters. She never could've said "I could shoot someone in the middle of NYC and not lose voters".

    That's why Trump won.

    Because ever since they failed to shut down the government over Reagan's firing of the PATCO workers, the Democrats have pretty much abandoned class politics. Hence President Clinton's coalitions with Republicans to pass corporate-favored trade deals and pretty much let unions and union workers die on the vine. Sanders tried to address it, but the Democratic Party was simply too beholden to corporations to hear him.

    So Trump comes in with a "populist" message promising to renegotiate the trade deals, and many of them unexcited about Clinton figure what do they have to lose? If nothing, they start a dumpster fire.

    The results came as no surprise to Bernie. Nor to Michael Moore who was raised in the rust belt.

    The problem is that after 1984, the Democrats settled into centrist politics so basically now we have too pro-corporate parties, one pro-choice and the other anti.

    Plus racism.

    Obama's approval ratings are through the roof. He could win a third term easily if it was allowed.

    When Trump gets sworn in I will say let the joyous news be spread the wicked old witch at last is dead. I will say the same thing the day she dies.

    Because there was widespread voter suppression in this election. 7.2 million African-American, hispanic and Asian voters were removed from the voter rolls in 28 states. The Republicans really outdid themselves this year. And Trump still barely won. I expect them to double their efforts for 2020.
