3 VOTE TAKE-AWAYS

1. Trump-base voters were never ... not for one minute, the sadly neglected-by-elites downtrodden folk-heroes so many sappy, guilt-ridden-when-anyone-sneezes liberals, made them out to be after November 2016.

They were always fundamentally racist/homophobic/anti-Semitic, so easily manipulated, narrow proudly under-read people in need of and now enthrall to authoritarian leadership. And women Trump voters are those who ignore the sexism in order to celebrate the racism.

2. Greens were never, not for one moment, going to look at voting coalitions or strategy that could in any way be seen as originating with any group but themselves, w any ideology save their own.

3. Libertarians continue to specialise in alienating via deadly boredom the world-entire.

Good day to all.

Trump’s followers are afraid of illegal immigrants and sick of having their beliefs censored by PC considerations, so Trump had the sense to listen to their grievances (except for draining the swamp, a chant he didn’t start) and continue to pursue them seriously no matter what, even after he reached office. No one ever did that for them before; when most politicians reach office, reality sets in. It never did for Trump so he continues to represent them fully. 

But their fears and grievances mainly involve minorities, and putting the Presidential Seal of Approval on those grievances led to a whole lot of hate crimes. The fact that their fears and grievances involve minorities is exactly what makes you right about Trump’s followers.

That just about covers it....
