They Were Wallace Democrats. Then They Were Reagan Democrats. Now They Are Trump Democrats.

In between they were Obama Democrats and even Bernie Sanders Democrats.

That simple realization would have changed the entire election cycle. The lack of understanding of that fact made it impossible for Hillary to win. 

The Trump Democrats are not racists. They are not conservatives. They are not ideologues.

They are pragmatic populists. When something is not working, they want it fixed. When they are ignored, they will get your attention. When you screw them over, they will get even.

Trump Democrats were Obama voters in ’08 and ’12, believing in the “change” he promised.

Trump Democrats were Berners in ’16, tired of trade agreements and Wall Street.

They didn’t change their minds in the 2016 general election, they changed their votes to Trump.

They are not respecters of the establishment. They see the establishment as their enemy.

No one was more establishment than was Hillary, and no one was more an outsider than was Trump.

Not rocket science. Human nature. If you keep pissing on people and calling it rain, eventually they are going to throw it back on you in buckets.

  1. Touché! Hillary lost for her own immoral reasons, sure. But it would be grossly unfair to Trump to say he won simply because she lost. He won on his own merits. He promised change to the outcasts and the oppressed. But yes, so did Obama and he turned out to be the biggest liar and deceptive politician imaginable. Certainly, the worst US President for being a fake and a liar. His life turned out to be a litany of lies. Unfortunately….. He was part of the establishment and he was controlled by them. Let’s hope Trump can make the changes Obama probably wanted, but couldn’t bring about. Being so obscenely wealthy, Trump is beholden to none of the puppet-masters, such as Soros, Rockefeller, Bush senior, Brizinksi, Kissinger, Cheney, Rumsfeld et. al….. he might just do it this time. I’ve decided to like the guy, not so much personally but at least politically, despite his faults (and he has many) because I’m optimistic he might actually drain the darn swamp, after all. I hope he gets a fair chance but he’ll fight tooth and nail all the way. He’s got some heavy artillery pointed at him, metaphorically speaking. Hillary is prowling in the background. She’s not going quietly.

  2. “They didn’t change their minds in the 2016 general election, they changed their votes to Trump.” Although I voted green party, but I think you are right and many pragmatist voters did change their votes to Trump.
