Day 29, 01 Year Trumpland: The Great Divide

The division between those who support Lil' Donald and those who do not tragically continues to widen. Indeed, it's become a chasm. I wish had an answer, but I feel like I might just be screaming into the chasm as well, with only an echo coming back. But I haven't entirely lost hope...but it's not the hope of blindness I observed today. Let's look at the divide...

MSNBC conducted an interview today with a Midwestern man from De Beque, Iowa. This long time Democratic town flipped for Lil' Donald. They asked John, who works in manufacturing and is a Union member, why he voted for Lil' Donald. The voter said he was nearing retirement, thought a businessman would be helpful, their investments haven't gotten a high return. He hopes a "return" to a capitalistic system [when was American not capitalistic?] would boost the value of those investments. Indeed, he voted for Lil' Donald because he is motivated by fear. Even the Russian stories don't change the faith he has in Lil' Donald. He called media exploitative, and he prefers to listen to Lil' Donald instead.
