OK, about the headline: It was my suggestion. It suggests I know why Trump won.
But I offer some theories involving negligent journalism and the Electoral College’s expiration date.
First of all, there was no Trump revolution. It didn’t happen. It didn’t happen in Massachusetts, or Texas, or Wisconsin or Pennsylvania or anywhere. Donald Trump ran a strong enough campaign to benefit from the work that had been done before him. But he didn’t tap into anything new. It was already there waiting for him.
