Thank you. I needed to hear that.

I've been listening too much to the explanations coming from more-or-less the same people who were certain, 2 weeks ago, that Hilary was going to win. And they've got a nice picture of people working precarious jobs (or no job at all) in dead end towns where the one and only major industry has closed, and there's really nothing much left. But if they weren't right 2 weeks ago, what makes them likely to be right now?

Where are you finding the statistics on voter income, by the way? I'm finding this whole election cycle long on feelings and polemic, and really short on potentially verifiable data.

FiveThirtyEight had stats on Trump's supporters during the primaries. CNN has exit polls. (Exit polls are of questionable accuracy, but they're what we've got.) And here's some studies on the most fervent of Trump's supporters.
