    Yep, the average Trump voter…

    • CrankyToo says:

      There’s no such thing. By every meaningful measurement, Trump voters are well below average.

      • CPANY says:

        Sounds good, but it’s meaningless. What “meaningful measurements” are you thinking about?

        • CrankyToo says:

          For starters, how about intelligence quotient, morality, common decency, tolerance, spirituality, education…. Never mind. At this point, all that just sounds like sour grapes.

          I had to hold my nose to pull the lever for Hillary, but she really was the lesser of two evils – a fact which will be borne out and hammered home to Trump supporters in due course. And I’ll bet you ten bucks to donuts, there will be no second term for Agent Orange.

          By the way, I’ve got no axe to grind. As a white male drawing a military retirement and Social Security, approaching Medicare age, with a gorgeous new home in a safe, secure Mormon enclave, and a tidy little nestegg, I’m very well insulated against the tribulations upstream. So, having done my civic duty, there’s really nothing left for me to do but kick back and watch the show, hopeful that the cowardly, inept and corrupt Democrat Party stands up a real progressive in 2020.

          • CPANY says:

            That won’t work because:
            a. Our intelligence quotient is a qualification that is not
            acceptable for public office.

          • CrankyToo says:

            That’s clear as mud.

          • CPANY says:

            So is your stupid recommendation. While you’re “kicking back and watching the show,” it would be well for you to fall all the way back and crack your head on the floor. That may shock you into sensible recommendations.

          • CrankyToo says:

            What the phuck are you on about? I defy you to read back through this thread and pick out any “recommendation” I made to you or anyone else.

          • CPANY says:

            Your first sentence is a recommendation for determining the “suitability” of candidates: “For starters, how about intelligence quotient, morality, common decency, tolerance, spirituality, education….”

            Had you forgotten what you wrote?

          • CrankyToo says:

            That was an answer to your question; not a recommendation in any form or fashion. And only a complete moron would interpret it as such.

          • CPANY says:

            You are probably an expert on “complete morons” because you are one. Maybe you are “too cranky”, but your biggest fault is your inability to form a logical thought and express it in writing.

          • CrankyToo says:

            Krikey! You must be the most annoying little pissant of the entire fourth grade class down there at Hoot ‘n Holler Elementary School! Go away, Numbnutz.

          • CPANY says:

            “Krikey”? Where did you get that expression? Is that one of your “safe secure Mormon enclave” sayings?

    You don’t understand what’s happening. Trump’s appeal is to the “disaffected,” which is a polite way of saying “pissed off.” A lot of people, especially those who are or were middle class, are angry at being screwed by the rich.

    As an example: The panic of 2008 was caused by the bankers and stockbrokers who engaged in fraudulent mortgage practices. Did Obama insist that his attorney general prosecute them? No, he did not, because that attorney general told Obama that the government would lose in court. Obama swallowed that line, despite the fact that the attorney general would have had to sue the clients of the very Wall Street lawyers who he wanted to rejoin after his tenure as attorney general terminated.

    Obama talked a good game, but he came up short on delivery. Hillary Clinton is “tight” with the Wall Street crowd, so she’s not going to do anything to rein them in. Didn’t her sleazebag husband sign the bill that eliminated the Glass Steagall Act when he was president? A supposedly populist democratic president signing a bill that eliminated one of the most basic protections from Great Depression

    Our pissed off disaffected population knows this and they don’t like it. So, when Trump came along saying some of the things that the disaffected were thinking, he found fertile ground and they voted for him. The same principle holds for deporting the illegals, building a wall between Texas and Mexico, bombing the hell out of ISIS, restricting Muslim immigration, cancelling NAFTA and staying out of other foreign trade agreements, etc.
