I've been speaking to people about this. The democrat party departed from traditional labor and economic issues, and went full identity politics. Because of this, "Hillary was a better candidate than Bernie," and "Working and middle class white people have zero grievances and don't need to be heard." This is basically identity politics and tokenism gone wild. Unfortunately for them and the Democrats, most Americans including liberals ARENT raving sjws who think all that matters is race and gender.

It's funny to see how the Clinton campaign is trying to blame Comey and the left is screaming racism when the fact is, the Clinton campaign ignored rural white voters who have been strong supporters of Democrats and this is why it's so hard for them to win Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan. It had everything to do with arrogence and elitism.
Trump camped out in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Florida and he even went to Minnesota. They say the Clinton campaign laughed at Bill Clinton when he said they need to go to places like Wisconsin and target rural voters.
Pace said Bill Clinton was “laughed at and ridiculed by a lot of people in the Clinton campaign.”
She continued, “After the Wisconsin primary when Bill Clinton wanted Hillary to spend more time there they laughed at him. They laughed at him and basically said he’s going after the voters that supported him instead of the ones that she will need. ”
I don't know how any Democrat can be mad at Trump. He just did a better job at campaigning and he targeted the right areas. The Clinton campaign was tone deaf.

I heard in ohio trump got 50% union support. That is huge. Democrats shed white voters every election(execept Obama) as they move further to identity politics.
blue collar union folk are not socialist, heck many of them are conservatives, they only stick with the dems so they can keep the wages they have.
