That big wave of less-educated 2016 white Trump voters? It never happened!

Trump said the poorly educated would vote for him, are you calling Trump a liar?

Seriously, you completely failed to differentiate between low educated voter turnout, and the portion of low educated voters that voted for Trump. It's irrelevant if the same number showed up to vote, if a high percentage of them voted for Trump then they are to blame.

Trump when??

Trump before this past election season??


Or trump after??


Hillary has been one of the most conservative Democrats policy wise just like her husband.


Why do you think they constantly get to call her out for saying crappy stuff in the past??


Bill Clinton was a VERY conservative President. He doubled down on the war on drugs, allowed the safe and risky banks to merge,cut welfare and Medicare..

All conservative policies, pushed by republican that he broke party to make a deal with.

Aka all the bad stuff that has caused countless hardship since.




Trump's only consistant ideology is money. I truly don't think he has any political or social understanding whatsoever.

As to the Clintons et all - they are neo-liberals in the purist sense of blending business and politics with just the same ideology as neo-conservatives. Perhpas the neo-cons are more open about their agenda then neo-libs but the agenda is the same.

Liberal by definition


Classical liberalism is a political ideology that values the freedom of individuals — including the freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, and markets — as well as limited government.



Interesing - huh?


It developed in 18th-century Europe and drew on the economic writings of Adam Smith and the growing notion of social progress. Liberalism was also influenced by the writings of Thomas Hobbes, who argued that governments exist to protect individuals from each other. In 19th- and 20th-century America, the values of classical liberalism became dominant in both major political parties. The term is sometimes used broadly to refer to all forms of liberalism prior to the 20t


Sounds a lot like modern conservatives and so called libertarians - n'cest pas?

Conservative - to conserve that which is good - to husband resources for the common good.

Progressive - to experiment and proceed with what improves life for the commons.

Mankind - to balance the two - keep the good from the past and find ways that work better for all.

Why is the assumption that the left is educated and intelligent? If the left has the vast majority of low income and poor how does that equate to being educated and intelligent? Once again it seems the silent majority in the middle that works hard and actually makes a decent living gets over looked.

Here is a good example of what income votes for what. I think the left has the biggest span between the poor that hopes the left makes their lives better with ever increasing subsistence from the Government that never happens and the liberal rich that seem to do things for the poor but actually don't. Seems right around 75k jobs become important to people so they lean right.

Not my job as I referenced the Washington article and you need to read it. We are allowed to reference an article aren't we?

Then again if you read it you would loss your plausible deniability excuse to support your above statement.
