I see Trump and Brexit as manifestations of a new gullibility, driven by willingness to believe all, and only, that which is fed to people by like-minded sources and contacts on the web that they have found.
Have you ever actually spoken to someone who voted for Trump or for Brexit? Could not some who voted for Brexit merely have wanted to restore a sense of home rule ?
As for those who voted for Trump, I have spoken to several of them, many who were even college educated! Some were very torn at the voting booth, but just could not bring themselves to vote for Clinton. Some just have a deep hatred for Clinton. Still others hated Trump, yet still voted for him, again because of Clinton, and they voted with a glimmer of hope that Trump didn't actually mean most of what he said.
Team Clinton did itself and the whole country a great disservice in their "handling" of Bernie Sanders.
As a rural, college educated small business owner, who could not support either party, I am offended by the media's dismissive and judgmental portrayal of rural voters, and their perceived motives in the voting booth.
