To put it bluntly (h/t John Gruber) :
Trump voters are ignoramuses, bigots, and/or fools. But time is not on their side. This is their last gasp.
“The divide is economic, and it is massive. According to the Brookings analysis, the less-than-500 counties that Clinton won nationwide combined to generate 64 percent of America’s economic activity in 2015. The more-than-2,600 counties that Trump won combined to generate 36 percent of the country’s economic activity last year.”
The split appears to be unprecedented in modern America.
