There was not enough listening. Too many scared folks fed up with their lives and financial situations got lost in all of our liberal talk about the polling numbers and Trump’s racism and sexism. Many rural and blue-collar, financially struggling people, smart or otherwise, raised their middle fingers high at Obama and the current state of affairs in America, which they view in such a skewed fashion that they feel their singular, individual problems are basically more important than the overall progress of the very society that makes their lives livable. No one saw this coming in such a stunning fashion. Who the hell pegged Wisconsin as a red state?
