    Default Trump voters

    From the NYT today:


    Just 33 percent of Mr. Trump’s supporters were white men without a college degree. A majority of Mr. Trump’s supporters defy the stereotype: They were either women, nonwhite or college graduates (or some combination of those).

    Over all, 47 percent of Mr. Trump’s voters were women. And though he struggled among affluent college-educated whites for a Republican, he still won 44 percent of voters making more than $150,000 per year, according to the Pew data, and nearly 40 percent of college-educated white voters.

    Perhaps surprisingly, Mr. Trump’s voters were about as likely as the supporters of other recent Republican nominees to hold a college degree.

    ——————————————-

    And yet, the article says:

    “If you want to understand why Mr. Trump won the presidency, there’s one big reason: white voters without a college degree....”
    ‘Rubbish!’ he always said. ‘It’s just a story about rabbits.’”

    Maybe when we have a president we could respect even if we don't agree with ALL his policies.

    Narratives are critical because people tend to accept them. It can be illuminating to see them shown as false.

    One of the more recent debunked narratives is that Trump has no support in Britain. The reality is that he does have support there, indeed, not only does he have a raft of quiet admirers, he has counter-protesters willing to don a red cap, grab a Gadsden Flag and go out into the street and get in the faces of the lefty loudmouths.

    Has any American President ever had that kind of support on the streets of London? I doubt it.

    Narrative fail.

    As to the OP. A college education might imply knowledge but not necessarily wisdom. College educated folks can be idiots also.
