J.D. Vance: Why Elites Didn’t See the White Working Class Coming | TIME
Why did so many people not see the white working class coming?
I think so many people were blinded to it because they didn’t know a Trump supporter so they didn’t realize how passionate a lot of people were but also how durable his support would be in the face of a lot of political setbacks. I think it’s just a consequence of this incredible geographic and cultural segregation we have in this country.
