Women and people of color make up the majority of the Trump coalition
Matt Bruenig

No, the liberal bourgeoisie already claimed it was the poor who (in defiance of all logic) supported Trump. The reason: Because the poor didn’t vote for Clinton. Out in the real world, both candidates were deeply opposed by much of their own voting bases. In the end, roughly half of all US voters rejected both, voting third party or withholding their votes. Clinton won the majority of votes, the Electoral College vote went to Trump, so that’s what we’re stuck with. And Russia had nothing to do with it.
