How to Connect with Trump Voters
I don’t know why, but it just occurred to me today what a “Hail Mary pass” Donald Trump was for his voters. There must’ve been such a sense among so many people that no one, anywhere, would represent them. No wonder so many of them went for the person who seemed to at least feel as betrayed as they felt. And no wonder those people still cling to him. They’re convinced that without him, they’ll have no one. The Democratic Party has to just stop, I think, for a while. No more brow beating or forehead slapping. Just grieve for a bit about where our country is right now. There is a connection to find with voters in the vulnerability of that moment.
