Whose pitch addresses class more directly, Trump or Sanders? Whose policies would do more to close the divide? Do the poor in this country vote their own self interest? If people on both the right and left are fed up with the current system, why can’t they find common ground and elect a truley populist president? I think the reason is race. Race is America’s original sin, and it continues to haunt us. Trump’s dog whistle White Nationalism is the reason he is the Republican nominee, not his appeal to the poor. What will up-and-coming establishment Republicans take from Trump? My guess is the lessons of George Wallace.
