The Hate: For decades, our political parties have been demonizing the other side. To the insiders, media experts, and campaign strategists, this was just a means to an end. But the voters didn’t get that. It became an end unto itself. We hate the other team. And that alone explains at least 80% of the vote. And it’s a problem. Because that hate can’t be controlled by those who fueled it. For evidence, just look at how hard the GOP establishment tried to stop Trump. And they didn’t even make a dent.
