Are Trumpists (Just) Dumb Racists?
umair haque

Your article implies that racism is the only thing driving the support of the Trump candidacy. I don’t agree. I think the driving force is the consistent cancer of corruption and self interest among career politicians. People are so tired of choosing their candidates based on their promises and then watching them fold to special interest groups, becoming a part of the herd, sniffing the scent of money and following it with no thought to the good of their country. Political corruption is destroying our country. I think Trump’s followers are blindly hoping the he will lead in a different direction. This is a lot like people who blindly followed Obama, thrilled with his promise of “hope and change” with no explanation of what change he was hoping for. Unfortunately, there isn’t a viable candidate running in either party.
