Very interesting read. Much of this is similar to what I read in J.D Vance’s Hillbilly Elegy a couple weeks ago. I’m wondering if you could speak about why these communities are drawn to Trump rather than an actual economic reformer like Sanders. Note that I didn’t vote for either of these candidates in the primary but its very clear to me that Sanders is serious about economic reform and Donald Trump is just a transparent con artist who will say anything if its politically expedient. Do you think its because of the retrospective/nostalgic message (MAGA) of Trumps campaign?
