Pragnya, thank you for reading the article and taking time out to comment. What you mentioned about your mother is something we have all experienced anecdotally — and this is becoming increasingly true for most things — it goes much beyond politics. Maybe this is also why it is impossible to convince a Trump supporter about Trump’s stilted arguments / lack of any grounding as much as it is difficult to convince a Hillary supporter how she is in cahoots with corporate big wigs who want to run the agenda.

This brings me to a larger question — What about the fence sitters? The politically apathetic? My contention is that they often go with the status quo, which is also worrying in a democracy.
