There seem to be a lot of people on Medium expressing a similar confusion about Trump voters. In this case women voters. I would suggest that people who read and write for Medium have a relatively comfortable life style or at least secure job. Compared to the average working class American who has seen their job and future prospects go from the decent paying job with benefits that their parents had in the 60’s and 70’s to the part time, insecure job, paying slightly above minimum wage, with no benefits job they now have. The mean income for a family with two working adults is $48,000 a year. Many of these people are working two jobs to get to that number and there health insurance, if they have it, most likely has very high deductibles.
People can look past a lot of Trump’s crap if they think a return to good jobs might be possible.
