Why Trump Won
I read a commentary from City Journal yesterday where the writer attributed Trump's victory to any number of issues, all of them somewhat obscure. Obscure only because I don't think Joe and Jill Sixpack voted for Trump because of relative minor policy issues they disagreed with. It was a larger discontent than that.
Robby Soave over at Reason magazine, seems more on target. He thinks Trump won because, "
"....because he convinced a great number of Americans that he would destroy political correctness."
He probably has a point. If I ever liked anything about Trump it was his willingness to say things that pissed people off. I've met other non- Trump voters that felt the same way.
Some of us- maybe more than you think- get awfully tired of trying not to offend someone. Soave admits political correctness is difficult to define, but I'd suggest enough people had had enough of it to elect Donald Trump.
