I have to admit it. I fully did NOT expect Donald Trump to become the 45th President of the United States of America. All of the odds were against him: He was underfunded compared to Hillary’s money machine; Nearly every media source was openly against him; Not one major celebrity came out to support him; He was dubbed a racist and a misogynist; All leading figures of his own party abandoned him; Much of his policies were in direct opposition with the aims of the globalist elite; Robert De Niro said he wanted to punch him in the face.
Despite all of this, Trump won. While Hillary had the entire establishment behind her – including elite organizations such as the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations – she did not win. How did this happen? Is this, as some observers claim, a ‘rebellion of the people against the elite’?
One thing is for sure, one voice was heard loudly: Conservative White people from rural areas. Looking at the electoral map, Trump won nearly 100% of the areas corresponding to this demographic.
Did they feel that their current government helped and pandered to every possible minority while leaving them out to dry? Did they feel that the liberal values promoted by the Democrats went too far against their Conservative outlook? Did they feel that the American ‘race’ was being diluted by a steady stream of illegal immigrants? Did they reject the tolerant attitude of the government versus Muslims? Answering yes to any combination of these questions lead to a vote for Trump.
