    Anyway... where is this information coming from? For that matter the idea that Trump was elected by the working class seems pretty suspect as a generalization. A good third of people eligible in, say, the last election didn't vote. Would you like to take a swing at what class the majority of those folks belong to?

Most research on the subject finds the working class is less likely to vote, either from feeling disconnected from either party, or because.. and this is probably not shocking... can't get the time to from work.

From personal experience, I can tell you there is a lot of truth to that.

There is a reason why half the country did not vote in 2016, and there was an unusually large number of third party votes in many states.

Yeah, it is a great reason to expand the voting by mail, early voting or make election day a holiday. 

Although those help but I doubt they are a cure all. One of the things that is depressing to many people, I imagine, is that you have two choices that are varying degrees of bad. 

And on top of that with power entrenchment your vote matters less and less all of the time. And now you have folks denying results for elections that do not go there way, making things even worse. 

Look Raist bunnies...
