    Trump is largely the inevitable end result of a failure by the Obama folks (and proceeding administations) to deliver real improvement for the majority of middle class, and lower Americans. When the system fails the politicians will start beating the drums.

    In this instance it was the perception of a failed system, which was manufactured and propagated using computers as tools.

    Not really - the system had definitely failed the vast majority of the middle classes. Elizabeth Warren spelled out that reality in real data prior to her entering politics;

    The Coming Collapse of the Middle Class with Elizabeth Warren

    I suspect she knew that Hillary had no real commitment to address this - and that's why she shied away from endorsing Hillary as a candidate until very late in the piece. Neither did she endorse Sanders, as she knew Hillary's machine wouldn't let him win.

    Trump knows she's the real threat in 2020 - it's why he continues to poke slurs at her at each of his public rallies.

  • Neil,

    The Dems weren’t responsible for Trump – the racists and misogynists – mostiy not economically deprived – who voted for him were. In conjunction with an electoral system that strips votes from ethnic groups that vote for the Dems allowing Trump to win with 3 million less votes than Clinton.

    Plus Putin’ s interference and the alt world waging a vicious and dishonest campaign against Clinton.
