Democrats still don't understand why Trump won

Democrats, who look down their noses at the middle class, who thought it was hilarious to call millions of Americans "deplorable," are still trying to figure out how Trump won, yet get it wrong. Good piece in the Wall Street Journal.

  "A new Journal analysis of standardized test results finds that over the course of their college careers, many students are not markedly improving their ability to evaluate evidence and analyze information. 'some of the most prestigious flagship universities, test results indicate the average graduate shows little or no improvement in critical thinking over four years,' reports the Journal. Given that more-educated voters broke for Mrs. Clinton, perhaps the lesson is that whether or not university professors can teach kids how to think, they have at least managed to teach them how to vote."

"The bank CEO sums it up: 'No wage growth. No investment earnings growth. No wonder families are stretched and stressed.' And no wonder they lost faith in the U.S. political establishment."
