Does that signify a wider trend though, or was it just the perfect storm of Trump pandering to a demographic Hillary thought she had locked up and didn't bother campaigning to? By which I mean, did either party actually learn anything from the last election cycle? (Press X to doubt)
No, nobody learned what went on in 2016.
Clinton fucked up majorly with the working class during her campaign. That retraining the coal miners shit was just such a fucking self-goal. Sanders does somewhat understand what's going on and then he keeps making gaffes.
The GOP tried to triangulate even before 2016 because they understood that they needed Hispanic voters due to demographic changes. This was killed immediately. Now they're set up to die permanently in about 30 years, but in the meantime they might manage to outlaw abortion!
