People bought it because they know something needs to change and they weren’t getting that from anywhere else by the time the general election rolled around.
This is where I think you’re dead wrong. I think people bought into Trump because they had had enough change and wanted things to go back 30 or 40 years. Even people I know who aren’t racist freaked the fuck out over a black President, because that represented a tidal wave of change at their doorstep. They want things to go back to when their neighbors didn’t speak another language and they could get a good job at the plant and health care wasn’t so expensive and every other thing that they’ve idealized about in the past even though half of it is BS. This is what Trump promised them. Sure, he failed to deliver, but admitting that is admitting they were duped, which they will refuse to believe. You want change, I want change, but there are a hundred million people in this country who don’t want any change at all. It’s why so many old people voted for Trump. He promised them things would stay as they are until they die. They don’t want to have to adapt in their 70’s. Who would?
Now look at Obama. He ran on a message of change, sure. That’s a lot easier to do when the economy is collapsing and we’re facing a great depression. Right now things are relatively good for most people, mostly because they haven’t encountered things like crushing medical debt or student loans or losing their job or a dozen other factors that they’re going to face sooner or later but they don’t have to face it right now. Right now, change is a hard sell.
