5. I don't think Trump won in 2016 due to red meat

I think he won in the rust belt and midwest because those people were hurting and wanted to shake things up. Now that Trump has not delivered to them as promised they want to shake things up again. And I think they will keep doing that until someone actually helps them by bringing back good jobs and better wages.

I think Trump really screwed up with them by campaigning on fear and xenophobia to get out what he calls his "base" rather than addressing their problems.
