4. But most of my friends are working class!

And too many of them went for Trump. But you sure are correct about that 70K comment. The few big-money acquaintances I have all went for Trump. That didn't surprise me.

What did surprise me, disappointed is a better word, is how many of my working class friends went for Trump.

I suppose my observation here could be an outlier of sorts. But if I'm on to something, the Democratic Party needs to adjust its message a bit. Social justice AND good jobs!
