Why Trump Won The Election

In Soapbox by Nate Clark

Why did Donald Trump win the election for President of the United States? Because he tricked middle- and working-class voters into thinking he represents them.

This video expresses my thoughts about what I perceive to be Donald Trumps greatest asset: his ability to tutn a catch-phrase into a mass-marketing weapon. Repeated phrases – even ones with ZERO actionable meaning, such as “Make America Great Again” – are the key to a great marketing campaign. This is true even in politics, apparently. Or especially.

It’s time for the DNC to shift it’s focus away from wealthy elites and toward middle- and working-class voters. If liberals are to win in future races, we must embody a truely progressive populist perspective.
