That is important in the context of repeated suggestions and even explicit claims that this was claimed about all of Trump’s supporters. And even that support of Trump itself is what made one a deplorable. The is simply untrue. I continue to be surporsed how regularly people post things that aren’t.
You would have to find a post that says this to jog my memory. It just doesn’t sound like anything that I would say. I have no way of knowing the actual number, and would not be disposed to making one up. It is more likely that I posed a question, or raised a possibiliuty in light of some other, related data.
I have edited out deflections and repeat the actual question.
Trump may have, and in fact did run on a variety of ideas. But he choose a slogan that has a clear meaning. It is not just: let’s have higher employment, let’s make better trade deals, l … it was Make America Great AGAIN - a slogan explicitly but elliptically harkened back to some earlier time in American history. What is that time period?
With even the merest modicum of empathy, it is not hard to see that groups people whose freer and fuller integration into the fabric of America life is a relatively recent phenomenon may hear this as a call that threatens the progress that mainstream America has made in seeking greater equity for all.
