Spot on. I get the feeling that after this election — more than perhaps any other recent one, there needs to be a real effort at repair. There are, as you lay out, a lot of people who feel left out, left behind, and disrespected. Whether they are objectively right about that or not, we need to find a way to have two things made clear to them:

  1. We hear you, loud and clear.
  2. We’re going to work with you to make sure you no longer feel that way.

The trick is, how does that happen? These people are so sure that it won’t under Hillary, that they’re voting for a guy who doesn’t even have enthusiastic backing from his own party. That says something.
