OR, THREE OF THE SIX BLIND MEN ATTEMPT TO DESCRIBE THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM
My sense is that all three of these blind men have a piece of the puzzle. (Otherwise, why would I direct your attention to them?_
That said, were I focusing on a strategy for further research into the nature of Homo Trumpus, I would be most interested in knowing how far we can take the Wilkinson hypothesis: that a lot of people voted for Trump because they were desperate to keep their source of livelihood in a pandemic, and just wanted to tough it out while we all wait for a vaccine.
To the extent that economic desperation in a pandemic explains much of the Trump vote, those of us in secure economic positions can fault these voters for putting their livelihoods over lethal risk to the general public. But what would we do if we had no money in the stock market and no means of putting food on the table except by going to work this morning?
