It’s been a few weeks since the US election. Many journalists and politicians have analyzed the results and declared various reasons contributing to the Trump victory. In my opinion, it’s simple. A large population base felt disconnected, unheard and frustrated. They wanted change at any cost.
It was no secret that one of Hillary’s challenges was her difficulty in connecting with the voters. She was polished, prepared and knowledgeable. Her facts were correct (most of the time) and she had loads of experience but the emotional connection was lacking. Donald on the other hand, ignited emotions and called people to action with rhetoric and falsehoods. Rational thinking gets trumped (no pun intended) by emotions whether we like it or not.
