There is a vast array of options between antagonizing and sympathizing.

See what you did there? My girlfriend is also a user of Stereogum and it had happened many times to comment on her laptop or my computer with her username on. And it will keep happening fortunately. But you prefer the shortest explanation, which hey is alright and perfectly fun for me.

I can agree with that, sounds plausible enough to me. But it does not explain fully how almost 50 million people voted for him.

But I think they do. Or at least I suspect so. As I said you seem tombe the only one in this conversation with certitudes.

So not winning three times in a row has been a constant in both parties the last 70 years or so.

Black people and latinos voted in him too.

Very interesting take. Let''s also not forget that Democrats never won three times in a row. Or have they?

Trump is awful and I fear that horrible things will come with his presidency. But I'm talking about his voters.

My point was to start a conversation and not a conversion.

This is narrow-thinking. First because a lot of crimes against humanity happened in the last 8 years. Second, because these people who voted on him don't give a them: this is so abstract and far-away from them when they have to deal with unemployment and being unable to provide for their families. I think a lot of research has to be done in order to gasp what makes decent people to vote in Trump.

Nobody's asking for an apology, Dan. I think that most of them want to disrupt a system in which they are constantly marginalized or ignored. Suddenly they made a difference, using the tools they had at hand. Antagonizing them will lead to no good.

There you go: it took probably Trump to win the election for many Americans to realize that Samders was the right candidate for the Democrats. If Hillary had won, he would never had a chance to win a future nomination. Now, I think it's possible.

Point in case: this election. Almost every media pointed these horrible connections between Trump and white supramecists. Did it stop him to win the election. I'm on your side guys and I understand your revolt and anger. But I do think I have a point here.

Exactly. But thinking about what drove to these disasters is the only way to avoid them.

Well, too bad because I still haven't given up on you. I'm not talking about Trump, but about the heterogenous mass of US citizens that have voted on him. Your position is arrogant because you refuse to acknowledge any other intent or logic in the choice of your fellow citizens than the ones you keep pointing out.

Of course there is and I'm not saying that we should ignore that. But it wasn't neo-nazis and the Klan that made his election possible, it was in spite of them that he was. Almost 50 millions US citizens voted for him, I think it's time to search for more inclusive answers for the phenomenon.

It saddens me to see that Gum, and other media outliers, keep treating Trump voters as insane people ("It's pretty hard for anybody in their right mind to take [that Trump will soon be POTUS]). I think that this kind of behaviour has played an important role in his election, mostly to those who do not see any of their daily concerns and tribulations being problematised in the media.

Get well, Kanye, never mind the music, think about your health and family.

I keep forgetting to name her fabulous record as one of my favourites of the year. I am so sorry, Cate. Crab Days has a spot on my Top 10 definitely. The new track is dope.

These fucking dumb nazis couldn't even draw a fucking a proper swastika: first try is just wrong and the second one is dye in the wool ridiculous.

I'm 41 and I listened to it the same day OK Computer was released: both CDs bought on my first trip to London. I have a shelf with about one hundred CDs where I put what I consider my all-time favourite albums. This one is on it.

Boards of Canada had already released records before Entroducing. To infere an influence seems a bit of a stretch.
