From Fareed Zakaria

“Many have argued that Republicans have been able to work this magic trick by dangling social issues in front of working-class voters, who fall for the bait and lose sight of the fact that they are voting against their own interests,” Fareed says.
“But what if people are not being fooled? What if people are actually motivated far more deeply by issues surrounding religion, race and culture than they are by economics? There’s increasing evidence that Trump's base supports him because it feels a deep emotional, cultural and class affinity for him.”
