I have long been convinced that this election is a "class election." Not a liberal vs conservative split. Rather an Elites vs the Common Man election. A split that splits the parties. Families. Friends. People who have lost touch with their working class roots turn to the elitists who scorn the people from which they came. A common human reaction. You see it all the time.
There is also a very strong unstated racial subtext. Well much less unstated than usual. The injection of Black Lives Matters and the blatant racism of Barack Obama has divided the country in a manner that we have not seen in a long time. Black Lives Matters has demanded a reaction to their demands. Well they are getting it. In spades. So to speak.
Of course this is not only my opinion. Many other people feel the same way.
BBC agrees in article about the election:
"A much more useful lens through which to view this election is that of class. This isn't exactly a class war - that's too European for the US - but it is a class election. And indeed a race election.
