Trump’s idiocracy

All the smarty pants establishment talking heads didn’t count on Trump getting the nomination. So now they’re all trying to figure out what they missed and its all smoke and mirrors missing the real reason. Of course they should’ve known that gutting education funds all these years to give tax breaks to the rich would have some effect. As Jonathan Chait so eloquently puts it: 

“Here’s the factor I think everybody missed: The Republican Party turns out to be filled with idiots. Far more of them than anybody expected. […]  His appeal operates not at a low intellectual level but at a sub-intellectual level.”
