    ..they launched campaigns to destroy public-sector bargaining rights, defund unions through right-to-work laws, and privatise public education through vouchers

    An interesting take on why Trump was elected and who some of his backers are.

    To me the policies of some of his supporters comes across as some of the raving of the most rabid bits of boards or the internet in general, individuals with the finance to pursue fantasies about crushing unions abolishing welfare etc, or maybe it is a genuine political position.

    Is it really as simple as that?
