Trump Agnostics Are Central to Dems’ Future

Decisive votes for Trump were cast not by the passionately committed but by voters who viewed both Trump and Clinton negatively, EJ Dionne writes. “The media exit poll found that only 38 percent of those who participated in the 2016 election had a favorable view of Trump. That’s the base. The contest was settled by those who viewed both Trump and Hillary Clinton negatively. These pox-on-both-houses voters made up 18 percent of the electorate, and went 47 percent to 30 percent for Trump over Clinton, with most of the rest opting for third-party choices. These are the Trump agnostics. They are central to our political future.”
