I think the thing that gets me is that I knew full well that Trump would take WV- I’d been saying for a year he would take WV by 30 points, and the margin turned out to be bigger. What I don’t understand is how people were so wrong about other states. Did your state vote the way you thought it would?
Second, I don’t understand how future campaigns will work. Truth and facts and basic common decency clearly do not matter. Policy positions clearly do not matter. It honestly appears that the only things that matter are jingoism, race, and identity.
Third, I hear a lot of “we need to stay strong and fight,” and we do, but at the same time, we need to sit back and reassess. The Democratic party is in shambles. I’m going to occupy myself with the new house and my daily life, and see where we go from here. Acting out now would just be pointless and accomplish nothing.
On the other hand, I did give 50 bucks to Planned Parenthood this morning.
Everything just feels so upside down right now.
