Most voters had an unfavorable opinion of Donald Trump and were troubled by his comments. Many voted for him anyway. If you think the fact that he won makes even less sense, I'll explain here why the reason for his victory is clear. The reason it happened in my home state, West Virginia, is essentially the same as why I believe it happened everywhere else—and why it should matter to you, no matter where you live.

I'm typing through a lot of frustration as I see voters in places like West Virginia called everything except informed. Before you assume anything, this is not a defense of Donald Trump or an assault on Hillary Clinton. I'm a pragmatic guy, and I'm only telling you why Tuesday happened in places like where I live, which is to say most of America.
