"The last 4 years have been deeply traumatizing as we have watched our nation in the stranglehold of a maniacal, dictatorial and compulsively deceptive president. But It is worth examining the relationship that Trump has with his voters, to understand why he won the 2016 election & why he still commands such fervent loyalty. Trump’s voters have a transactional relationship with the president that is practical, powerful, and surprisingly instructional to the rest of us. It is possible and perhaps likely that Biden will win based on many new polls that paint a favorable outcome for the Democrat. And indeed, for the future of the nation and especially women, immigrants, and people of color, it is imperative that Biden beats Trump. But if he does cinch the presidency, it will be in spite of his choice to offer character over concrete policies, not because of it."
