When I see something like this



and reflect on Trump's approval rating (53% disapprove, 43% approve) I think results last night had less to do with Trump than with candidates in red states (Texas, North Dakota, Florida).  If this is what appeals to a majority of the country then I am truly always going to be in the minority.
