All of the above... and below... It seems that each of us has an insight in one area of a vast panoramic of the past election with all its supporting data, facts, hunches, analyses, etc. When in fact, all of the factors come together on that day of elections, and produce the final result. IMO, we all need to push ourselves, neighbors and friends and families to get educated in the history of our singular nation, and back only the CANDIDATES who most closely fit that history.
I for one will not give one more dime to the RNC. I don't know their motives. I don't even know whose motives to discover, so I have given and will continue to give only to CANDIDATES with what I believe have the best qualities.
Pretty basic stuff, right?
