Where Trump got all those new voters [View all]

Analysis here.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/01/05/trump-lost-he-won-millions-new-voters-where-did-they-come/?arc404=true

I do think a huge part of his appeal was for less educated working class people who thought the pandemic was overblown and just wanted to get back to work. His re-open everything message must have been very appealing to them, but obviously it was shortsighted given the awful consequences now-- the growing death toll.

Noteworthy to me is he got 1.5 million new votes in California, especially in around LA. I think this might explain better why they are having such a large COVID19 outbreak there.
