13. This is good classification

and it's good that you identified where we can make inroads. Trump got states and voters that were blue in past elections. The map has been changing so there are some regional differences in despair and xenophobia. We should also acknowledge that there are many voters who don't put much thought or research into their votes, they just wanted something different or thought it would be entertaining to see how crazy things can get. And there are many on our side who for whatever reason did not vote.

The self gougers are an interesting bunch. I have encountered some who hate diversity so much they gladly voted for Trump to cut the very agencies they work for, as in their careers are are at risk.

I hope our party aggressively courts voters and listens to them and does whatever it takes to win back some congressional seats in the midterms.
