swing states

You think you voted for Trump, so that he can "shake up" Washington to your benefit. Simple, right? Not so fast. Here is what you really voted for, based on the long-track record of the incoming power elite.
Trump is very aware of the unfocused anger in the Midwest, and is working hard to use that to get votes. If he takes the swing states of Ohio and Pennsylvania, it will be because of that insight.
When Donald Trump first announced his candidacy for President in June of 2015, I like most people laughed it off.
