Re: focusing on how people 'feel'
>>And yet the Trump phenomenon was NOT emotion-based
As I understand it, people voting for Trump are hoping to break the a cycle of non-responsive government. This last election reminds me of an earlier race in Minnesota where I live. Here the frustrated population elected Jesse Ventura as governor. It may not be "purely" emotional but how well thought out was frustrated voting? In the case of Jess, not very. TDB how it works out with Trump (and Brexit). I just have to hope for the best for all people involved.
