How Stupid Are They? From The Economist

 I always read Lexington and the obituaries in The Economist.

If I feel like it and have time I read a lot more of the issue each week.

This week Lexington was in Youngstown.


He, or she (they don't divulge any of that) was back where he or she spent some time in 2016.

trump won Youngstown in 2016.

I guess he's going to win it again this time.

Here's are some quotes from some of the construction workers that Lexington interviewed in 2016 and again last week.

The quotes are from last week.

Concerning the job donnie has done:

“He’s done a great job, he’s got everyone back to work. I’m pretty much 100% for him,” said Kyle, a 30-year-old electrician. “He shoots his mouth off but at least that shows he’s honest,” said Jason, a pipe-fitter, who said he especially liked Mr. Trump’s commitment to reducing the national debt. “He’s done more for our country than the past ten presidents put together,” said an older builder, Jeff, skimming wet concrete on a new road. “He’s made—who is it, China or Japan?—pay our farmers billions of dollars. He got health care done, which the Democrats could never do. He built the wall.”

When my fellow citizens are that misinformed, or purposely delusional, I cannot retain any hope for this country.
