It is worth noting that both candidates are the most unpopular in polling history, although Trump is in a considerably worse position. So how did we come to this? It is easy to liken Trump’s support to the British vote for Brexit, people are angry and don’t like or respect the political class. The Republicans rejected the most experienced field in history in their primaries with 16 former Governors, Senators and other worthies rejected for Trump. The Democrats opted for a very shaky coronation with no major candidate challenging Hillary, although Bernie Sanders, who wasn’t even a member of the party until recently, gave her a big scare. Both parties are polarizing, as is the American public as a whole. Gridlock in Washington is a function of an America unsure of what it wants and when it does, it comes up with completely different answers.
