Reader’s Comment of the Day: Elites hold the common people in contempt


In response to Leslie Loftis: Issue-free Trump has won over America’s angry evangelicans, Colkitto03 wrote:

I think you are spot on. I do think the the political and media elites across the western world lost touch with the common populations and they seem to hold them in such contempt. In fact, their attitude is somewhat sneering. I think your three words “they feel forsaken” hits the nail on the head.

Both the USA and the UK feel so very much like oligarchies. Social mobility has stalled in both countries for decades now. The GOP only have themselves to blame for the Trump phenomenon. They are reaping what they sowed.
