Asimov got it right
There is a cult of ignorance in the USA, it is fostered by the GOP. Keep the masses angry, stupid and believing in things that have no basis in fact, and they'll vote for the party which does them the least good. How the GOP, given its policies and who their backers are, gets votes from people with an income of 6 figures (closer to 7) or less in any sane world is just beyond belief. They do however, and the blame can only be laid at the feet of ignorance and stupidity. It is beyond doubt by now that Clinton will secure the Democrat nomination, the Republican one is still up for grabs with the most reasonable candidate (and he's not that good) miles behind Trump, in the election itself Clinton should romp it. That should is a big one, what with the gerrymandering and disenfranchisement that is rife in some states.
