In her latest column for the New York Post, Salena Zito gives a reminder of why Donald Trump became president and why the media was so off base in predicting the outcome of the 2016 election.

The problem, she says, for the media is that the same forces that drove Trump voters to the polls in 2016 are still at play.

“They are, in large part, still getting things wrong, not only by failing to understand a new group of voters who put President Donald Trump in the White House but also by ignoring why they voted the way they did.”

The key to that paragraph is “why they did.” Many voters were undoubtedly uncomfortable with Trump as a personality but cast their vote for him because he represented the frustrations that they share.

It will be interesting to see what electoral factors are at play in 2020 and whether Trump can wield the same style to victory.
