Fascism still very much in play
all the sturm and drang about vote fraud put aside, as it should be, Trump lost the election with white people in the suburbs.
But I wouldn't make the mistake of believing that just because most of those folks have nice things they are engaged in some high level of moral discernment.
Mostly just that Trump was embarrassing to them. If a kinder, gentler fascist- who looks and talks like somebody they wouldn't blackball from the country club comes along, he/she will recapture them.

And, the emotional manipulation factor aside, Trump was just plain incompetent.
While those suburban folks may not be operating on a higher moral plain, they are mostly competent at something or believe themselvs to be so.
