"He won because he took the time to listen to les Deplorables." From The American Conservative and the keyboard of C Bradley Thompson, yesterday.
A quote from toward the end of the article:
This is Trump’s simple genius. In a nation of the people, by the people, and for the people, Trump found and took the time to listen to les Deplorables. He heard, saw, and sympathized with the moral malaise and downward mobility of provincial America. Trump not only listened to the unwashed, he stood up for them. He fought back. He attacked, insulted, and denounced the nattering nabobs♠ of both parties.Hat tip to the InstaPundit.

♠ "Nabob—a person of conspicuous wealth or high status."
