The neoliberal era in the United States ended with a neofascist bang.
At the end of the day Obama is wolf in sheep's clothing. Exactly like HRC he has a public and a private position.He is a gifted speaker who knows how to say all the right, progressive liberal things to get people to go along much better than HRC ever did. But that lip service is where his progressive views begin and stop. It's the very reason none of his promises never translated into actions and I will argue that he was the biggest and smoothest scam artist to enter the white house who got even though that wholly opposed centre-right policies, to flip and support them vehemently. Even when he had the Presidency, House and Senate, he never once introduced any progressive liberal policy. He didn't need Republican support to do it, yet he never even tried.
Most of Trump's voters are gun-obsessed, pathologically super-patriotic, racist and opposed to public healthcare. Their feelings and thoughts have not changed at all. He will have won some protest-votes too. But he won less than McCain and Romney in total. This election has not been decided by support for Trump. This election has been decided by lack of support for Clinton. Even though she won more votes than Trump, she did not win the electoral college. I think that is because she did not pursue a progressive agenda. Fearing to offend any reactionaries who would not vote for her anyhow, she reduced her message to some meaningless phrases. Her campaign was terrible. And probably she also was the wrong candidate to represent determination, hope and courage - after thirty years in politics posing as a new kid on the block is a bit difficult.
