Trump And The Media, Chris Anderson

Politicians Clown Around: When Politics Divide, Annabelle White

Listening to the stereotypes, Republicans presumably were the only ones to vote for this man—but according to BBC, 9 percent of Democrats, those who identified as registered Democrats, voted for Trump.
