Charles Camosy: "Trump Won Because College-Educated Americans Are Out Of Touch"

I'd bet a substantial amount of money that there's a whole lot of truth in this.
It should (but probably doesn't) go without saying that this doesn't mean that Trump is right. That's obviously a very different issue. But there just can't be much doubt that the worldview of the average humanities/social-science professor and that of the average (normal) American are extremely different. I often suspect that the view of the average professor might be less realistic/defensible than that of the average [person]. The [former] accepts quite a lot of stuff that's obviously sheer fantasy. But I'm probably in no position to speak with any authority on such a comparison. [lol fixed]

Not sure that 'less realistic / defensible than' is reflexive there Winston. Gonna have to take issue with you re logic of relations.
