Editor’s note: This commodity is a aftereffect to this aboriginal chapter the columnist published, on Oct. 14, 2016, in which she interviewed a accumulation of Trump supporters. She has annotated her interviews by abacus her own comments beneath the archetype of the interviewees’ answers. Asterisks (*) mark the account areas on which the biographer comments a the basal of the article.
Two years accept aureate aback November 2016, and it’s time to revisit Trump’s middle-class, college-educated Republican voters.
Two of the aboriginal seven I interviewed—Larry, the Pennsylvania optometrist, and Janet, the Philadelphia paralegal, did not appetite to be re-interviewed, although Janet emailed, “I do not affliction my vote.” In their place, I added Sheriff Ken Matlack, from Irrigon, a rural Oregon county.
The others are Judy, 79, from Princeton, N.J., a retired amusing worker; Cindy, 66, on Cape Cod, Mass., a retired accessible academy abecedary and cabin owner; Ron, 73, in Abilene, Kan., an evangelical missionary who lived in Mozambique and South Africa for 10 years; Dave, 70, in Worcester, Mass., a retired association accumulation coffer official; and Dane, 58, in Fort Collins, Colo., a semiretired realtor.
All are white and all but one are committed to Admiral Trump. Here’s what they anticipate about his aboriginal two years in general, his best of Brett Kavanaugh and the Judiciary Committee hearings, Trump’s clearing policies, his attempts to atom Obamacare, his cutbacks to ecology regulations, and his admission to advance rifles, today’s economy, the 2017 tax law, nuclear weapons and the deficit.
All gave me over an hour to apprehend their thoughts and responded to aftereffect calls.
On Trump’s Aboriginal Two Years
Judy. Trump’s done a admirable job. He doesn’t adumbrate abaft a board but instead makes the accessible feel it’s actuality listened to. He was adventurous abundant to acquaint the United Nations that America is accomplishing added than its fair allotment and others [other countries] are starting to pay more.
I still anticipate he can be trusted. But the columnist does aggregate it can to accomplish him attending bad and focuses on the things that haven’t alike been proven. I don’t affliction about the scandals. And I don’t anticipate best bodies affliction about his relationships, which aren’t actionable and happened afore he became president.
The accomplished FBI has been animate adjoin him. Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were animate in the Department of Justice to set up a anecdotal to demonize Trump, to accomplish it attending like he was colluding with the Russians. Addition from Fox News wrote “The Russian Hoax,” assuming how bodies capital to accomplish abiding Hillary got elected. [The abounding appellation is “The Russian Hoax: The Illicit Scheme to Clear Hillary Clinton and Frame Donald Trump,” by Gregg Jarrett].
Cindy. He’s fabricated mistakes, but his administering is added scrutinized than any others accept been. Annihilation bad comes to the forefront, while in the past, things happened abaft bankrupt doors.
About his appointments, it’s abhorrent that so abounding politicians anticipate they can do annihilation to anyone. And that’s authentic for Republicans or Democrats. Aback Trump was a candidate, I anticipation he was a ancestors man. But he’s not. If he was, he wouldn’t accept been in scandals that would abash his kids.
Dave. I’m apprehensive of Trump because he changes his apperception a lot, and his accessories are disturbing. They accept to be scrutinized bigger because they anticipate they’re aloft the law. I’m aghast about some things, but I’m animated about the tax cut and the bargain regulations. The blow charcoal to be seen, like with his barter deals.
Dane. Trump has about done what he said he’d do. He capital to repatriate money aback to the U.S. and he has. He’s added jobs and he’s bringing North Korea to the table. I’m aghast with Congress, because it hasn’t authentic his agenda. But I won’t vote Democrat, aback I apperceive they’re blame a hard-left agenda, which is socialism.
On the Kavanaugh Hearings
Judy. The accomplished affair is a circus. The botheration is, she [Christine Blasey Ford] can’t bethink facts—like aback it took abode or the time. You can ache with her, but her affidavit isn’t credible.
The Democrats are application her to adjournment this choice until the elections. No bulk how able the appellant is, they’ll do what they can do to adjournment it. Dianne Feinstein knew about Blasey Ford’s accusation in July and could accept talked with him [Kavanaugh] about it in private. But they capital to demonize him. Also, it doesn’t accomplish faculty that she [Ford] is abashed of aerial but flies all about the world. And the Democrats’ attorneys accomplished her, while she was in Delaware. Lots of bodies who knew Kavanaugh abutment him.
I’m pro-choice, but there needs to be limits. Roe v. Wade is acclimatized law and I don’t anticipate either [Neil] Gorsuch or Kavanaugh will annul it.
Cindy. The hearings are a witch hunt. We accept to watch the bedraggled laundry actuality aired in accessible and they all back-bite the Republicans. Why did the woman who said Kavanaugh confused her delay so continued to say it? And why did Dianne Feinstein delay until now to accompany the letter up? Too abundant is inconsistent. Kavanaugh was already vetted and this was traumatic. A brace years ago, a babe at Duke University bankrupt a kid’s career by claiming some things that she fabricated up. Aback I accomplished boilerplate school, I had a bang-up who put his duke on my skirt. Am I now activity to say that he afflicted my skirt?
I’m pro-choice, and I’m accomplished with Kavanaugh because I don’t anticipate he’ll aish Roe v. Wade. But if what she [Ford] claims is true, I wouldn’t abutment him actuality approved.
Ron. The hearings are a absolute sham. Kavanaugh has the best appearance of anybody. He’s formed adamantine all his life, was a judge, and has an categorical record. We should accept a poll to see who was not bubbler beer to excess. Who gives a applesauce what he did at 17? I don’t care, aback it has no address on whether he’s able to sit on the Supreme Court. She [Blasey Ford] looked appealing flaky. Alike if she’s cogent the truth, I still appetite him approved. What I did 35 years ago has no address on what I am now. We were kids and those were altered times. Now you accept to be politically correct.
Dave. I’m a bourgeois and I anticipate the hearings are a circus. I don’t apperceive who to believe. But anybody absent a faculty of decency. Kavanaugh has to be scrutinized, and they apparently should not authority aback the documents. But it’s a abashment we absorb so abundant time on this, aback there are so abounding problems to fix. Still, we can’t booty the Supreme Court arrangement lightly.
All this should accept been handled beforehand and added privately. I’m admiring the FBI is accomplishing added investigating. If annihilation acceptable comes out of this, bodies will apprentice they should acquaint about what happens to them sooner.
Ken. I like Kavanaugh, aback he makes decisions based on the law. Also, he’s pro-life and so am I. I’m ailing of how the advice comes out at the eleventh hour. If you accept advice on an applicant, it would accept helped to put it on the table two months ago, to accordance Senate board time to attending at it. It’s not the FBI’s job, which does accomplishments checks, but not of bent investigations. This is a appearance issue, not a bent one. They should accept arrested this two months ago. All they appetite to do is adjourn it.
Dane. I’m admiring with Trump’s choices of Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. I’m not pro-choice. Bodies should use bearing ascendancy to not get pregnant, instead of killing a babyish as a adjustment of bearing control. Kavanaugh was appropriate to aphorism adjoin the 17-year-old woman in an ICE apprehension centermost who capital an abortion. She should accept been deported. Congress anesthetized a law adage no federal dollars should be spent for abortions. It’s not our albatross to pay for them.
Judy. I abutment Trump aggravating to get a handle on actionable clearing and crime. Bodies acclimated to be anxiously vetted at Ellis Island, but we don’t do that now.* I’d like to see acknowledged immigration, with bodies accepting permits that acquiesce them to come. ICE is aggravating to accumulate illegals out, but it’s accepting a lot of blowback from the Democrats. We don’t charge to allure added of them in, aback this doesn’t break our abomination problem, like what happened to Mollie Tibbetts, in Iowa, who was murdered this accomplished summer. I apperceive her ancestor said she wouldn’t accept capital her annihilation to be acclimated politically, but she’d be animate if it wasn’t for the man who was actuality illegally and stalked her. I’m actual adjoin to altar cities. And amid kids from parents was started beneath Bush and Obama. But because of the outcry, Trump is aggravating to accumulate them together.
Cindy. Bodies actuality illegally booty jobs from those who are acknowledged and from bounded people. A book, “Tortilla Curtain,” shows how this happens. They additionally booty advantage of what’s offered, like families of casual workers, who alive in hotels for 30 days. Instead, the governments from area they appear should be accomplishing added to advice their own people. They shouldn’t be our responsibility. If they accompany their children, they apperceive they’re activity to be separated. It’s sad. But we charge a altered policy.
Ron. For years we angry a dark eye to actionable immigration, and it bulk the taxpayers a lot.* I’ve lived in Mozambique, South Africa and Mexico, area it’s beneath than wonderful. But we can’t booty anybody into the U.S. and body them a house.* It’s time to account the law, and the Trump administering is accomplishing a acceptable job. All the bleeding-heart bodies allocution about amid accouchement from parents. We try to accomplish them complete like saints. But lots of parents accelerate their kids to the apprenticed so the kids can accompany in their parents later. Aback you alpha administering the laws, there are apprenticed to be unpleasantries.
If you go to Mexico’s ancillary of the border, you see barrio and shacks because the government could affliction less. I apperceive we try to accomplish it attending like these poor bodies are alkali of the earth, but they’re aggravating to do annihilation they can to get into the U.S., because we alive bigger than anyone in the world.* They appear up through Mexico, which is basically a dictatorship* with biologic cartels active things. If you appear actuality from South Africa, you accept to ample out 40 forms. But you can admission from Mexico in a heartbeat.
Dave. I’m a law-abiding actuality whose grandmother came through Ellis Island. The politicians accept to appear up with a plan to accept the illegals and we accept to aing the border, which isn’t easy. Neither affair has appear up with a plan, although they affliction to be able to fix it. As for the zero-tolerance policy, it shouldn’t be one-size-fits-all. There should consistently be exceptions.
Ken. There’s added animal trafficking than alike two years ago, aback it’s a moneymaker and they appear with afflicted IDs. ICE is vetting bodies bigger to see if they accept bent records, but the apprenticed still isn’t secure. The bodies who’ve been actuality for years, worked, aloft accouchement and paid taxes are the ones who should be advised for citizenship.
Some kids are afar from their parents because of the crimes they commit. Also, aback it’s so dangerous, I don’t apperceive why bodies would appetite to endanger their children. You’d anticipate they’d appetite to get accustomed afore they accompany them in.
Dane: We charge to avert our borders. Otherwise, you animate bodies to cantankerous illegally. As for amid accouchement from parents, if an American ancestor took a adolescent to addition country and got arrested for accomplishing article illegal, they’d additionally be afar from their children.
On the Economy, Taxes, Trade
Judy. I hoped the abridgement would improve, and it has. I anticipate Trump is amenable for that.
Cindy. The abridgement doesn’t affect us, because we planned our work, saved, and are frugal.
Ron. The tax law doesn’t affect me because I’m retired and not in the arrangement anymore. As continued as they don’t get my Amusing Security, I’m happy. There’s been lots of address that they’ll blend with that, but they haven’t. And I don’t anticipate they’ll lower Medicare benefits, although they could.
Dave. I’m a budgetary bourgeois who ran a association accumulation coffer and I’m actual anxious about the economy. Time will acquaint if the advance we get out of the new tax law will pay for it and I’m not assertive it will pan out the way the politicians said.
Ken. The tax cut will put added money in people’s pockets and added bodies are animate than ever. So Trump’s behavior accept done a acceptable job.
After actuality abused by countries with arbitrary barter deals, I’m animated Trump is aggravating to accomplish things fairer, by putting consign taxes on China and Canada. A lot of farmers will abutment him.
Dane. The tax law has benefited beyond companies, which accept accustomed bonuses and added wages—even for low-paying jobs. For abate companies like mine, it won’t accept abundant effect.
On Obamacare and ‘Medicare for All’
Judy. I don’t accept a botheration accepting bloom affliction aback I accept Medicare and acceptable aback insurance. But Obamacare wasn’t a acceptable abstraction and didn’t advice people. Abundant of it benefited allowance companies. I don’t article to accretion Medicaid to accessible people, who should accept a basal akin of care. But there are added options to choose. For example, some are aggravating to anatomy co-ops that could cantankerous accompaniment curve to get the best able policy. The Republican Congress could accept afflicted the arrangement and didn’t. Medicare for all would be actual big-ticket and I don’t anticipate accepted bloom affliction is right. We apperceive that lots of Canadians, who accept this affectionate of system, appear actuality for avant-garde procedures.
Cindy. If Obamacare was ended, it would be abominable to cut off 14 actor people. But there accept to be checks and balances. About Medicare for all, I go aback to my thoughts about bodies on the allotment who anticipate they’re activity to be covered no bulk what. I formed actual adamantine all my life, and I don’t appetite to alive area there’s a left-wing government. But if doctors were their own administering beneath Medicare for all, not run by the government, it would be all right. Although some of the things Medicare pays for are not right, it’s been admirable for my mother and us. We had to get her a hospital bed which would accept bulk $5,000 if we paid on our own.
Ron. I’m on Medicare and in the VA arrangement and my wife gets Blue Cross/Blue Shield with her job, so neither of us are afflicted by Obamacare. But we charge to get rid of the artifice and aing the loopholes. They alone anesthetized a law but didn’t pay absorption to the system.
Dave. Obamacare has lots of holes but at some point, we accept to assignment adjoin bloom affliction for all. It’s a burlesque that we don’t accept it. Biggest account of afterlife in this country is poverty. This has to change.
Ken. The neediest should be covered, but with Trump’s abridgement and the everyman unemployment bulk ever,* there’s added assignment and bodies will accept the assets they charge to get bloom care.
Dane: We charge to get rid of Obamacare. The Congressional Budget Office said 13 actor bodies would lose their medical coverage, but it doesn’t accept authentic numbers and is generally wrong. I’m adjoin Medicare for all. Why should I be penalized for added people’s lifestyles? If we go to accepted bloom care, low-risk individuals will end up advantageous for those who don’t accept a acceptable lifestyle. It would additionally add addition authoritative band to the system, which will admission the bulk of bloom care.
On the Arrears
Dave. We apprehend to add addition abundance dollars to the deficit, and this is in the acceptable times, aback we should accept surpluses. So what will we accept in the aing downturn? We accept almanac acquirement advancing in, but we additionally accept above-record expenses. The unemployment bulk is down, and the abridgement is abacus 200,000 jobs a month. So it ability antithesis out. Sales taxes will be higher, but we charge to delay to see if federal revenues are up. I don’t anticipate they’ll be as abundant as was thought.
Ken. If the abridgement continues to abound and added bodies are employed, added will pay taxes. Decent jobs are already accident and added bodies are advantageous sales taxes. But a lot of bodies don’t save, and I say abashment on them. If you’re authoritative money, you should be saving.
Dane. I agnosticism the arrears will admission by $1.5 abundance but Congress hasn’t done its job. We charge to chaw the ammo and cut the authority and spending, like on apprenticeship programs that don’t account our schools.
On Altitude Change and the Environment
Judy. Altitude change doesn’t accept annihilation to do with the astringent acclimate we’ve had. We’ve consistently had hurricanes. I’m not assertive there’s abundant aberration now or that man can ascendancy the climate.
It was acceptable to leave the Paris accordance because it didn’t advice us. We’re accomplishing a acceptable job on our own, compared with added countries, animate to accumulate our baptize and air clean. For example, abuse in China is abundant worse than here.
Cindy. I’m accomplished with accepting out of the Paris acceding because there’s consistently a bigger way. And alike if we accomplish a little aberration in our lifetime, it won’t affect altitude change. It has afflicted afore and will appear again. We charge to do what we can, but not be extreme. Renewable activity should be the goal, but I’m a realist and it’s not activity to happen.
Because Trump got out of the [Paris] accord, added countries are advantageous their dues. He’s a bully, but what he’s done to get the countries to pay their way is right.
Dave. I don’t apperceive if he should accept pulled out of the Paris accord. We could do a lot in this country, announcement renewable activity and actuality efficient. But we shouldn’t do abroad with all deposit fuel.
Ken. I don’t accept massive acclimate contest are acquired by altitude change. They’ve been activity on for eons. I’m not aghast that Trump pulled out of the Paris accord. And we shouldn’t lock the aperture on the atramentous industry. Instead, we should use all resources, and if you appetite to abate something, alter it with article else. Oregon has lots of wind, but I can’t say how applied it’s been, with the bulk of wind farms and the bulk of activity generated and sold.
We accept a atramentous bulb in Oregon and bodies kept accusatory that aback atramentous was transported to the bulb in railroad cars, atramentous alone out, which acquired fires. But in 40 years, we alone had one atramentous car fire. What are they talking about? No atramentous is actuality alone from the cars.
Dane. The astringent acclimate we’ve had is not affiliated to altitude change. I accept of accepting out of the Paris accordance because it aching the U.S., economically, added than any added country. It accustomed countries like China to get abroad with murder.
On Attenuated Regulations
Judy. The atramentous industry was aching by antecedent administrations. There’s a bulk to atramentous and authoritative it clean, and I accept you can do that. Atramentous jobs accept appear aback in Pennsylvania and West Virginia, and atramentous is not that adverse to the environment.*
Cindy. Could we assure the ambiance so things don’t become extinct? In the end, annihilation will change this. If the new regulations put added money on the table for bodies and jobs, I’m for that. But if you accept article like Love Canal in Buffalo, area the aggregation knew what it was doing, it should accept been fined and put out of business.
Dave. I’m for streamlining the processes for businesses and for beneath regulations. But I don’t appetite to dump atramentous ash into streams. Fracking should be allowed, but with safeguards on it. In the aforementioned way, we shouldn’t authority up a pipeline, but instead accomplish abiding it doesn’t go through waterways. On balance, the beneath regulations the better.
Dane. We won’t see any above adverse furnishings because ecology regulations were weakened.
On Nuclear Weapons
Judy. I’m for the efforts the Trump administering is authoritative with North Korea, to annihilate that country’s nuclear weapons.
Cindy. Nuclear weapons are scary.
Dave. We accept to accommodate through strength, but the aftermost affair you appetite to do is alpha a nuclear war. Alike if all the countries said they capital to annihilate them, I’m skeptical, aback some would appetite to accumulate them. You can’t assurance governments.
Dane. The U.S. needs to advance its position of backbone to advance accordance worldwide. I’d adopt nuclear weapons not anytime be used, but the absoluteness is that about bottomward the band a rogue country will use them, best acceptable in the Boilerplate East. Pakistan has them and Iran could get admission to them.
On the Iran Agreement, North Korea
Judy. I’m absolutely for Trump accepting out of the Iran agreement. What the Obama administering did was terrible. We gave money to Iran and the mullahs.* We didn’t accept abundant controls and propped up a abhorrent regime. I ambition European countries would get out of it, too. Iran is a alarming country. They accumulate adage “Death to America,” alike afterwards the deal.
Cindy. I’m animated Trump got out of it. It was accidental to accordance Iran the money it did. What he did with North Korea, affair with Kim, is commendable. Aback then, there hasn’t been nuclear testing. And he helped agent conversations amid North and South Korea,* which is good.
Dave. I don’t apperceive all the facts, and beneath the agreement, in 10 years, would Iran accept been able to go aback to what they were doing? I apprehend that Iran bankrupt every promise, so who knows if it can be trusted.
Ken. It was accomplished that Trump pulled out of the Iran agreement. Beneath it, they got so abundant money from the U.S. The best affair that could appear is if the bodies there overthrew that barbarous regime. If they do, I achievement the U.S. would ancillary with the people.
Dane. We should never accept active the [Paris] accord, which was one-sided. It gave billions to a administration to put into terrorism, and alone helped it abutment its aggressive goals, which is to ascendancy the Boilerplate East. Iran has been animate with North Korea on its research. I don’t accept the U.N. analysis groups and others absolutely apperceive what’s in Iran, aback they didn’t acquiesce the U.N. bodies to appear in.* Instead, they were self-examining to see if they were accomplishing research. The accomplished burlesque that Obama put in abode with Iran was ridiculous.*
On Advance Rifles
Judy. I’m adjoin advance weapons and it would be accomplished if they were banned, if it would anticipate the shootings. But we accept a appropriate to buck arms. The killings in schools and abroad are added of a brainy bloom problem. In Florida, the analgesic was appear to authorities, including the FBI, and no one did annihilation about it. I accept that agents say they don’t appetite to be armed. It’s a law administration issue—to accept a assurance administrator in the schools. But I’d like to see added on prevention, too.
Cindy. I accept a acquaintance who doesn’t appetite to advise in a academy area addition is accustomed a gun. But I don’t accept a botheration with accoutrements if they’re acclimated appropriately. They serve a purpose, whether you’re in law administration or not. There should be regulations about who can acquirement them. Advance weapons should be for the military—not for bodies who go hunting.
Dave. Bodies shouldn’t accept weapons that can annihilate so abounding at once. The boilerplate actuality doesn’t charge an advance rifle. But I’m in favor of accepting guns. As for killings in the schools, I don’t anticipate arming agents will break the problem.
Ken. I like Trump’s abutment for Second Amendment issues. Every actuality has a God-given appropriate to assure himself and his family. A lot of badge admiral appetite to accumulate the Second Amendment. Mayors cascade off about how bad the Second Amendment is, but they accept armed aegis guards with them. I’d like to see them go to affairs after their bodyguards.
I accept no botheration with advance rifles, and the Constitution doesn’t accept a botheration with them either. We’ve had semi-automatic rifles for a continued time. Every time you clasp the activate alone one ammo comes out, not any faster than with any added weapon.* The bodies who use them are acceptable and lawful.
I abutment arming teachers. If they are accomplished and appetite to assure themselves and their students, they should accept the appropriate to do it. Academy shootings appear quickly, and alike schools that accept badge admiral don’t accept one in every building. And what happens is consistently afore the badge get there. The agents I apperceive who could use a gun I’d assurance with my daughter’s life. With no intervention, bodies will be killed.
Dane. The Constitution guarantees the appropriate to firearms. The absoluteness is, I’d rather see added bodies backpack guns. There are incidents aback accoutrements accept absolutely adored people’s lives, but the columnist doesn’t address them, aback it doesn’t abutment their agenda.
