On making American great again 

This quote from Ron Brownstein (in a podcast via a Leonhardt post) nails it:

“Republicans have to find a way to talk to a changing America,” says Brownstein, who was a data-friendly political journalist before it was cool. “The key word in the Trump lexicon is ‘again.’ If you’re a 32-year-old Hispanic lawyer or a 27-year-old African-American architect or a 40-year-old white professional woman or a gay couple in Charlotte, North Carolina, you may not think things are perfect now, but there is no mythical ‘again’ you are trying to get back to.”
