Left-liberal “pro­gress­ives” did this to themselves. This is exactly what retreating into cultural (i.e., iden­tity) politics, while abandoning class as the basis for a socially transformative coalition, gets you. If you make no attempt to ap­peal to work­ers qua work­ers, the Right will in­ev­it­ably make in­roads with­in that group. As they in­deed have. So I don’t pity any­one who is seriously distraught by these res­ults. Blame for Trump can­not be laid solely at the doorstep of “crack­ers” and hicks; he did sig­ni­fic­antly bet­ter among blacks and Latinos than Romney, his Republican predecessor.
