Why do so many people forgive Trump?
01 Nov 2016 17:03 | By: Matt @ Outside In
It's been a couple of weeks since Trump got thoroughly beaten by Clinton in the debates and yet the polls have rebounded for him again. The reopening of the FBI investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server whilst Secretary of State probably helped, but his numbers were improving anyway. What gives??
One explanation is that - despite his at times startling political incorrectness - Trump still paints a very coherent vision for America; a nostalgic vision of dignified jobs for the working class and very little of the flux that has become synonymous with life in the digital age. Perhaps some voters are more willing to foregive Trump because their main alternative is Clinton, whose close relationship to Obama suggest 'more of the same' to them.

Controversy on the campaign trail this week as FBI Director James Comey announced to Congress that they were reopening their investigation about Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server because of new evidence. This despite Comey - a Republican appointee - admitting they didn't actually know if Clinton was implicated in the new evidence at all.
