This is a brilliant article in Rolling Stone magazine about the anger of the Republican party’s base at the realisation that their leaders have essentially sold them down the river through the decades. It’s also a great reminder of how populations react to the obnoxious and snobbish behaviour of elites, and how they respond – with Trump. 
In a very different sense, the snobbish behaviour of the UPA, and the perception of their nepotism laid the groundwork for the Modi wave, and the consequent emergence of illiberalism as a legitimate thread of democratic discourse.
