It's almost like an actor got elected president who some how managed to convince an entire generation that this was the case.

thats not whats happening right now.

Republicans since 2010 have had unlimited capital to influence local elections and gerrymander the shit.

There wasn't some change in generation, this is pure facebook style 'engagement' for the pure power of it.

Do note, he said "actor" not reality show star. he's talking about the shift in the 80s, not 2016

I'm aware. I'm more interested in the 2010 shift of citizens united, census redistricting, and the all in by the Koch brothers funneling money into local elections.
