Politics is local.

The title above is a line from the great American Speaker of the House, Tip O’Neill.

It is also a fresh take on the Clinton v Trump contest I think.

Clinton ran on national issues like gay rights, women’s, rights, climate, universal college.

Trump ran on “re-open this factory/mine”, “deport that migrant”, and “get your kind of people back in power”. Locally observable but not factually/statistically material self-interest matters.
