I enjoyed the NYT article. The only line I didn't like:

". . .it conceals well-informed, formally educated white
conservatives - from middle-class suburbia to the highest
ranks of influence - who voted for Donald Trump in legions."

As one of those, I have no desire to be "concealed" and I
most certainly also despise unfair power.
