Interesting that the counties that tipped for Trump changing their historical pattern were those areas targeted by social media disinformation programs either operated by or imitating the Russian based services. The size of this program with personalized information packets proved very effective at influencing these people. Is this a product of their “nation’s” characteristics or simply a quirk of targeted propaganda? The general assumption is that less educated and/or more authoritarian oriented groups were easier to influence.
