“Why do rural poor Americans vote against their economic interest?”

Reading Time: 3 minutes

A series of tweet I had come across a while ago, which I thought I had saved a link to, because I wanted to reproduce it since they were excellent… But then discovered I hadn’t, tried to locate them but failed and ended up kicking myself.

And then, I came across it today on Facebook and here it is…the reproduction!

Enjoy! I did!
