Product of a deliberately dumbed-down education system -- Texas' 2012 Republican platform opposed to "Knowledge-Based Education – We oppose the teaching of Higher Order Thinking Skills (values clarification), critical thinking skills and similar programs that are simply a relabeling of Outcome-Based Education (OBE) (mastery learning) which focus on behavior modification and have the purpose of challenging the student’s fixed beliefs and undermining parental authority."
Remember how before the election Trump and his minion talked about how it would be rigged, and Trump has been calling to abolish the electoral college since at least 2012? And they even threatened to overthrow the govt if he lost? But now they're all like "fair is fair, get over it now that it's working in our favor!" And now Trump likes the electoral college? I remember.
Roughly 10% less democrats voted in the 2016 election, over five million votes, then they did in the 2012 election and that is how Trump was elected. If you want to blame someone, blame those too lazy to find the time to vote.
