Mired in the swamp

Re “Anal­y­sis: To these vot­ers, Trump fit­ting in with ‘the swamp,’ ” Aug. 5

Los Angeles Times - - OPINION -

I am tired of peo­ple say­ing the po­lit­i­cal par­ties have aban­doned them, es­pe­cially those who voted for can­di­dates who made no se­cret that their first loy­alty was to the party, not the vot­ers.

In the last cam­paign, vot­ers could choose a party that wanted to im­prove af­ford­able ac­cess to health­care; main­tain the progress to­ward cleaner air, wa­ter and soil; find so­lu­tions to global cli­mate change; ad­vance tech­nolo­gies that im­proved daily life; and po­lice banks, credit card is­suers, fi­nan­cial firms and even ed­u­ca­tional busi­nesses that vic­tim­ize con­sumers.

In­stead they voted for the other guy, and now they’re sur­prised he won’t de­liver?

Give me a break. David Mid­dle­ton Ran­cho Mi­rage

DON­ALD TRUMP cam­paigned as a po­lit­i­cal out­sider, but some vot­ers see a lack of fol­low-through.
