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

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