Low-Information Voters

Good to hear that Ken Burns and historians of the American presidency are teaming up to inform voters about who Donald Trump really is.

Historian David McCullough calls DT "a monstrous clown with a monstrous ego."

Thank you, Sharon, for letting me know about this article in the New York Times.

My friend Jan Leonard introduced me to the term "low-information voters..." a nice way of referring to people who vote as if the presidency were a high-school popularity contest.

Burns and McCullough are trying to give these people a little more information.
