But worse, and not unrelated, it continues a moral narrative, common among many Clinton Democrats, that implicitly and often very explicitly values people with bachelor’s degrees over those without.

Only “often?”
Hop on any political comment board, and you get droves of left-leaning, assumedly educated and professional posters laughing at the “stupid” Trump voters, because they got ahold of some article showing how the non college degreed leaned Trump in 2016.

The scorn from the left for the unlettered is palpable.

Only 30% of the country has a Bachelors degree, and adding in those with some college or associates degrees does not get the number up to 40%. So, any political party that wants to create a lasting coalition better pay attention to workers.
