Zi, He is a good and decent man and I couldn't see myself working against them. So that was interesting. We didn't pull one day and police I went 79 and it was almost all Bernie or more and not one person voted for by scientific, By the way. And to be clear, I think a lot of by the support. I mean, I mean, you're right. I think that there definitely was enormous and we solve the exit polls. There's obviously a huge, huge not gender gap, age gap between younger people who were very much into bernie and Warren and I'm not surprised. I mean, you look, he is of another era. He's the guy who's talking about record players for kids, write monographs, phonographs exactly. And, and you know, I mean, you know, the greatest generation World War two. So I could totally see how we seem old and out of touch to do a lot of younger folks. So I'm not at all surprised by that. Ok, Aaron asks, In hindsight, did Trump really hijack the Republican Party in 2016? Or did he reveals, speak to what the GOP really wanted, driven primarily by racial cultural analysts and not adherents to conservatism. Wow, that's all the questions. They're really good. In a way. I'm site really good questions. Yeah. I think, you know, I think there's a little bit of both to thatend. I mean, this, there's no question that Donald Trump appeal to a certain strain of nationalism, of backlash, racial backlash, if you will, within the Republican Party. I think he did bring in a lot of people who were maybe not Republicans or didn't vote for Republicans, who voted for Trump. I think you can't separate out the mechanics of how Donald Trump won that election. So if a cancer has set aside, yes, there is. He did appeal to a certain, again nationalistic strain, white backlash strain. But if you go back and you look at that campaign, it was a very interesting phenomena. What happened? You know, it's your classic tragedy of the commons, which, which for those who may not, may not lead to top of mind is this idea that maybe collectively would be for the good of the party to not nominee Donald Trump, right? That was the perception at the time. But no individual candidate was incentivized to be the one to take him up. Right. So everyone thought, You know what? It would be bad. I mean, you hadn't said the lindsey Graham's of the world. You know, the, the, the, the, the Ted Cruz is the world. All of them talk about how horrible and howterrible Donald Trump was and what a debacle would be of the party nominated them. But but but that came very late August when it was too late. No one wantedto be the one to take on Donald Trump. No one took him seriously, but no one wanted to alienate his supporters. So you had this phenomenon, the 2016 campaignwhere Donald Trump skated for a very, very long time to that primary because no one wanted to take them on because they all figured, like this guy's not serious. So when he falls away, I want to be the one to scoop some supporters.
