The clueless ones who supported Trump were bad enough, but those who wasted their vote on guaranteed losers were the worst. That’s where the Russians were really effective, convincing folks that they were too good to vote for the second worst candidate in order to save the country from the absolute worst outcome. It’s what creeps like Trump pray for folks to do if one isn’t going to vote for them — producing a Naderized outcome.
