Do you think Trump's wall policy secured the victory?
Well, as the old saw has it, victory has a thousand fathers whereas defeat is an orphan.There were a multiplicity of factors, the most important of which was the shift of the economy from a manufacturing/extractions base to a service/tech base. This has put enormous pressure on the lower middle class/blue collar voters and the Democratic party failed to take this into account. Indeed, as it has pursued the youth vote and the "Silicon Valley" vote, it has showed some contempt for the lower middle class. (See also, the "deplorables." See also "clinging to guns and religion.") Thus it was driven into the waiting arms of Mr. Trump in key states.However, the illegal immigration issue captured this in its essence and was galvanizing. It was drew attention to Mr. Trump and made him a viable contender for that demographic. In that sense, it was the issue that secured the victory.
