HE WAS THE pROGRESSIVE CANDIDATE:

Pssst...Trump: You Won By Running to Clinton's Left (Jud Lounsbury, 12/16/16, The Progressive)

This year, however, the Democrats put forth a candidate who looked a lot like Republican candidates of the past. On trade, Trump was successfully able to paint "the Clintons" as the authors of bad trade deals that many of these voters have seen ravish their communities. And even though Trump is a billionaire CEO who is horrible to his workers, the lasting impression of Clinton was of someone hopelessly beholden to Wall Street, big banks and anyone else who wrote six-figure checks to her, her campaign, or the Clinton Foundation.

Clearly, on the tipping points of these tipping point states, Trump appealed to voters by running to Hillary's left on key economic issues.
