Yes, the ideas of Trumpists are the result of low education but also of persistent brainwashing by right wing media which is available to them 24/7. It is why the battle lines are being drawn with increasing rancor towards an enemy they think cannot be negotiated with.

The Democratic party deserves a healthy share of the blame of course with people like Joe Manchin personifying the Neoliberal bought politician sticking up for corporate interests who have little interest in helping the disenfranchised.
