On today’s show, we’re reading the exit poll tea leaves to see how different groups voted. Plus, President-Elect Donald Trump turns to filling out his cabinet. Traditionally, a Republican administration brings in Washington insiders and members of conservative think tanks, but Trump is far from a traditional Republican. Here’s Marketplace DC Bereau Chief Andrea Seabrook:
There’s a really big difference between, conceptually, rhetorically, between slowly molding the economy that should be, which is what Hillary Clinton did, and saying, “the economy that is sucks for you [and] for us,” which is what Trump said. I think that the people that have already lost that insiders-outsiders battle, who already don’t have access, they’re the ones who voted for Trump by and large.
