According to Ukrainian TV, mainly uneducated farmers voted for Donald Trump during the US presidential election.
People from the village community, who do not have higher education, voted for the leader of the US presidential election, Donald Trump, head of the Ukrainian edition of Voice of America, Myroslava Gongadze announced, speaking on the 112 TV-channel.
“Half of the US population has always supported him. He had 43% of votes at certain time, now he has more. This is especially true for not urban, rural states or sparsely populated territories of the US… Generally, the voters’ turnout was high, the highest [voters’ turnout] was among white men without higher education. These people became extremely active. They was not active for very long time, but Trump managed to do this [to activate these people],” Gongadze said.
Several months ago, propagandist Savik Shuster explained success of the Brexit referendum in a similar way on Ukrainian TV. He insisted that educated social groups of the UK supported preservation of the EU membership.
According to Shuster, only proletarian provinces and pensioners, charmed by populists, voted for the UK exit from the EU, while industrial and scientific centers of the country supported preservation of the EU membership.
“London’s elite voted in this way, educated people, all educated people, voted in favor of the EU, young people voted in favor of the EU. This means that old men and old women decided that their grandchildren should live outside the EU,” Shuster said.
