Micah, fabulous article. Well-researched and brimming with relevant facts. You have found another example of how the media tends to fabricate narratives about our nation, culture and society. You have shown in your article the complexity and often contrary signals emitted by these primary results. Complexity and ambiguity are not attractive narrative avenues for the media. That doesn't get clicks, attract ears on podcasts or sell print articles. Thank you for imprinting context on facts. It's common for people to decry our new fact-free political environment, but it's just as dangerous to watch as a more accurate and nuanced interpretation of those facts are discarded and ignored in favor of simplistic and distorted conclusions.
