Populism

Trump supporters: Contempt for elites; Contempt for politicians who seem to disregard their concerns; Contempt for politics and the status quo; The wish to be the winner in an adverse world; Xenophobia mixed with unsettling world news; Support of any change at all.

This is what we see in Europe as well.
