Stephen Harper (Canadian PM for 9 years) takes a somewhat different tact to explain how Trump won. His spin pits the "anywheres" vs. the "somewheres".

Interestingly, he defines conservatism as "seeing the world as it is". That is my preferred definition for wisdom (put another way, "knowing truth"). FWIW I think of conservatism as "recognizing and holding to what has worked -- while resisting ideological based changes."
