Carlson: Pundits Didn't Foresee Trump Win Because of 'Snobbery & Stupidity'
Fox News Channel's newest primetime show - Tucker Carlson Tonight - debuts on Monday, November 14th at 7 p.m. ET.
Tucker Carlson believes that Donald Trump's victory was similar to the U.K.'s Brexit vote, in that it was a massive, nationwide movement against the people running the country.
On "Fox & Friends" this morning, Carlson said that most pollsters and pundits didn't pick up on that because they had their own preconceived notions about the 2016 race.
"The contempt that the people analyzing this election had for anybody with an alternative point of view, I mean, it was like you were denying evolution," Carlson said. "Their preconceptions were so strong, they couldn't break out of them."
He said that "snobbery" and "stupidity" among political analysts prevented them from seeing that millions of Americans were truly furious with the political establishment and the status quo.
"If you're not in the elite media, if you're not on Wall Street, if you're not in the political class, look at the people who run the country. They sneer at you. They have contempt for you," Carlson said. "And you resent that after a while."
