Today on "AM Joy," her MSNBC TV show, Joy Reid asked documentary filmmaker and author Michael Moore the question that has perplexed me throughout this presidential campaign.

Why do many white, blue collar workers apparently support Republican Donald Trump for president?

The presidential election of 1800 ended up a tie between Thomas Jefferson and his running mate, Aaron Burr.

Yep, that’s right. Back then, the candidate who got the most electoral votes was president, and the second place finisher was vice president. Jefferson and Burr got 73 apiece.

Jefferson and Burr were Democratic Republicans. They beat President John Adams and his running mate C.C. Pinckney. They were Federalists.

EDITOR'S NOTE:  Here are a couple of relevant Donald Trump quotes:

We must have strong borders and not let illegal immigrants enter the United States. As has been stated continuously in the press, people are pouring across our borders unabated. Public reports routinely state great amounts of crime are being committed by illegal immigrants.

They have to go.

 For all sad words of tongue and pen,

The saddest are these, "It might have been."

A lot of people are familiar with that lament even if they don’t know its source.

It comes from an 1856 poem by John Greenleaf Whittier. The passage can apply to just about anything. But it’s particularly apt for Tuesday's state House races.

This is it!

The last weekend before Election Day. 

Time for GOTV… GOTV… GOTV. 

For months we have worked to identify union members and their families that will vote for the labor-endorsed candidates.  NOW is when we MAKE SURE that these voters go to the polls next Tuesday!
