Donald Trump’s list of Supreme Court picks are all (except one or two) from (midwest) swing states! In the past, these states have voted Democratic. He is attempting to energize and unify the radical and conservative base in these states with a preemptive signal as well as reassure big donors he is on board with conservative policy on wealth and power. His list is also populist pandering to moderates (who like government) and radicals (who oppose it), reinforced by being all white.
