I was talking to a woman who is around my age (old enough to remember when Regan was President) and she said to me, "I don't like what Trump is doing with all this Russia stuff.". She was vague and biased. I went on a five minute rant about how my entire life the West has been paranoid about a possible Nuclear exchange with Russia and now we have a President that wants a peaceful relationship and the left are out of their minds about how this is a bad thing!
I distinctly remember the Cold War.
I also remember the Yeltsin the Drunk era, just passed.
Russian voters remember all of this, and while they might not all be Putin fans they vote for keeping the ATM working. Don't know how many people remember Russia collapses to the point the cash point ATM all stopped working.
