Trump voters say they’re doing fine but government is lying about economy’s health

There’s a disconnect between economic data suggesting a good and growing economy, and a groundswell of voters who think those numbers are rigged. Interviews with several dozen voters in Western Pennsylvania who support Republican Donald Trump reveal a deeply held distrust of government statistics and programs, a fear that their own relative prosperity is threatened and the strong sense that change is critical in the White House.
