What did manliness have to do with Trump’s election?

Harvey Mansfield, professor of government at Harvard University and author of “Manliness,” a put-down of western feminists, as quoted by The Wall Street Journal:

“Laughing lightly, Mr. Mansfield recalls Mr. Trump’s masculine belittling of ‘Little Marco,’ ‘Low Energy Jeb’ and ‘Lyin’ Ted.’  ‘That was very effective with a lot of voters,’ he says, ‘particularly the less educated. You could look at 2016 as a revolt of the lower-IQ half of America against the upper half, which is dominated by the universities.’ Now in Washington there has been ‘a replacement of the people who reflect the values of American universities, where manliness is taboo.’ “
