the popularity of 3rd grade rhetoric in politics

On the grade levels of the speech patterns from the major party's leading candidates...

a.) Identity is more important than policy stances in this cycle. 
b.) Well-deserved cynicism toward politicians is pounding "the establishment" candidates and establishment approaches-- even as it reaches for candidates who will also disappoint.
c.) The government's education and welfare policies work feverishly to encourage the popularity of 3rd-grade rhetoric.
d.) To the extent that the political game is entertainment, people like "action movies" with bombast and simple plots.
