From a sociological standpoint, it really is pretty interesting how little many Americans know about other parts of the world. People like Trump are fed jingoistic propaganda about America all their lives and never realize, understand, or want to understand how some things might be better in other countries. It's just a blanket America is the best country in the world without examining what they mean by that.
I would bet every single penny I have that Tump doesn't know there is no college tuition in Norway. I'd bet he has no idea that every single person's taxes are public in Norway. I think he might know about universal healthcare, but I wouldn't be on it. I'd also bet he has no idea that people in Norway, on average, live longer than Americans.
This goes true for a randomly selected middle-class Trump voter, college educated or not.
