Self-help author Marianna Williamson has ended her US presidential campaign. If you're surprised the new-age guru got this far, don't be. She is very representative of modern America, writes Emily Olson.

Amazing:

[Marianne Williamson] wasn't registering a single per cent in the polls and hadn't qualified for a debate since July. She laid off her entire campaign staff earlier this month, citing a lack of funds in a desperate signal to donors.

But at the same time, it wasn't like her campaign was a complete failure.

She qualified for two debates by raising more than $US6 million ($8.6 million) from over 65,000 Americans — something traditional politicians had failed to do — and outlasted democratic darlings like Kamala Harris, Beto O'Rourke and Bill DeBlasio.

If it sounds surprising, remember that the self-care industry is a $10 billion entity in the US.

Horoscope apps are wildly popular, suddenly on-level with vitamins and yoga and face masks.

More than three quarters of Americans say they're "spiritual".

Bernie Sanders is Elizabeth Warren's biggest obstacle to the nomination. And he's surging ahead.

I'm prejudiced against socialists. But Bernie Sanders might favour stopping the madness.

If he can get in, which I'd have thought was doubtful.

Hillary Clinton says she is standing by her comments on Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders.

Stuff like this is what's just badly damaged the Labour Party - and enabled Boris Johnson to act like a loose cannon with a huge Parliamentary majority.

Hillary is so toxic, it may well boost his ratings.

That's not the response of an honest person.

Let alone that of a open-hearted custodian of a small part of cyber-space.
