UPDATE: Trump's base has now been solidified: the latest endorsement is from ...
The National Enquirer.
"I understand and respect the people who did vote for him. I know many of them. They are not racists or crazies or stupid. While many people call The Donald a fraud or a con-man, there are a lot of voters out there who think they have been conned election after election." - Carly Fiorina, CPAC - Mar.4)
Ahem, tell that to the rest of the country, Carly. Part of
the country that voted George W. Bush into office TWICE, is now making the rest
of America dumbfounded with its support of Trump. Trump has now become an
obnoxious golden calf: some people's desperate attempt to create a new
authority, a new idol because they can't understand America itself and stand
stewing in their isolation and (frankly) their stupidity.
It's Follow THE MOUTH, not Follow the Leader.
Max Ehrenfreund of the Washington Post ...
"... spoke to a number of psychologists and came up with three key sources of Mr Trump's appeal. "We like people who talk big," he writes. "We like people who tell us that our problems are simple and easy to solve, even when they aren't. And we don't like people who don't look like us."
In other words, they'll take loudmouthed white con man "telling it like it is," but don't particularly know (or care) what "it" is.
