A couple of times a week I stop at a local watering hole. Bar on one side, restaurant on the other. I meet friends there. Quite often I stay to just listen to the conversations going on around me. My county voted 82 percent for Trump in 2016. The county has vote "Trump" ever since. Trump's approval rating remains very high.
Given all that has happened and is happening HOW does this continue?
EZ.....they want Trump to WIN! Because they believe, in spite of the facts, that if HE WINS then THEY WIN.
My neighbors include lots of farmers who are being shafted in trade as crops sit unsold. There are people whose jobs have been affected by the impact of tariffs on the factories where they work. My neighbors include people who have their healthcare because of Obamacare but won't admit it. I have neighbors who are on "food stamps" and other assistance which is not flowing now "because the democrats are playing politics.
It comes down to the power of three emotions: hate, anxiety, and anger. They are fuel that feeds the irrational furnace that heats their minds.
And the fevered brow eventually sickens the rest of the body.
Trump, the MOST SUCCESSFUL of WHITE MEN, shares in those emotions with them and provides justification for their thinking and their feeling. He says and does what they want said and done...
I do not know how they change as every challenge to Trump is seen as proof that he is being unfairly treated....just as they are.
