TRUMP WAS RIGHT!

Remember when he said in his inimitable style:

"My people are so smart. And you know what else they say about my people, the polls? They say I have the most loyal people. Did you ever see that? Where I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose any voters, OK? It's like incredible."


Now there's a poll to check if he was right. Turns out, he was (for once):

Public Policy Polling put that claim to the test, and it mostly held up. Forty-five percent of Trump voters said they would approve of the president shooting someone on Fifth Avenue, while just 29 percent disapproved. Twenty-six percent, somehow, were unsure about their thoughts about whether it would be OK for Trump to shoot a random person on the street.
via Newsweek


Let that sink in. 45% of Trump voters said it was okay for a president* of the United States to murder someone in cold blood, as long as it was Donald Trump. And 26% just didn't know, couldn't decide, if that would be right or wrong.

These are the people whom we are told we must "reach out" to.

1. I think his base WANTS him to shoot people on 5th Avenue and many other places.

His base wants him to destroy, physically, about half of the country.

13. I think you are right...

And if he doesn't, I would not be surprised if they do.

2. Trying to reason with a Trump supporter is akin to pushing a cooked noodle through a cement block.

Nothing penetrates.

3. Its this kind of dipshit nihilism that put that king asshole in the White House.

Letís see how that poll stands up when the question replaces NYC with some backwater hamlet in Dumbfuckistan.

Full frontal fascism is here.

5. I say abandon them.

They're truly a minority anyway. Focus on undecideds. At least we can get through to them.

9. I misread that at first.

I thought you said they "have the IQ of a Trump"

Well, it IS fitting!

8. Trump was right about another thing . . .

Trump told me, if I voted for Hillary, there'd be a criminal in the White House, the FBI would be arresting White House aides, and before long the President would be arrested.

I voted for Hillary and guess what . . .

10. Eh ... Kind of Looks Like Newsweek Was Trolling, and Got Trolled

Just because Trump's attacking the media... even a broken clock is right twice a day.

I put it more like 20%

14. Asking Me For Evidence In This Thread

Is kind of silly, considering the hypothetical nature of the OP.

12. Something terrible has happened in this country.

It reminds me of...a cult. There are some people who can be brainwashed enough to follow a cult leader, let him (and it's always a "him" punish their children, cut them off from family, take their money, and sometimes even murder for him. They continue to follow the cult leader.

That's what this seems like to me.

It's just possible it's a similar thing. Democrats may not be as prone to becoming cult followers. I know that I am not. Maybe liberals are more independent thinkers? More prone to be suspicious of authoritarian so-called leaders?

If this is what's going on, that's very difficult to fix, since many, I've read, require extreme deprogramming. This is scary that there are SO MANY in our country who are like this.
