Who Are These People?

Donald Trump is catching some flack for failing correct one of his vocal supporters who stated the country “has a Muslim problem”, “Obama is a Muslim”, and “not even an American”. Of course, none of this is surprising. What else would we expect from a man who sees himself as the unofficial president of the “birther” movement? Trump’s entire campaign is based on xenophobia, Islamophobia and intolerance and if he disagreed publicly with bigots he would risk alienating more than half of his most ardent supporters. But who are the people that are attracted to a candidate because he appeals to their base nature?

1. Update:

Maybe the Donald's is starting to wear on more reasonable people. After the CNN debate he has fallen to 24% in the most recent CNN poll. However, the Battle Ax who is also obviously trying to appeal to the the Republican far right base has soared into second place.
