I hate to say this, but I'm.......

embarrassed with one of my sisters. She said she was only voting for Trump for one reason! He will make the right choices for the Supreme Court. Now, I respect her her vote, but is that only reason? She is against abortion & feels that it is illegal, this from someone who has tried to take her life 3 times in past 10 years. Thanks for letting me vent! We haven't talked ever since her last attemp of suicide. It is hard to understand those unreasonable people.

6. This is obviously massively limited and anecdotal, but all Trump voters I spoke to

Gave reasons that involve stopping other people doing something. In the vast majority of cases that "something" doesn't even directly impinge upon the Trump voter.

Stopping swarthier people becoming Americans
Stopping women being able to make reproductive choices
Stopping poor people getting welfare

7. My cousin and his wife

Evangelical Christians, who are so offended by abortion that they will vote for Trump. This is the big issue for them.
As far as they're concerned that is the end of the discussion.

8. Single issue voters are a bane on our existance...

Generally, people worrying about the USSC only care about one or both of two things: abortion and 2d Amendment.
