How can 44% support Trump?

Yes, Biden is leading in a recent poll 49-44, but still..

And yes, the support for Trump is outside the Metro. Men, seniors, high earners, no college educations.

Not much enthusiasm, though, around the mid 50 except for Rs. of course - 95. Have to work on Independents 41 Biden, 42 Trump.

1. Same demographic as before, everywhere.

Low-information old white guys. Same people who won't wear face masks and think covid-19 is a hoax.

10. Believe it. This does not help

Omar says she believes Tara Reade's sex assault claims against Biden

https://www.startribune.com/ilhan-omar-says-she-believes-woman-s-sex-assault-claims-against-joe-biden/570748902/

Under fire, first-term congresswoman says she will still vote for the Democratic presidential nominee.

The "under fire" is from earlier story that she said she would not support Biden.

3. Ethnic hatred, mostly

You see this is many countries with eroding white majorities: a flight to the most loudmouthed, unabashed racists that right-wing white voters can find.

With Big Business bankrolling the whole thing all the way.

5. It is a question I ask

EVERY TIME I drive past a house now showing a "TRUMP" sign. What IS IT that has earned their support?

Infidelity?
Illegal use of campaign funds (help pay for infidelity)?
How can ANY Father of a young girl vote for this guy?
Destroying American relationships with allies?
Failure of leadership with the COVID-19 pandemic?
Record indictments of government officials in one administration?
Being impeached?

I just don't understand it...............

7. Sadly, hate for the "government" until they need it, of course

Or welcoming their disability checks but not for the - gasp - minorities.

And, sadly, in these days, his pugnaciousness, his going after anyone who even hints that, say, he needs a haircut.. (or whatever it is above his eyes).

12. The flags....

I have driven past several places that have trump flags flying on their flagpoles. I have never seen another President who had flags the way trump does.

Yes. What is it with these people?

13. Outstate Minnesota: unimpressed

I used to think all for one and one for all. I used to think the 6th was an anomaly. It’s not. There is the Cities and there is outstate. Outstate blames liberals for the loss of jobs, services and industry. They’ve given in to hate and mistrust but always cash their government aid checks/crumbs. But too bad for them, if the metro votes Democrats win.
