1. Trump appeals to those GOP voters

who have in common a few identifiable features.

One is they believe Obama is a Muslim, likely born in Kenya, not that they could find Kenya on a map. Not that they could find the left side of their own asses with a 3-panel mirror.

Two is that Murka was ruined by hippies, liberals, academics, and scientists, not least because some or all of those groups keep using fact-based arguments when discussing policy. The Trump demographic is anti-all those groups generally and anti-fact particularly.

A third feature is tax cuts. The rule here is, the richer you are the greater your need to enjoy generous tax cuts. Taxes on the wealthy should be cut even as social services for the poor should be reduced or eliminated.

A fourth is that President Obama and his administration are clueless. They are incompetent and are trying to establish Sharia law in Murka. Not all Republicans believe this by the same intensity but many do.

There are other features. But that's a handful to start with in trying to understand why Trump continues to lead national GOP primary polling.
