17 Percent Of Trump Supporters Who May Break With The Donald…

Those of us who support impeachment don’t deny that there is a “Trump base” but insist that mountains of polling evidence show that it amounts to 25 to 30 percent of voters at most. The rest of the 46 percent who voted for Trump have real doubts about who he is, how he behaves and what he is doing to our country. Even those of us who disagree with them on a variety of issues see this substantial part of Trump’s constituency as made up of rational and engaged citizens open to persuasion.

In prior posts this site has readily stated that the Trump apologists/cultists are void of any ability to reason and use rational thought processes. The Trump apologist/cultist are, just like their cult leader, driven by raw emotionalism and blind faith. We continue to stand by our judgement.

The 25 to 30 percent of Trump supporters the author of the above excerpt refers to is the same percentage this site readily refers to as Trump apologists/cultists and irrational thinkers. Nothing will convince this group of anti American that their leader is both intellectually and emotionally unfit to hold the office of the president of the United States. They are completely immune to reason and rational thinking.

The 24 percent are the folks you see at the Trump rallies. Trump’s more tepid approvers (17 percent of registered voters in this survey) tend to stay home, take in the news and ask questions about what’s going on.

The big gap between strong approvers and strong disapprovers was very predictive of the 2018 election turnout that gave Democrats control of the House. Those elections showed that many who voted for Trump in 2016 were prepared to vote for Democrats two years later. This was a telling sign that a sizable share of Trump’s voters are not lockstep apologists.

It is likely that the 17 percent will ultimately choose to support the democratic candidate over Trump in the 2020 election cycle. Why? Because they are among the real Americans who know Trump has wrought grave damage to our republic with his divisiveness, his undermining of our institutions of government, and his damage to our credibility on the international stage. These are the folks who with democrats will turn Trump out in 2020. Assuming he is not impeached by the House and removed by the Senate first.

An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll conducted Sept. 13 to 16, before the White House readout of Trump’s Ukraine call was released, found a relatively high 45 percent saying they approved of Trump’s performance. But only 30 percent said they had “very positive” feelings toward him, and only 25 percent said they both liked Trump personally and approved of most of his policies.

Again, it is the 25 percent that this site refers to as Trump apologists/cultists. The folks who regardless of the facts and evidence of Trump’s disregard for the Constitution and his lawlessness will continue to support him. These are the folks Trump himself was referring to when he said he could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and get away with it.
