Honest question about Trump supporters....

If Trump and members of his administration are convicted and sentenced to prison, do you guys think the majority of his supporters would still deny any wrong doing by Trump?

I’m talking anchors on Fox News, republican politicians and republican constituents. If this happens, it will confirm that we have a serious issue with political tribalism in this country.

It’ll last about a week; then they’ll be right back rootin’ for the team...

4. I think it will be a lot like how Nixon was regarded after he resigned.

The pundit class and the politicians wanted nothing to do with him - but he still had about 25% support among rank and file voters. The MAGA hat wearers who went to Trump's rallies and yelled "Lock her up!" will go to their graves believing Trump was the Messiah, and it will be an equivalent 25% or so, for whom no facts will make a difference.

7. Of course, they will deny it, until their last breath.

A lot of his followers still think David Koresh was a saint, along with Hitler, Manson and a host of other riffraff.

13. Currently traitors?

 

I would argue they are not "traitors," because they firmly believe (at least the one's I've argued with) that there's zero evidence Trump colluded with Russia and that the entire investigation was created out of thin air by the "left wing" media and some sort of Clinton cabal, that they think includes not only Hillary Clinton but Robert Mueller and many mainstream republicans. So I think they are deluded, but that the term "traitor" doesn't apply.

20. How is that so?

 

They voted for Trump, and don't believe the Russia stories. That makes them patsies, not "Russian assets." Facts are our friends.

21. They bought the Russian propaganda hook, line and sinker.

How are they different than Donnie Jr and Kushner.
Same dynamic.

Edited to add:

As American citizens we have a responsibility to not sell out to hostile foreign powers.

do for him but Comey's 2nd coming screwed the narrative that time.

17. They never forgave us for Nixon's resignation. Bill Clinton was revenge for that.

They never forgave us for Vietnam War protests. They still insist those protests made us lose the war. They never forgive, they never forget, and they never admit they are wrong.

22. Many of them are still denying any wrongdoing by Jefferson Davis ...

so I think it's pretty safe to say that - yes - they will continue to stand by their man (comrade).

25. We'll need a different angle to sway many of them: maybe something along the lines of

"Trump is a mole planted in the White House by left-wingers hoping to destroy the conservative brand"

26. When Nixon was close to being impeached, 27 percent still believed he was innocent .

I looked it up..about 1 in 4 in spite of the condemning evidence, (and there was/and still is a whole lot) thought he was innocent. And it is going to be the same.......somewhere around that 27 percent will believe in Trump no matter what. or 25 percent..Doesn't matter, cause there will be a sizeable minority that believes he/Trump was railroaded by false evidence. Now..that was 43 years ago. It wasn't tribalism, it was a belief in the president and issues with the media lying about Nixon. No matter what the "truth" is, there are some that believe that the "media" lies all the time, and is out to get their hero...in this Trump...43 years ago...Nixon.

29. "They were out to get him right from the start"

"It was a frame up."
"The charges were phony and the evidence was fake news."
"It's an anti-conservative conspiracy."
etc, etc, ad nauseum.
