1. Joe the republican party elected him

You need to admit that is to the place you and other republicans drove your party to. Look in that gigantic mirror to see who enabled him to be your candidate.

64. That's right. I'd like to see an hour-long program on WHY this is the state of the GOP base.

It needs to be examined in serious light.
Obviously racism is part of it, but there's more to it than that.
A breakdown of the top reasons, or a psychology a design survey, would be fascinating.
Here are a few categories I would consider:
- dog whistles
- xenophobia
- trust a rich "self funded" (sic) guy instead of establishment politician
- a pretend strong man
- simple language over nuanced language

The GOP establishment (and Fox News in particular) has been plowing the ground for decades to dumb down their base and their dialog.

35. There is a tremendous amount of status quo

in many people. I see that here in PA. It takes a major event to get
people to eject an incumbent. People are not politically aware, they
do not know and are not aware of the impact of politics and political
economy on their lives. They accept someone because they accept
a similar ethnic name, a person who looks good in TV ads, a person
who supports local jobs/police/firefighters/nursinghomes/vets and
shows it in video clips.

We're more aware now with the internet, the age of mass media
is waning, but voter education is needed. Most Trump supporters that
I've met are new to politics, little education, they go for the emotions
and sound bites.

All they really had to do was encourage him to run. They knew he would take care of the rest all by himself.
