2. That high percentage are those that I view as programmed cult members of RW media.

They have been saturated for decades with RW propaganda. A good example would be Obama’s 8 years which we saw consistent growth coming out of the Bush crash and steady competence. During those years you would be hard pressed to find anything positive about Obama in the RW media. It was all negative so that their viewers/listeners believed Obama was destroying the country. They were made to be angry and afraid 24/7/365. They do not listen to facts that do not fit their views. The word on that now is “fake news.”

Until we make changes and require truth in news we are screwed. Fox won an appeal on a judgement against them in Florida with the court of appeals saying it was ok for Fox to lie because they were not news, they were entertainment. This is a root cause of many of our problems and allow Republicans to hold on to their offices when they are becoming a minority in this country.
