So trump says he could go into the street and potentially murder someone and his followers will still vote for him.
Says a lot about his supporters.
Most People Who Are Planning To Vote For Trump Would Never Admit It In A Poll
And you know who you are. Its an odd sort of "contrariness" that has overtaken the nation.
His supporters mischeivious determination is infectious with a slightly naughty feel. I get it.

So if Trump doesn't get elected, can we finally put the "silent majority" myth to rest? Or it will be dragged out and put on display every time the Republicans feel like they are underdogs in a Presidential race?
Edit: I was saying "nope" to the first question, on whether it will be put to rest.
Anti-Semitism fueled by the Depression and by demagogues like the radio priest Charles Coughlin influenced immigration policy. In 1939 pollsters found that 53 percent of those interviewed agreed with the statement "Jews are different and should be restricted." Between 1933 and 1945 the United States took in only 132,000 Jewish refugees, only ten percent of the quota allowed by law.
Reflecting a nasty strain of anti-Semitism, Congress in 1939 refused to raise immigration quotas to admit 20,000 Jewish children fleeing Nazi oppression. As the wife of the U.S. Commissioner of Immigration remarked at a cocktail party, "20,000 children would all too soon grow up to be 20,000 ugly adults." Instead of relaxing immigration quotas, American officials worked in vain to persuade Latin American countries and Great Britain to admit Jewish refugees. In January 1944, Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau, as the only Jew in the Cabinet, presented the President with a "Report to the Secretary on the Acquiescence of this Government in the Murder of the Jews." Shamed into action, Roosevelt created the War Refugee Board, which, in turn, set up refugee camps in Italy, North Africa, and the United States.
I learned it from the same place that I learned that 99 percent of statistics are completely made up on the spot. Or are they?

How can you possibly know or support that statement? Most people wont admit it, yet somehow you know this to be true...?!
Clairvoyant? Psychic? OR Just a wild guess based on your own opinion?
Somehow the racist "Dixiecrats" alive until the 70's have been transformed into LGBT and minority loving folks.
1964 Presidential candidate Barry Goldwater won his home state of Arizona and five states in the Deep South, depicted in red. The Southern states, traditionally Democratic up to that time, voted Republican primarily as a statement of opposition to the Civil Rights Act, which had been passed in Congress earlier that year. Capturing 61.1% of the popular vote and 486 electors, Johnson won in a landslide. Note that Texas went to Johnson as he was its favorite son.
