First thing that came up on Google. Bernie fans see socialism as a good thing, Tovarisch.

Trump has been winning close to half the votes in the political Caucuses.
A popular candidate appeals to all demographics obviously.
Sounds like your big kicker is "slavery".
I'm reading and posting in threads about the political voting process, but i'm also aware many of us are slaves to party politics and ideals.

Trump supporters are just too stupid to realize that if he does indeed get elected, he would swing so fast to the center their heads would spin :p


I know, it's a win-win for progressives either way!


With a Republican Congress?

Not likely.

In fact if he switches rhetoric after election the current GOP Congress will shaft him more than Obama.



Having said that he'll have plenty of time to play his beloved Golf.
Like Obama.



Ha. They're so alike I bet they're buddies behind the scenes.


I can hear Jack Nicholson saying "wait till they get a load of me".


Poor Trumpers.

All some of them want is to go back to the good old racist, internment days and have a country free of The Gay.

Can't they have that?

Besides folks Obama went to a racist church for years and it didn't bother his voters.

You want people to tolerate intolerance?

How does that logic work?

The responses to this very thread pretty much collaborate the polls findings.

I find the cult like adoration of Trump by his devotees very concerning.

The information gathered:


I'm confused as this seems to be the source?


33% want to ban gays from entering the country



Q21
Would you support or oppose banning
homosexuals from entering the United States?

20%
Support banning homosexuals from entering
the United States
............................................
63%
Oppose banning homosexuals from entering
the United States
............................................
17%
Not sure



Just noticed the discrepancy between the poll and the OP.

Not a Partisan or a Trump fan, it just bothered me.

No, by all means, be intolerant. Hate indiscriminently.

Trump supporters are racist bigots.
Bernie supporters are communists.
Hillary supporters are establishment loving elitists and liars.
All muslims are terrorists.
All Asians are lousy drivers.
All Hispanics are lazy. . . . .

Should I continue?

Be as intolerant as you want.

Hell, I'd encourage you to be as hateful as you could be. I would encourage everyone to spew as much bile and bilge as they can.

Really, it's fun to watch.

I get a kick out of people who claim to be tolerant and are really elitist snobs who hate with as much passion as an ISIS member with hemorrhoids.

Here's another from the New York Times article:


Nationally, the YouGov data show a similar trend: Nearly 20 percent of Mr. Trump’s voters disagreed with Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, which freed slaves in the Southern states during the Civil War. Only 5 percent of Mr. Rubio’s voters share this view.


But the YouGov data shows only this:


Do you disagree with the executive order which:

Freed all slaves in the states that were in rebellion against the federal government

Approve strongly......53%
Approve somewhat...17%
Disapprove somewhat....8%
Disapprove strongly... 5%
Not sure...17%


Strange.

I had a whole essay written out...

I won't bother...


I'll just say people won't shut up anymore and just tolerate bigotry in 2016.

Get over it.

Except many of us know he is a centrist like us, and that is what we want?

Didn't expect that did you?

By all means, speak out, but be sure to have a large canvas if you or others are going to use such a broad brush.

Or he is playing the role of badass to bring out the moderate voters in record numbers to vote against him. Politics is a game of perception, not reality.

I don't think you've read a single response of mine in this thread if that's all you've got.


Maybe you assumed because I don't usually agree with/think like you I must have broad brushed somewhere along the way and you'd get away with such an accusation...

Sadly for you, not, my friend.
Because I haven't.

Try again.

We have freedom of speech of here in Merika!

That is how.

Just because someone believes in somthing that you disagree with( all religions in my oppinion, this is where you are an idiot to me BTW ) doesn't make them an idiot or bad or wrong etc...

Folks are allowed to have freedom of thought and speech, it is what free folks do.

Those are the results of all respondents( Cruz, Rubio fans etc). Not just Trump supporters.The article goes further and combines 2 surveys+ exit poll data. From the surveys, they are able to ascertain whom each respondent is supporting ( i.e Q2 in the PPP)and therefore, can break it down smaller and calculate the percentages on how they answered the other questions. At least that is my understanding. That data should have been included in the PDF's.


Again....you are NOT looking at the results JUST for Trump supporters, but the entire body politic surveyed.

~ETA~ I just checked the PPP survey....it does break down response by candidate around the top page 10ish it starts. Read the whole surveys.
