As much as we like to come down on Trump voters, not all of them are pickup truck with a dog in the back, low intelligence people. Some are actually nice people and smart. I think those are the people who will not be ashamed to admit they made a mistake. But his core base, some of whom we see daily on here, will never back down, and if he loses, they will be the most vocal and conspiracy believing people on the planet.
I'm one of those who are educated, nice, smart and don't own a pick up truck - but I am a Democrat who voted for him and will do so again! Gladly!

I my case, definitely, ""Donald Trump is not what I thought I was voting for".

It was also the case for several of my friends. We voted for Donald Trump exactly because we thought he would be totally incompetent. It was a clear message to the Elites in this country, that we had enough.



Quite frankly, I had enough of watching this country going slowly down the toilet under Bush 1, Clinton, Bush 2, and finally Obama.



We voted for Trump to ACCELERATE the process. I thought that might FINALLY get the attention of the Elites in this country to address the needs of the American people instead of the power structure.


So I voted for Trump. Hoping the Elites would finally notice that the country was in trouble. Yeah, I know I was voting for a REVOLUTION. Couldn't help it....must be that degree from UC Berkeley and all those years hating the Establishment.


The surprise was that Trump has turned out to be the best President since Ronald Reagan. A truly magnificent job as President, even as the Elites fight him tooth and nail.



What the Elites don't understand is that they better hope Trump succeeds, because the next anti-Elites President might not be as accepting of their "right to rule" in this country.


This from a legal immigrant to this country with a truck, hunting dog, and a gun that also has a degree from UC Berkeley.


Is this a great country or what!!!

Fox News had him, Glenn Beck, Donald Trump, etc. all calling Obama a gay Muslim Kenyan witch doctor who was bringing back Sharia Law. Joe Walsh basically went insane on TV every night. Now he's sorry. What a joke.

He never did drugs, never smoked, never drank, never cheated on his wife, never got a divorce, had a long history of working with Democrats to get stuff done, etc. And ... he lost anyways. Some would say he looked weak. Others said he looked fake. But these were trivial, pathetic, ridiculous complaints against an obvious genuinely good man. He too was accused of being an evil racist, fascist and the rest of the list of buzzwords. Full disclosure, I supported and voted for Ron Paul, so no I'm not a Romney fanboy pining over poor Mitt losing. Just pointing out facts. America probably should have elected Romney because he was a good decent man and Obama was doing a terrible job, particularly at the time.

Fast forward to 2016. The GOP pre-coronated Jeb Bush. The voters weren't having it. Against non-stop haranguing and alarmism from the GOP elites, they nominated Donald Trump anyways. Donald Trump is immoral, irreverent, feisty, angry, rude, obnoxious, etc. He's the polar opposite of Mitt Romney and he's exactly what you get when nice, decent and respectable are spun by the media as weaknesses and flaws. It's a given that any Republican nominee will be called racist and sexist and all the rest, so now you've got a guy who refuses to tip-toe around things apologizing for every non-PC word or deed. He is the direct result of PC cultural backlash and it probably means he wins again in 2020.
Amen. The trashing the media gave Mitt Romney was my “Chicken Little” moment with the news media. He was a good, decent man who in no way fit the narrative they tried to sell.

Good posting.

Mitt Romney is the kind of guy I would trust to babysit my kids. But when the chips were down, he lost to a very beatable Obama in 2012.

Trump isn't the best guy to ever walk the planet, but he had what it took to beat the democratic machine in 2016. He sent Crooked Hillary into retirement (although she still won't shut that trap of hers), he beat the media, he beat the establishment. The economy is doing well, and we aren't in any new wars, and Trump is doing what he can about illegal immigration. He likely has my vote again next time.

Yes, with the Comey Press Conference/Letter/Russian Interference and a narrow margin on swing states.
