Are you a Trump Supporter or not?

Updated on April 4, 2016

I recently saw a segment on Fareed Zakaria’s Global Public Square show on CNN where he interviewed Jonathan Wieler, a professor of political science from the University of North Carolina.

He and his colleague, Marc J. Hetherington have written a book titled: Authoritarianism and Polarization in American Politics. As a result of their field research analysis, and study, they have found that the U.S. is split into basically two camps of values and beliefs, those who have a need and a world view that requires a form of authority and order and sees most political issues in terms of black and white, with very little gray areas and nuance. The other camp has a need and world view of seeing and requiring less order and more nuance and gray areas in political issues . He suggest that these two needs are what have been dividing and polarizing our political parties. They found by asking four questions, about what would be expected from your children’s behavior, can suggest what your chances of supporting Trump are. It does not matter whether you actually have children or not. It is about what you expect from children whether you did have them or not.

Here are the four questions:

What behavior do you expect from your children?

      Brad: What's your point? Are you attacking me? Most of the poems and recipes that are posted less word than my article.

      I scored a zero% and a likely Trump supporter. It seems accurate to me...

      How did HP published this as a hub it only has 223 words in it?

      It is just a place to bash Trump who at this time wasn't president? These comments are just rants.

      "what have been dividing and polarizing our political parties"

      The answer is the both parties are diametrically opposed and there is no common ground from them to compromise.

      Yes I'm in Fontana. Yes, I've been to Plancentia several times. Your words are jolting because when one group thinks they no more than another, they talk down to them. I'm waiting to a response to your comment!

      Diane: Thank you so much. I'm honored that you asked me to do that. I will do my best. I have to admit I get addicted to these forums, even my own. I think we are neighbors. Do you live in Fontana CA.? I live in Placentia CA.

      It reeeally made a difference when you provided input on my question. Please continue. I'm trying to get others to dialog with the truth in a respectful manner. I must start reading some of your many hubs.

      @MizBejabbers - you said, " I see no difference between a child who is considerate and one who is well-behaved."

      A child can be forced to be well-behaved, but they cannot be forced to understand being considerate of the feelings of others.

      Case in point - Trump's kids. They may be acceptably behaved in public, but you can see that they have absolutely no concept of being considerate of other people's feelings.

      Fun quiz! I can see how some people would get confused, but I, happily am NOT a Trump supporter and never will be. Ha!

      Miz; You are right, you can't have one without the other. The quiz is setup so that you have to choose one over the other, because it shows that one is more important to you than the other. if you want a child that is more well behaved than considerate, that suggests that having your child follow rules and regulations is more important to you than having the child be considerate.. It is a small but important nuance. Trump is not considerate of others when he wants to close borders, deport people and bomb the hell out of the mid-east without any consideration of civilians, But his followers love to hear that because it gives them a simple set of rules to follow.

      Your second and fourth paragraphs describe it completely. Radical conservative believe if you don't agree with their values and beliefs, you are UnAmerican. You grew up with a father who imposed his rules and regulations on you to make you a well behaved child based on his values and belief system.

      Miz, just curious about your dad. What part of my statement does he disagree with? I would like his definition of a secularist.

      That is the most skewed quiz I've ever seen. I see no difference between a child who is considerate and one who is well-behaved. You can't have one without the other. I took the silly thing and it said I was a Trump supporter. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

      I believe that today's conservative radicals judge everyone else by their belief system and condemn those of us as "UnAmerican" who do not agree with them.

      Jackclee, my dad, an Atheist could not have DIS-agreed with more with your statement: " secularist are non religious or mostly atheists and believe in relativism and no judgement on personal behavior."

      Believe me, our personal behavior was judged and sometimes punished severely. He voted for the man (at that time it was only free, white, and over 21 males who controlled the country) who most represented the Southern conservative way of life. He was a Southern atheist, maybe that is the difference.

      So do you agree with the Supreme Courts ruling on Citizens United, where corporations have person hood and can donate unlimited undisclosed funds for campaign contributions to super PACs? This was a ruling that included Scalia who called himself an originalist, meaning his rulings were based on what the framers intended.

      Yes and no. You can be conservative and not believe in a supreme being and also you can be liberal and still believe in God. By the way, I am a Carson then Cruz supporter and not a Hillary, Sanders or Trump supporter. I am conservative and Catholic but I do not wish to impose my beliefs on others. I believe in the wisdom of the Constitution and on the democratic process. If enough people voted to change our laws, I have no problem with that even if personally I may disagree with some laws. The problem arises when a few judges, over reach their Constitutional duties and legislate from the bench and make rulings contrary to the desires of the people. Another fact about conservatives that most people fail to understand. We are not oppose to change or "progress", just want to do it the proper way, via the Constitution and the Amendament process. It takes more effort and more time but it will lead to a better result. IMHO

      jackcleee: When someone believes in moral code, doesn't that code give them order that they require in their lives? And doesn't it also give them the view that if that code is not followed then the non-followers are in violation of the code? If you don't have judgement on personal behavior, doesn't that indicate that you don't require or need a code for your own behavior? Conservative tend to be traditionalist and require and need moral codes for themselves and try to impose that morality upon others. While liberals accept and look forward to change and will sometimes violate how conservatives view the world. Isn't traditionalist and secularists just other words for conservative and liberal? Thanks for your comments.

      I'm not sure that is what divides America. I think the two camps are between secularist and traditionalist. Secularists are for government control and traditionalist are for self reliance. Traditionalist are religious and believes in a moral code, secularist are non religious or mostly atheists and believe in relativism and no judgement on personal behavior.
