Why Trump Supporters Like Him

Updated on February 10, 2020

Mike has a keen interest in the effects of politics in our culture. He has a unique way of simplifying complex concepts.


I think I know why Trump supporters like him. It's because he is a fighter, albeit a dirty fighter. But that does not matter to them. Conservatives by their very nature are closed and like to protect their domain. So Trump fights for that. They think he Makes America Great Again by creating an us and them culture: Fake news, enemy of the people, closed borders, and tariffs, just to name a few. Liberals on the other hand are open by their very nature and that goes against everything that Trump and his supporters believe.

Tax Cuts

His tax cuts have benefited the super rich and corporations. So they can invest their money in the stock market; therefore, it looks like the economy is booming. But it is only booming for a select few. The rest of the country is struggling to make ends meet. The unemployed is at 3.2%, but the labor force participation rate is at 63%. That means about one third of the working force that could be working are not working.

His Rallies

But he has taken care of that as well by holding rallies for those who are not doing well. But he creates a circus-like atmosphere for them where they enjoy bashing the other side with him and that makes them feel good, even though they are out of work steel workers and coal miners. They identify with the fighter in him. Little do they realize, he likes them because they are in the states where it is easiest to get the electoral college votes.

The Evangelical Christians

The evangelicals like him because he protects their idea about the end-times and Israel, even though he violates their religious tenants every waking hour of the day, over 16,000 lies and immorality mean nothing to them as long as he protects their beliefs.

Why They Didn't Like Obama

So, I can now understand why the people didn't like Obama, first he was a black president. The Southern Republicans hated that. But they say he led from behind. What they really mean, is they didn't like his hope and change mantra because he was not fighting for America in their view.

The Democrats and Trump

Now the democratic candidates are fighting among themselves like gladiators in the coliseum and Trump, as the master gladiator, is waiting in the wings to take on the victor. Make no mistake, he will use every dirty trick in the book to win because there is nothing more sacred to Trump as winning in anyway and at any cost. I'm beginning to think he is not stupid, but a very cunning person in the fight for him winning. So if you identify with that, then you are probably a Trump supporter.
