    If you include the under employed and those who shifted to long term disability SSDI because of two years of unemployment, 15% of adults are unemployed. Include the people stuck at low part time hours, unemployment is 20%. And Clinton says "bring in more immigrants, legalize the illegal aliens here to work" who disproportionately take jobs from the native born working class.
    The Republicans tolerate the illegal immigration and support HB-1 visas to lower wages, while Democrats support it to get more Democrat voters. They ignore the tens of millions whose wages have dropped due to competition or unemployed because of preference for immigrants over natives.
    Trump's talk on the economy, bringing jobs back, deporting the illegal alien who took your job - speaks to these.

    Well Adan, I think most of Mr. Trump's worshipers/followers are too young to realize that most of the people who fear Hillary Clinton had embarked on a smear campaign that began before they were born and all they know is what has been drummed into their heads for the past thirty years.
    Remember when President Obama was elected, these same people who campaigned against Hillary for over 30 years and could not bring her down are the same ones that did everything they could to, as Mitch McConnell said make him a one term President, and these people have done a very effective smearing of Hillary, so much so that many of the Thump supporters are choosing him as a vote against her.
    Be sure to read Newsweek tomorrow.

    Tired of the establishment?
    Tired of Washington ignoring the people's will and doing whatever their donors and lobbyists tell them to do?
    Because of Washington's march away from nationalism, toward globalism, and global corporations being more powerful than the nation that is well under way?
    The march towards a 2nd world economy, lower wages, higher unemployment, and little upward mobility or opportunity for Americans is real.
    People get it, they look at the last 10 years and they see their neighbors lose their home to foreclosure, they see their other neighbor lose their job to an H1-B visa immigrant, and they see their Health Care costs double since the implementation of Obamacare and no amount of rhetoric, no amount of media bias can make that disappear.
    How can the economy being doing great, and unemployment be at 4%, when half the people you know are struggling to find good paying jobs and pay their bills?
    How could anyone believe the crazy promises Clinton is making, that college is going to become free for everyone... when we can't pay for what we have now without running up 2 Trillion dollars in National Debt every year?

    People support Trump because he is NOT a politician.

    People support Trump because he is NOT the liberal left. 

    People support Trump because they have no better alternative.
