According to the media

1st the right was a basket of deplorables
Then they were Russian spies
Now they are Nazis

i don't even know how you can think this situation is funny

racial tension in this country is out of control and your boy Trump is just fueling the fire

but i guess it's just liberal propaganda and the kkk and nazi members were actually actors paid by soros

Taking comment out of context

I have said numerous times kkk and neo Nazis are scum of the earth

And they make up about 0.003% of the population

I said the media, try to read what I actually said.
welp, no one said all the right wingers are nazis (most obviously aren't)

no one said the right wingers are russian spies

and pretty much only HRC said the trump supporters are deplorables


i'd ask where you got this "information" but then i'd just get a youtube of alex jones as a response

The Southern Poverty Law Center hasn’t counted the members of the so-called “alt-right.” A press representative tells The Daily Beast that they’re not aware of any nationwide surveys designed to count them.
However, they estimate that the KKK counts between 5,000 and 8,000 members nationwide. Back in the 1920’s, when cities across the south were erecting monuments to Confederate generals, the Klan had 4 million members. As Roger L. Simon points out, this would be an impressive decrease even if the population of the U.S. hadn’t swelled since the 1920’s. Back then, the Klan constituted about 4 percent of the entire U.S. population. Now, the KKK is near its nadir. That would make them less than 0.003 percent of the population, even on the higher end of the SPLC’s estimate. “It’s a small group of real bad people,” Simon writes

Rondo, there are several excellent Republicans who are upstanding citizens with great morals and true leadership.

Why don't you pick one of them and back them instead of a historically deplorable and inept politician in Trump, who in practice is hurting everyone on both sides?

Well, this small group of terrible people is overtly supported by Trump, likes Trump's policies, and recently has even said so; You seem to fully stand behind Trump was well and thus support the same language and policies.

One of the better questions of the thread....Best guess is that he's addicted to drama, conspiracy and various media, a soup which upstanding Republicans don't fit into (being controlled as they surely are by the FBI deep state types...Trump and Trump alone is the Bat Man character who can take on something as evil as deep state and FBI conspirators).

I'll post again the David Brooks editorial about the anxious void in people that gets filled by delving into Conspiracy theories and or joining hate groups.

perhaps worth injecting here that a group of horrible people can support a non-horrible person and a non-horrible person can support the same person that horrible people support.

Members of the alt-right literally just marched through Virginia chanting along "blood and soil" and "[censored] the Jews".

The event was Unite The Right, and attracted alt-right followers from around the country. This was not a KKK rally. It was an alt-right event.

Nobody has to "try to tie them". They literally publicly marched together. The LEADERS of the alt right are white supremacists. You can call the followers whatever you like, but they marched in line behind white supremacists. Period.

well, since we're talking Trump, he's a horrible person, not a "non-horrible" person.

granted, some non-horrible people voted for Trump.  I can't fathom why since he proposed a lot of dumb and horrible things during his campaign so it does make you wonder.  I can't understand how he still gets any support from anyone at this point.  he's every bit the disaster that he was projected to be by those that opposed him.  And I do mean him.  I'm not saying opposing Republicans or their policies, but specifically him.   

If ever there was a case where voting the party line should have been put aside and people should have voted with their heads regarding experience and stability over partisan politics, this was it.  This clown never should have lasted in the republican primaries, nevermind winning the electoral college.

Did you see his most recent press conference?

Are you still planning on voting for him in 2020?

What is the general feeling of other Trump voters you know? (i.e. do you think they still support him as strongly?)

Didn't vote for president this year due to terrible choices.  Voted on all other measures just left president blank. 

If presented with similar choices in 2020 will do the same thing. 

If we switch to popular vote and my vote mattered in MA i might change my opinion.  Hillary was the less offensive choice in 2016 i just couldnt bring myself to vote for her.

That is a good point about voting in MA. I was a Bernie supporter in the primaries, then voted against Trump (by means of voting for Hillary), but it's hard to argue with the idea that my vote didn't matter after the primary ended.

To be clear, I asked those questions because although Trump's approval seems to be slipping overall most of the change has come from the left and the center. I want to know if those on the right are considering changing their mind on him. I know Roy voted for him, but is no longer supporting him.

I take people's party affiliation into account when I think about those who didn't vote. If you are conservative and didn't vote then you hurt Trump, if you were a liberal and didn't vote then you hurt Hillary (although what state you are voting in effects that opinion)
