Most people that voted for Trump were some combination of racist, sexist, xenophobe, homophobe, etc.

If you assume that they all were, you will be correct the vast majority of the time. I am sure there a a few that weren't....somewhere.

1. If one tolerates a racist, etc., they "is" one.

2. yep, and if you want to change their mind/get their vote, you can't use reason

The only way they will vote for a Democratic candidate is if that choice somehow appeals to their hopes, or assuages their fears.

Such as "it's the economy, stupid." Which "it" always is in a sense, but that's not all it is.

In my opinion, the common denominator is Fear, and the Republicans have consistently leveraged that to their advantage, including a longstanding campaign to create more and greater fears amongst the easily manipulated, who are already bigoted in some way or another, as you say.

Statistically speaking, everyone who voted for the Idiot Treason Clown is bigoted and fearful of some "other" who they think is going to take something from them.

4. No doubt about it.

 

You are completely correct by using the word most. Overwhelming majority would work as well.

5. Agreed. There's another thread maybe in reaction to this or vice versa saying SHITLER voters are

not ALL racists/etc, plus that some of them had previously voted for OBAMA, to which I say that if they are not (ALL of them) some of these odious things that there is something ELSE wrong with their view of the world and that flipping so wildly from OBAMA to SHITLER is an aberration of rationality.
