How many Trumpsters actually buy stocks?

Trumpís base says they still support him because the stock market is doing well. The pundits say if the market crashes Trumpís base will abandon him. I call bullshit.

Most of Trump's base doesn't play the stock market, have a portfolio and most likely have no 401K and are living paycheck to paycheck.

They support him unconditionally because he's a cruel racist who makes life miserable for brown skinned people and hates the same people they hate.

That's why Trump got elected in the first place. It wasn't about the economy or stock market which were already doing well under Obama. It was because Trump promised to build a wall, ban muslims and stop brown skinned immigrants from entering the country.

Honestly the strong economy is just an excuse for Republicans (aka Trumpublicans) to keep voting for this white nationalist and his cruel policies. If a recession hits before November they'll still vote to re-elect him.

The media needs to get real and stop trying to normalize this Grand Wizard and his cult of followers.

1. Welcome to DU.

Over 80% of common stock is owned by the top 10%.

Trump ran as an open racist, and he did so because the GOP only succeeds by motivating racists and suppressing the votes of younger and non-white voters.

4. Probably over half his base thinks the stock market IS the economy.

They aren't the smartest tools in the shed. Just tools.

5. I think you'd be surprised how many wealthy people support him.

His base may seem like uneducated yahoos, but those are just the ones you see.

7. I know a couple of them.

They love, love, love his tax breaks. Makes them a lot of money. It sickens me that they donít care about the damage that ass is doing to the country and our status around the world.

9. They would have got tax cuts with any Republican President

Like Rubio, Bush, Cruz or Christie. But instead they chose the white supremacist with no government or military expertise to be our Commander in chief. I think the majority of his supporters aren't doing any better financially now than under Obama. They're just happy that no refugees are being allowed in the country and that they can feel superior as white people again.

10. There are a lot of working class people that are invested

through their work pension plans. Besides that, if Trump tells them the economy is wonderful they will believe it even if they are standing in a soup line. They aren't all ignorant, some of them are quite intelligent but they are just plain mean and hateful.

11. I would guess the same percentage as the nation as a whole.

Lots of folks have 401Ks. Many of the white blue collar workers in my company support trump and are 401k accounts thru work.
