29. They don't pay attention, and refuse to believe negative news about him

That is the bottom line. I have two relatives and several friends who qualify. A few neighbors.

They turn out the news at times like this, other than FOX. You'll never get any of them to sour on Donald Trump. Just the opposite. They champion him at every opportunity.

I post on many sports sites. In recent days and weeks they have been listing Trump's so-called accomplishments. I got warned by administrators on one college football site when I mocked the Trump clan and posted the devastating realities.

Last week I attended an LPGA/celebrity golf tournament in Orlando. There were MAGA hats all over the place. I overheard a few of the celebrities boosting Trump...primarily baseball players and also one country music star. Every time I attend a golf tournament it is a jolt toward how the older white crowd is steadfast behind Trump. I really wish our strategists had attended some golf tournaments in spring 2016, as I did. They would have walked out of there stunned, and not taken any of those midwestern states for granted.

37% is fine. He can't win from there, even if the actual exit poll approval would be at least 3% higher. In fact, that's a good way to gauge things. Take the 538 compilation and add 3%. That's what Trump's approval among the electorate would be if the election were held today. Overall approval is lower than among people who will show up.
