2. quite a bit of it is that the republican base has been brainwashed to think of democrats as evil

it's absolutely orwellian, but they've been hammering it for decades on hate radio and foxnews that our whole party is evil.

somehow, everything we do is "socialism" and will lead to jackbooted government agents stepping on their necks (and they think this completely oblivious to the obvious irony).

they have no sense of policy or proportion. whatever tax rates republicans propose, that's what capitalism and god and all things good say it should be; whatever democrats propose, that's socialism and evil and will destroy america, which they insist is our true intent. and yeah, they get this over a difference in of 3% in a tax rate.


so they support donnie because the alternative is supporting a democrat, which for them is like supporting the devil himself.

there's zero logic to it, it makes no sense whatsoever, total brainwashing, but for them it's a matter of loyalty and all that's right in the world. they may be disappointed in donnie, but many of them will absolutely never in a million years vote for a democrat.

remember that some of these people have listened to hate radio and foxnews 12 hours a day for 30 years or so.
