with tRump's MAGAs, or with each others for that matter. Some of them have existed for decades.

Sorry, no click for your poll, tho. To my mind, MAGA-adjacent would have to include some hostiles adjacent from the left and I guessed that wasn't what you meant it to mean.

I.e., since MAGA's a populist movement, adjacent would also include the kind of illiberal, phony "Progressive" populists who called for others to refuse to vote Democratic (like MAGAs) and throw HRC in prison (like MAGAs). They're so "adjacent" that a significant percentage even chose to vote MAGA (like MAGAs). And, of course, some LW extremists "adjacent" enough to RW extremists are prone to violence also, though my guess is most of those just throw in with the much more numerous RWers who bring so much more to it.
