11. The people backing Trump are mostly not voters. Link:

A new study has found that many of Trump's supporters won't be able to help him when it matters the most.

While Trump continues to pound his chest, a new study by the analytics company Macromeasures might rain on his parade, as Forbes reported on August 14.

Of Trump's 3.2 million Twitter followers, only 39.4 percent are eligible to vote. Macromeasures eliminated followers under the age of 18, and those residing outside of the United States. Trump's eligible voter rank is the worst of all Republicans with a presence on Twitter. While only 39.4 percent of Trump's followers could actually vote for him, six other Republicans have over 90 percent of eligible voters as their followers. On top of the list is Carly Fiorina, with 95.7 percent of her followers eligible to vote, with Ted Cruz, Scott Walker, Ben Carson, Mike Huckabee, and Marco Rubio following behind.
