LINK A Complete Psychological Analysis of Trump's Support

This list will begin with the more benign reasons for Trump’s intransigent support. As the list goes on, the explanations become increasingly worrisome, and toward the end, border on the pathological. It should be strongly emphasized that not all Trump supporters are racist, mentally vulnerable, or fundamentally bad people. It can be detrimental to society when those with degrees and platforms try to demonize their political opponents or paint them as mentally ill when they are not. That being said, it is just as harmful to pretend that there are not clear psychological and neural factors that underlie much of Trump supporters’ unbridled allegiance.

Personally, I think there are far more of #4 individuals (“Some Men Just Want to Watch the World Burn.” ) than we may have thought previously.

Good analysis.

I have found two common threads with every supporter of his that I have had a conversation with: their utter lack of empathy for those less fortunate than they are and their belief in numerous conspiracy theories easily debunked.

I definitely see a lack of empathy among the Trump supporters I know.

Not all are racist, mentally vulnerable, AND fundamentally bad people. But two out of three is not good. It is a rare trumpet that I have observed who is not at least one and generally two.

"It should be strongly emphasized that not all Trump supporters are racist, mentally vulnerable, or fundamentally bad people."

Bullshit! They are one of the three listed usually!

"It can be detrimental to society when those with degrees and platforms try to demonize their political opponents or paint them as mentally ill when they are not."

Stereotypes can only do harm as I've met many Trump supporters who ate none of the three.
