The "polls" showed that 32% of the people here thinks Trump is honest. Wow. Where did they take this poll? In an "mental hospital"? What is the matter with this country? Do the 32% not watch any news or are able to read or are totally nuts?
No wonder this country is going down the drain!!
In all countries you will find a minority of the population are blind followers that are drawn to a domineering leader. Trump's personality and skillful lying is addictive to people who are attracted to authoritarian leadership. The more trump lies to his base (think of it as a cult), the more they bond with him.
This same demographic also has a "Glass half empty" perspective on life. Give them $1 million, and they will see it as not getting $2 million. That is exactly how trump presents things to them. Listen to how trump talks, aside from what he says about himself, everything trump communicates to his base is all about things they don't have, or things that have been taken away from them and given to someone else (ie minorities, other countries, etc). He comminicates to them is that he, and only he alone, can get them everything they want, and even more than they ever could dream of having. What he is doing is akin to giving alcohol to chronic alcoholics. It is the worse thing he could do to help them. What it does do is make them more addictive to their worst weakness and dependent on him. He gets more powerful as they get weaker and more dependent.
