Trump Voters Are Not Immoral | The Resurgent

Trump Voters Are Not Immoral | The Resurgent:

Trump voters have legitimate grievances. They see Republicans making promises then breaking them. They see Barack Obama extending the powers of the Presidency while the GOP fails to constrain him. They see a Republican Party that refuses to fight. They see family and friends addicted to drugs, their lives crumbling, their jobs going away. They see a national government imposing one size fits all morality upon local communities.
They are eager to push back against growing liberal efforts to homogenize national culture, opinion, and values. They believe their local communities are under assault.
Many of them sided with Trump because he looked most eager to fight back. They made their decision emotionally and will live with the consequences.
There are other Trump voters who look at Hillary and Trump and have concluded that come hell or high water the odds are better with Trump than Hillary for change in Washington, though they know there is no guarantee.
They are not immoral and they have reason to support him. They see Republican efforts now to oust him as confirmation that the GOP rejects them and their issues.
