    Or do people believe a Trump supporter is different? Say if they were a previous Reagan, Carter, Clinton etc.. supporter and listened to them/him, are they now different because they support/listen to Trump?

    So I would suggest you would get through to them the same way you would get through to anyone else.

    But anyone who tries to make others a copy of them will never understand others.

That is not a "fact". It's a bald-faced lie. Yet, the crowd believed it simply because that's what Trump told them. How do candidates for office contend with a voter like that?

    Your thoughts?
    There is no hope for brainwashed people, other than maybe Fox news stop brainwashing them or slowly work to reverse the effects of many years of brainwashing.

    You would think feeling the effects of TRump would maybe wake some people up, but nope, they have been brainwashed to just blame everything on dems, that's their default setting, facts be damned

    There are probably a decent 30% steadfast voters on either side of the aisle that would vote for whomever won the nomination. They are not going to budge. Its the other 40% is where the election is won or lost. They change with the wind.

    Like voting for Hillary would raise her moral conscience.

    of course, Trump supporters are different. It's not about just listening to a speech. It's about taking what ever Trump says as true despite all evidence to the contrary. I'm not aware of any other supporters that do that.

    it's hard not to be critical of the people I see at his rallies. Hard to figure out if they truly believe what he's saying or they just don't care. Either way, it's bizarre. How are candidates suppose to deal with people who refuse to take responsibility for what they believe?

    I suspect you were a devout Obama follower. Despite his shortcomings and policy fails.

    Just like others then that supported other presidents.

    So say someone was an Obama supporter, was disillusioned after 8 years and now supports Trump, are you saying they're now totally different?
