I have more than a few friends who do. While they fit a stereotype of the GOP base (rural, white, guns...etc)

They are really good guys. Educated, reasonable, and good company/conversation.

They support anyone who isn't a D.C insider. They didn't like many, if any of the GOP candidates. They got swept up in the Trump speak, of the FEW times Trump made some sense and took that as full evidence that he'd be different.

My friends just don't want business as usual. They hate Clinton, but they hate Jeb! too (though different levels of hate).

Having the system come crashing down is worth it to them. In their mind, rebuilding is a chance to get it "right".

It's tunnel vision, it's narrow and simple minded. I disagree with them, and for the most part emphasize on the frustration with our government.

But to see it destroyed, and the millions, perhaps billions of lives that would be affected by a horrible, HORRIBLE foreign policy, a possible default on debt.....

It's not worth it. I do believe there can be incremental changes for the greater good with Clinton. Will all the evils of the world be solved? Not a chance. But progress, even if a little bit, is still better than none at all, and much better than going backwards.

Where the pro-gun, 2nd Amendment folk ever in danger of not voting GOP?

My own observation, and it's quite ironic as it's been a GOP staple for a long time.

They have had very little success in life. They are middle class at best, yet yearn for the riches. They want a fair chance at glory, and while they do work hard at their jobs, there really isn't advancement. Some of them have kids as well, and they want a system that works for them.

We heard for years from the GOP that the "poors" should just lace up their bootstraps and find work. If it doesn't pay well enough, then get more education and/or find a better job.

It's also a fear of a changing dynamic. White people will no longer be a majority, and the image of the good old days will disappear with it. While I don't think my friends are overly racist (at least they have never shown more than the casual joke....), it's changing of the guard.

Not sure people are ready for that.

30 years of electioneering, a good while now.

Sounds like a conspiracy theory to me

Doesn't Trump advocate killing the families of terrorists? Should this guy be killed, then?
