For Most Trump Voters, ‘Very Warm’ Feelings for Him Endured
Pew Research, Aug 9, 2018

In the wake of Donald Trump’s 2016 election victory, an overwhelming majority of those who said they had voted for him had “warm” feelings for him.

By this spring, more than a year into Trump’s presidency, the feelings of these same Trump voters had changed very little.

In March, 82% of those who reported voting for Trump – and whom researchers were able to verify through voting records as having voted in 2016 – said they felt “warmly” toward Trump, with 62% saying they had “very warm” feelings toward him. Their feelings were expressed on a 0-100 “feeling thermometer.” A rating of 51 or higher is “warm,” with 76 or higher indicating “very warm” feelings.

The views of these same Trump voters had been quite similar in November 2016: At that time, 87% had warm feelings toward him, including 63% who had very warm feelings.

Feelings?

That's the problem.  Too many vote based on "feelings," not whether the candidate can do the job. 

And I don't mean just Trump supoorters.  I see it all over.  Republicans, Democrats.  They "feel."  They don't think.

'Warm feelings' means nothing to me.

My relatives from the old country still had 'warm feelings' about Hitler too.  In-laws are still gushing about Obama.

Screw Godwin's law - the fact remains that 'warm feelings' always exist among those mesmerized by a cult of personality that they ascribe themselves to, no matter the amounts of idiocy or horrors involved.

Too bad, it means something to the voters.

Yet @Applewood  if the report was about Trump supporters turning cold toward the President, you'd be doing a happy dance.

Exactly.

Which is why I never underestimate the stupidity of mass movements.

You underestimate everything you don't understand.  It's what seems to keep you busy.

I understand mass movements just fine thank you.

It is indeed what keeps me busy, because idiocy in large numbers is a hallmark of cultures, empires and nations in decline.

I guess 'feelings' was a poor choice of words because it sounds too emotional.  You know I wasn't a Trump fan until the election and I wouldn't call my opinion of him 'warm feelings' but I like him and I think he's doing the best job possible under the circumstances.

The article is simply saying that Trump voters still like him and would vote for him again.

I've encountered too many cranky, disgruntled people today.  Not sure what would make them happy.

Truth has to be repeated constantly, because Error also is being preached all the time, and not just by a few, but by the multitude. In the Press and Encyclopaedias, in Schools and Universities, everywhere Error holds sway, feeling happy and comfortable in the knowledge of having Majority on its side.

Facts don't care about your feelings.
No matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God.  We must love each other, show affection for each other, and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry, and violence.  We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans.

Racism is evil.  And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans

I love that your Quixotic mission to bash Trump 24/7 like a mental patient hasn't done a GD thing.

Watching people fail gives me a warm feeling.

Well at least we won't ever have to feel 'upset' by you leading one.
