The Trump Coalition (Poll Data As Reported By The NYTimes)

It's sadly not surprising.

From The NYTimes:
A new set of public opinion survey results asking atypical but timely questions has shed some light on the Trump coalition. The results suggest how Mr. Trump has upended the contemporary divide in the party and built a significant part of his coalition of voters on people who are responsive to religious, social and racial intolerance.
Some data:
Nationally, the YouGov data show a similar trend: Nearly 20 percent of Mr. Trump's voters disagreed with Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation, which freed slaves in the Southern States during the Civil War.
Then there are the 38 percent of Trump's voters in South Carolina who wish the South had won that war.

I'm thinking they have some pretty clear ideas as to how to "Make America Great, Again."  Am I right?

William F. Buckley would've been appalled.  And to any rational Republicans left in this country, you should be, too.  This is your mess to clean up.
