Even though the candidates for president are unappealing, it is difficult to understand how many voters say they are for Trump. It is likely most are to be found in one of the following categories: politicians with such malleable ethics that they can say with a straight face that they will vote for Trump but they will not support him; people who are not either aware of the situation or who have not thought it through; people who don’t have the capability of rational thought. Unfortunately nothing can be done about groups one and three, but the people in group two are probably salvageable if they inform themselves.
