Do you think Trump's followers feel comfortable with Trump because they're smarter than him?

Asked by Dutchess_III (42248points) July 28th, 2018

This just occurred to me. How did we go from a person of such high intelligence, almost genius, a Harvard graduate, someone who has had so many honors bestowed upon him because of his intelligence, to a bloviating, moronic wind bag who barely graduated with an associates degree, and who feels the need to brag about his own intelligence because God knows, no one else is.
In fact, I can’t even remember any Trump conservatives ever saying that Trump is intelligent. Do you think it makes his followers feel superior?

A majority of his supporters are more honest than he is, and also more moral. At least I hope so.

Republicans belive that goverment is not capable to lead the country. They keep proving that right when they get in power.

Just heartbreaking and disturbing to hear a trump supporter say she did not go to college that’s why she believes what she sees on Fox News.

With enough time and calm engagement this 75 year old lady I talked to at the YMCA could probably be swayed to vote For Democrats.

Well, I think that even if I hadn’t gone to college I would still be smart enough to see through Trump.

^^ Generally most humans’ psychology is quite vulnerable to manipulation. Just ask the Russians.

So you think going to college makes one less vulnerable?

Some might be smarter, but do you honestly believe that Trump could be elected without the dummy vote?

Smarter than him and dumber than everybody else.

Of course he wouldn’t have been elected without the idiots.
