It's 2016 and election season is in full swing. Trump lives on, stronger than ever. But who are his voter types? Here’s 8 different types of voters who want to make America great again.
First Time Voter: These people should not be considered voters yet since they’ve never voted in an election before. They are ride or die for Donald, and feel he’s the guy who they can relate to. They are sick of these elitists controlling the media and wealth in America, and want someone who speaks like them: the billionaire. They may not have a second choice, so if Trump doesn’t win, they may be fleeing to Canada. Let’s just hope Canada doesn’t put up a wall.
Celebrity Apprentice Fan: These are the voters who circle the shows they want to watch this week on their physical copy of a TV guide. They work hard and watch TV even harder. When they go to the gym, they make sure to go mid-day when they can watch the “Wendy Williams show”. I’d fall into a celebrity apprentice fan grouping, but I also liked watching Rugrats as kid, which begs the question, Tommy Pickles in 2016?
Sick of political correctness: They want someone who says something like “mosques should be surveilled, and possibly shut down. They want someone who say things from the gut, regardless of whether it’s constitutional or not. These people tune into Jake Tapper’s show on CNN just so they can tweet at him about how he’s a Trump hater for questioning his claim that “thousands and thousands of muslims were cheering in New Jersey when the Twin Towers went down on 9/11”. That being said, these people do appreciate Jake Tapper’s hair. It’s not as good as the Donald’s, but it’s respectable.
The Ignorance is Bliss Voter: Donald Trump has said factual things and makes some great points, including what he has said on campaign finance, but on a few important issues that have rallied his base, the less you know, the better. Instead of looking at facts such as net migration of immigration falling below zero and immigrants committing less crime than native born citizens, they want someone to tell them what they want to hear, regardless of how factual the claims may be.
Tech Savvy voter: No one can deny Mr. Trump’s tweeting skills. His two am rants are what I live for. In addition to his fights on twitter, sometimes he spits straight up fire as well. He once tweeted if Hillary Clinton can’t satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America?” Which makes me wonder how he satisfied his first two wives.
- Get Money Out of Politics: Despite Trump having the most money out of all candidates, he has rallied against Bush and Rubio for being controlled by their donors. Combining his portrayal of Bush as a puppet and low energy, Bush saw his poll numbers diminish. Trump doesn’t have a super pac, so if you want someone who can’t be bought off, you can either vote for Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders. Or Kanye?
Fathers who may find their daughter too attractive: “You know who’s one of the great beauties of the world, according to everybody? And I helped create her. Ivanka. My daughter, Ivanka. She’s 6 feet tall, she’s got the best body. she does have a very nice figure. I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.” (ABC’s “The View,” March 6, 2006) The quotes tell the full story her.
Trump is leading in the polls still, and while I have been glad he’s brought up the issues of money in politics and some common sense approaches to policy, it does worry me that so many people would vote for someone who says things like we should ID muslims, kick 11 million people out of the country, somehow in a nice way, will rant tweet about anything any site says about him, but expects to be tough with Putin and other leaders moving forward. When he says bomb the shit out of ISIS, we have been “bombing the shit out of ISIS, to a tune of 8,000 air strikes in the past year. Maybe Obama needs to start talking like Trump, or least get the hair going. Either way, his success tells us a lot about the frustrations of the American people, so the last voter is….
“Fuck it I quit. Make America great again!”
