To mention his last name would be against my religion, but I just read a fascinating article at Politico.com by Matthew MacWilliams and want to share it.
I learned a new word today: authoritarianism. I still don't know what it means exactly, but it seems that the best predictor of whether an individual supports The Donald for president of the U.S. is whether that person is or is not an authoritarian. If yes, then he's likely to be a supporter. Here's a key paragraph from the article I just read:
"These [poll] questions pertain to child-rearing: whether it is more important for the voter to have a child who is respectful or independent; obedient or self-reliant; well-behaved or considerate; and well-mannered or curious. Respondents who pick the first option in each of these questions are strongly authoritarian."
I'm not sure whether the above link works, or what it leads you to. Here's where I read the article:
Obviously, you're directed to the same place, either way.
I'll be voting for the Democratic nominee, regardless. (If the GOP nominates John Kasich, I might waver, but I'll probably still prefer Hillary or Bernie.) Incidentally, I looked at the poll questions, and I am as anti-authoritarian as you can get. Not surprising, in view of how I view The Donald. Apparently, there are a lot of authoritarians in this country. Scary.
