Over 40% of Trump’s support comes from the South. So if you wanna know how long Trump voters will continue to stand by their “Chief” no matter what, then just look to the South’s stubborn obsession with the Civil War.
BTW, I have a distant Southern relative, a suburban municipal court judge, who can tell you the names of all the Confederate generals, and their battles in the Civil War (aka, “the War of Northern Aggression”). But the names of the Northern generals, he never remembers quite so well! ;-p
Oh, and if we’re talking ‘tribal’ stubbornness, let’s not forget how long the Hatfield & McCoy feud lasted…?!
