I'm now genuinely curious.
If you support Trump, what is your level of education?
Education does not always = intelligence
Trump supporters are pissed,that's for sure
because an advanced degree in chemistry makes you totally understand politics ...
Ironically I have an advanced degree in the social sciences. Not a PhD though (yet)
Not questioning that. It's just Trump's comment on loving the uneducated, and the media's response that his followers are mostly uneducated.
@Meister An advanced degree in chemistry suggests you can read and comprehend news, and not just accept someone's opinions as fact.
Masters Aerospace Engineering and design cool stuff that breaks the bounds of gravity for a living.
I wonder what this same poll would say about Democrat voters. Well, not really. Political support is generally ideology driven and has little to do with education. I mean, Obama got elected and the media is stupid so there is that.
It does. Notice that it includes both for and against Trump. Because you can't possibly be suggesting that there are Republicans who oppose Trump. /sarcasm
Except your question posed is directed at Trump, so it has bias.
being a doctor sure made carson think he could be a politician. or trump the business man.
All facts are opinions.
I have dealt with plenty of people who had no formal education and with people who had PhDs with distinction from Ivy League Universities. And having an advanced degree in anything does not miraculously give you the ability to see through deceptions. It also doesn't make you a better or worse person.
Trump loves the uneducated, because there are a lot of them and he needs their votes.
All politicians count on the uneducated because there are a lot of them and they need their votes.
The weird thing about Trump is he is pulling suporters from all over. Smart, dumb, rich, poor. There really is no instruction manual for who Trump supporters are.
No, facts are facts. They're undeniable things. It's the facts we choose to accept and how we interpret them that's opinion.

They do have one thing in common: they're all scared people, riding things out in uncertain times.

Agreed, the earth is round, that's a fact. Hillary is a dirty corrupt politician, that's a fact. People still believe otherwise.
The biggest issue isn't that Hillary is a dirt, corrupt politician. It's that she's YOUR dirty, corrupt politician, proof of your sides low standards and acceptance for BS. You people will believe anything.
My guy? He's pretty alright. All the accusations that have been thrown his way concerning his character and dealings are nothing more than baseless attacks by an agenda driven media.
Our choices for president are dumpster a, or dumpster b.
And which one when set on fire won't explode to badly.
This is true of ALL politicians. Let's not pretend it's unique to Trump. Let's also not pretend that the dems are importing permanent democratic voters who are uneducated from Central and South America and parts beyond.
Voter ID laws aren't about keeping minorities from voting. It's about keeping illegals from voting. Hillary would love to get as many illegals voting as possible.
This, right here, is a reason why there's a 27% Crazification Factor in the population.
The New York Times has an article that addresses this very question.

Your "perfect" Trump voter: An unemployed Evangelical high-school drop-out, living in a trailer.
I have a Doctor of Pharmacy (6 year PharmD program after high school) with a minor in psych (aquired through summer classes) and a board certification in clinical psychiatric medicine (+2 year residency). Graduated magma cum laude.
I guess I lean more fiscally conservative, socially moderate. There is no way in hell I'm voting for Trump. I will raise my right hand right now and pledge "absolutely not".
The whole point is to make Trump supporters look like racist hicks. Well I'm a non white, immigrant, educated Muslim when will vote for Mt Trump.
Man, for a second I thought you wrote "Cruzification factor". Clicked the link thinking Whiskey Tango Fubar, and realized I'd misread it.
Or maybe not.
So you prefer the candidate who is going to continue spending on the welfare and warfare state which will most certainly guarantee our bankruptcy in the future?
The one who is socially moderate only when it's politically expedient?
As a hard core libertarian, I'm voting for Trump because it's the closet thing to "None of the Above" there is.
Oh, I'm sure you are !
While engaging in cheap innuendo, might want to ask that question only to people from Alabama, then to Hillarys support base.
I'm not sure about Trump supporters, but look at this Bernie one./s
Good poll but I think you also need to include the most likely option for Trump supporters who never even went to or completed HS.
