Query: Just who are the Trumpsters?
This is a serious question. I just read on one of the threads that one of our more prominent Trumpsters claims he is NOT a Republican. I seem to remember at least one other poster not too long ago also saying pretty much the same thing.
So, if Trumpsters are not members of the official two big parties, where did they come from?
Are they T-partiers who are now centering all their allegiance with Trump? Or going back even earlier, are they left-over Ross Perot supporters who have been free-floating for some time but finally found a home with Trump?
One group I'm certain they do not claim for their ancestry is the evangelicals since, as a couple of these non-Republican Trumpsters have insisted, they are not religious at all.
Maybe they have been fringing around some white superiority groups and saw Trump as their chance to finally enter the mainstream with him?
Any one else have any ideas from where the Trumpsters came? I just don't believe they are an entirely new group that suddenly sprung into existence in 1915-16. They are too well-informed (especially on passive-aggressive tactics against opponents) to be naïfs who just awoke (politically) a couple years ago.
They must have a history.
ETA: I'm excluding conservatives as an answer also--since Trumpster's don't believe in or practice fiscal restraint and other such conservative commitments. Trump's tax cut for the super rich is the exact opposite of fiscal restraint, after all.
