If everyone seems to be so anti-Trump, then who on earth voted for him?

I'm not a US citizen so I wouldn't know but it does seem by reading online comments (here and in other forums as well) that everyone is against Trump becoming the president. Could it be that all Trump supporters are too busy celebrating and have no time to post comments online?

I bet the ballot options were: Hillary Clinton, Not Hillary Clinton and 3rd party candidates. Jokes aside, Trump is the only Republican choice and this guy has charisma someway.

Yeah people tend to follow charisma. But I think he also had financial advantage for his campaign.

I think some people also voted for him because they think him being a Billionaire already means he dont need the money so he wont be corrupting funds.

I think only the Liberals and Hollywood are Anti-Trump. The American media not named Fox news demonized him because they dont want him to win. The religious people rebelled against the media because American media is also demonizing them. Oh his opponent is also as polarizing as him. She have her own shares of controversies too like Benghazi and the rape cases against her husband.

@Madshadi Demonizing religion may have worked for Sweden because it is an Atheist country. It backfired in the US,The religious people of the US is fed up that media always portray them as homophobics, sexists and racists. They felt oppressed by "Political correctness" Also the democrats have a lot of broken promises. It got America really divided.

@CaptAlbertWhisker I think the US is a much more diverse country in terms of having more religious and ethnic groups, as well as people of more diverse cultural backgrounds, than Sweden. That is why a government may get away with demonizing religion, unlike in the US

I voted for him. You'll also find that the poor rural farmers that don't really own computers in the first place are people that voted for him. The only Hillary signs around here were the "Hillary for Prison" signs. Generally all those properly working people that pay taxes won't really be here either, because they don't have time after work to come on. I have an online job so that's why I'm around. Although for most of today I was running around town doing business with the community to help fund a volunteer project that serves as an economic development project (I'm on the council) to attract tourism into this area now that our industry was cut in half. We used to produce glass blocks in my town, but the plant is in the process of being destroyed.

I forgot the word that I was told but it was that to ut him in the white house. If not for those votes it would not be a victory for him.

I heard that a lot of people who were supporting Trump kept their votes quite ...because people who were not supporting him were the ones who were quite vocal about their opinions and that made the Trump voters feel unsafe or something.

Maybe it has also to do with some of Trump's controversial statements? Some people could be cautious to say that they support Trump because of that.

people that voted for him probably think they weren't being listened to and wanted a change.

A large number of people voted for Trump. They are the people who had no say in anything for the last eight years.
