I don't understand how this can be a viable statement. While I reserve skepticism for polling procedures and ridiculous media bias, the reality is that there's a significant population within the population that supports these goons. THOSE supporters are the body of the Republican who have been following such a divisive narrative from these "kind of people" up until this point. Don't get me wrong; yes, these candidates are denounced vehemently by their respective institutions, but the reality is that they're reaping the benefits of what they've sown. Only now do they see the power of such a narrative over time.
