The question of precisely which segments of the Republican base are responsible for insurgent candidate Donald Trump’s dominance in the polls has been answered, and the answer isn’t pretty — but it’s really not surprising.
By a significant majority, Trump’s supporters consist of the relatives you’ve been forced to block on Facebook because you’d finally seen enough pictures of President Barack Obama’s face superimposed onto the body of a chimpanzee or suicide bomber. Public Policy Polling’s latest national poll found that 66 percent of Trump’s supporters believe Obama is a Muslim, compared to only 12 percent who believe he’s Christian. (How soon they forget Jeremiah Wright!)
