A Tenth of Trump Supporters Will Be Disappointed If He Wins


I’m always intrigued by polls that produce truly inexplicable results, and today we get one from Pew. They asked Trump supporters how they’d feel if Trump won. Most would be happy, but 11 percent would be disappointed or even angry. Among Clinton supporters, 7 percent would be disappointed if she won.

Now, when you get out to the end of the homo sapiens bell curve, there’s no telling what you’re dealing with. These folks might not be the sharpest pencils in the box. Still, I wonder what they’re thinking? That they’re just congenitally disappointed and will stay that way no matter who wins? That they’re supporting a candidate they don’t like? They they didn’t really understand the question? What’s the deal here?
