    And there are a lot of people who genuinely believe Trump is a great negotiator and smart manager that have magical means to give them better-paying jobs and cheaper health insurances. They also genuinely believe that things can't be worse than typical politicians and they have nothing to lose.

    People can believe in anything. Faith in Trump actually had a stronger justification than most religions for example.

    I missed this before, so.

    Yeah, the number of people who say they voted for Obama is higher than the number of people than actually voted for him and pollster's always find that when they ask those questions. But that doesn't mean that mis-remembering your actual voting history only cuts in that way, it just shows that motivated reasoning can even lead to them not remembering who they voted for if it helps them to think that. I'm just guessing, I don't have any data to work with here, but I'd bet that if people had voted for Obama twice and wanted to vote for Trump but was held back by the inconsistency of it would just convince themselves that they actually never voted for Obama at all.

    My sister voted for Bush twice and ditto for Obama. That blew my mind.

    But, I know for a fact that she didn't vote for dipshit Trump.

    I told her that her vote for Hillary put her in the minority among white female voters, and that blew her mind.

    Even in Georgia and Alabama, abortion is not going away for wealthy white women (and far more importantly, it will still be an option for wealthy white men who impregnate even non-wealthy, non-white women) and that’s all that matters.
