The one weird trait that defines a Trump supporter is...
Authoritarian inclinations.

"Since the rise of Nazi Germany, it has been one of the most widely studied ideas in social science. While its causes are still debated, the political behavior of authoritarians is not. Authoritarians obey. They rally to and follow strong leaders. And they respond aggressively to outsiders, especially when they feel threatened. From pledging to “make America great again” by building a wall on the border to promising to close mosques and ban Muslims from visiting the United States, Trump is playing directly to authoritarian inclinations."

And for those of you who don't know what authoritarianism is:

This also explains some of the fanaticism of a Trump supporter. You guys think Obama is bad? You haven't seen anything yet. Trump would make us the 'New China'.

...and the worse part of this is, Trump supporters will see this as a good thing.
The first step in preparing a nation for war is to demonize the enemy and rally support from the public.

The enemy must be viewed by the public as truly horrific. Only then, can the government unleash destruction against another people without backlash from the masses.

These events have been scripted, publicized heavily and will be used as the justification.

Re: The one weird trait that defines a Trump supporter is...
This guys sums it up perfectly in one paragraph.

Conditions are ripe for an authoritarian leader to emerge. Trump is seizing the opportunity. And the institutions—from the Republican Party to the press—that are supposed to guard against what James Madison called “the infection of violent passions” among the people have either been cowed by Trump’s bluster or are asleep on the job.

The other trait we have in common is our dislike of POS like you!

I very aware of the circumstances around Tyrants rise to power. What you neglect to mention is these are the same circumstances that also precede revolutions!!!!

We Still have the second amendment, We are not even close to what you describe above.

You should be in school right now!
- It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brush fires of freedom in the minds of men.
- The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil constitution, are worth defending against all hazards: And it is our duty to defend them against all attacks.

Or they could be sick and tired of lawyers and career politicians that do nothing but lie. steal, cheat and murder by way of a legal system that gives them the "right" (A legal system they created, no conflict of interest there).

What Trump is, is a response to this statement ;

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Trump is just a reflection of how the majority of people have been feeling since the 90's.

That's where the 'Conditions are ripe' come in. Trump is just capitalizing on it.

Re: The one weird trait that defines a Trump supporter is...
I stand firmly behind the idea of a representative repulic.

However, history shows us that the quality and qualities of the people in government has more to do with the welfare of the people than any form of government.

While a republic of moral people led by moral civil servants represents a near ideal scenario I would take a compassionate king over a tyrannical legislature or a wise dictator over a democracy of fools.

Am I saying I will bow to Trump? I'd die first. But sometimes a strong man is needed to right the wrongs of inept men.

Yeah, because no one before has compared any group they hate particularly to Nazis. Wow, so clever. So OP proudly displays this article comparing Trump supporters to Nazis and then gets his feathers ruffled when Trump supporters respond.

This is like third grade level baiting - its so weak and predictable just like people who read Politico and take it for gospel.
