Standards and Expectations of the American President: Trump Supporter Survey

Since Trumps Inauguration I have been trying to crack the puzzle of his supporter’s undying loyalty. Despite his lying, immoral, hostile, self-serving, unstable, and incompetent behavior patterns, the loyalty survives and thrives. So these are questions that I think all Trump supporters must answer to help them self reflect on their blind devotion.
