Has Trump lost a lot of the disaffected young male crowd?
I follow a ton of alt-light / alt-rightish groups - people who circulated tons of memes and irreverent/ politically incorrect humour from 2015-2018, and I feel like many of them have drifted away from Trump support into this cynical / nihilistic clown world “it’s hopeless” place. Hopefully I’m wrong and those of you who dabble on other forums still see strong support?

I love Trump about as much as ever but I sense that much of the “edgy” and “cool” factor of supporting him has gone. There are no influencers like Milo and Lucian and other shady online characters (likely by design from our corporate leftists) and it’s mostky earnest true conservatives and Christians who still love him.

Anybody else sense this or nah? Numbers wouldn’t be huge necessarily but that meme culture online was worth its weight in gold. Hope they come around next summer and fall.

Trump will get the Republican nomination. So even if they are drifting away from Trump, they are still going to vote for him over Biden or Warren. The alternative is too dismal to contemplate.

If someone doesn't vote for Trump for the bull shite reason you listed then frick em. There were never believers to begin with.

I've seen some of that, especially on border security.

Actually I think his support is more mainstream and has spread. The lunatics have firmed up his base and have given him a much bigger and broader group to appeal too. He has a success story to tell and concrete plans to benefit most Americans if he will allow that story to dominate. And let the Dems focus on their negative views of America and hate filled rhetoric. That keeps them from putting forth much of anything to peel off support. Since they have extended their hate to his supporters and not just the president.

Yes - border security (which seems legit) and a lot of cynicism about his ties to Israel and interventionism (not legit at all seeing as he has resisted any prodding from neocons and / or Israel towards intervention in Syria or Iran).

I think it's mostly inevitable and maybe they'll come around once we have a Dem nominee.

That's not 100% true.


People said that about McCain.... I refused to vote for McCain.

re: Has Trump lost a lot of the disaffected young male crowd?
I agree that his support is more mainstream. He would have probably won VA and maybe MN if he had this same base in 2016 and everything else remained the same (Hillary, media, etc).

But I still think that "cool" and "edgy" Trump supporter was invaluable for morale and for waking plenty of young people up.

There is a very small, very vocal community of anti-establishment males that coalesce around one or two candidates every major election: Trump, Bernie, Paul, Nader, etc. They care more about being different and against the norm than any specific principles. Many will stay with Trump, but Yang will get the rest. The reddit/Chan crowd love that futurism dystopia bull shite.

I wasted my vote on McCain unfortunately, and now ashamed to say it. I would not vote for a democrat if you had a gun to my head, however.

It’s because he has bent over backwards cucking to Israel, promoted the globohomo agenda, and allowed hordes of nonwhites into the country.

I voted 'for' McCain = my first and last 'hold my nose and vote'.

Actually I voted against the alternative - which is the prime motivator I have for 3/4 of national level elections.

Got to avoid the clearly dangerous and evil.

No, I sense they are busy working because Trump improved the economy.

It's only natural that he'll lose some folks that originally voted for him. Every incumbent does. Rest assured, he's also gained a lot of support from others than didn't vote for him originally.

Had a simple conversation with a secretary in our office before Trump's speech. I said, regardless of whether you like him as a person, you have more money in your wallet, the economy is doing great and unemployment is very very low.

I said "WHO CARES ABOUT THE REST?" Would you rather pay more in taxes? She said "no".

Are these the same types that talk about the boogaloo and big bear Owen Benjamin?

re: Has Trump lost a lot of the disaffected young male crowd?
i won't vote for him. Mostly because he's a narcissistic piece of shite and a liar and i don't like how he can't keep someone in charge of the DoD, he's threatened to remove the current Fed Chairman. He surrounds himself with imbeciles. I don't agree with his isolationist policies or his international strategies. The mexico tariff is the only thing worth a shite he has done.
