The Derogatory Nickname We Should Be Using To Describe Trump Voters Is...

TRUMPSHIRTS

I had 25 people vote on my Survey Monkey poll, and the winner was Trumpshirts with six responses. Ignorant Hater Bastards of an Emotionally Stunted Demographic was in second place with four votes. There were 11 Other options that ended up in the Comments, but I didn't have a common offering there. There were some inventive ones like Trumpaccia (Italian for horrid Trump) and Trumpenproletariat, but I wasn't too keen on Trumpaphiles because the use of -philia in the name is too positive a connotation, eh?

I'm sorry, Infidel, but Trumpolines just wasn't winning anybody over. :( I didn't think Gateway Pundit's Trumpkins stood much of a chance, IMHO...

I'll let Driftglass know he won. He will receive a firm handshake and friendly pat on the back for his victory.


In the demographic breakdowns, I didn't get many self-identifying Republicans to partake of the poll - funny, I'd figure the pro-Rubio people I know would want to vent a little - but I did get one Green and five NPAs to balance out the 19 Democrats who showed. I'm personally disappointed my older brother Eric didn't show up to be the lone Libertarian polled: dude, that hurts.


The chart for ethnic demographics showed very little diversity: a lot of White voters, one Asian, one Middle Eastern, and not enough Middle Earthers. How did I get two Extraterrestrials from doomed planets, I ask you...

The remaining question - "Will you vote this election cycle" - was a unanimous YES. I got good readers to this blog. THANK YOU! GET THE DAMN VOTE OUT.

I'm OK with Trumpshirts. There are lots of results for that term and "Trump shirts" on Google Images. That's the good news. The bad news is that an actual Trump militia, the Lion Guard, only lasted a couple of days before shutting down. Mind you, it would be worse if they were still around, but then I could point out that they have a name copied after a Lion King sequel cartoon. If that wouldn't have been enough, I'd have alerted Disney to see if they'd go after them for copyright violation/trademark infringement. That would have been hilarious.

OH GOD. Disney versus Trumpshirts.

It wouldn't even be a fair fight. Disney is just a steamroller when it comes to copyright protection.

YOU DO NOT F-CK WITH DISNEY. They've gone after day care centers for GOD'S SAKE.
