Stockholm Syndrome is an interesting insight. But I have two reasons for the clinging of support for Mr. Trump.
- Political parties are very forgiving for those candidates who can win elections. Mr. Trump has a very loyal following that will come to the polls, and the R Party has no choice but to follow him. But if the D’s manage to find an edge in November 2020, the R’s will dump Mr. Trump fast.
- When people make their political position clear to their social group, it is very hard to admit a mistake was made. Many Trumplings just cannot change their mind.
