The alt-right is a huge mishmash of conspiracy theorists with a lot in common. Now that includes Donald Trump. The problem is, Trump is not just an awful theory, like the idea that Sandy Hook was a left/government plot (1M pgs) similar to human-animal hybrids (5M pgs). His chance of taking the presidency is better than your chance of losing at Russian roulette (Nate Silver). And you probably don’t want to take that chance. So you need to know what the heck you’re up against. First, who are they?
One simple test will identify most of them. Twenty-nine percent (29%) of Americans think Obama is a Muslim. Virtually all of these will be Trump supporters. That’s about 70% of his supporters. But some of his alt-right supporters don’t believe this nonsense, so perhaps 75% to 80% of Trump’s support is alt-right.
