I assume these GOP Trump fans come from two camps.
The first is the Know-Nothing Quarter. These are the 25 percent of Americans (and 50 percent of Republicans) who willingly believe any fantastical, scary version of reality they are fed by Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck or online conspiracy-mavens. These are the 24 percent of citizens who still think Saddam Hussein was responsible for 9/11. The half of Mississippi Republicans who believe interracial marriage is evil, The 48 percent of Iowa Republicans who don’t think Obama is an American.
Apparently, these socially conservative folks are willing to forgive Trump his serial trophy wives because he so boldly and unapologetically spouts the same crazy things they talk about with their friends at gun shows and mega-church potlucks.
The other group of Republican Trump fans (which overlaps broadly with the first) is the libertarian faction. These are the people who resent paying their tax dollars for all but the weakest social safety net because they imagine the recipients of government aid as nothing but lazy, shiftless slum-dwellers and brown-skinned immigrants with anchor babies in tow. Some of them are rich, most are just aspiring to riches and they just want to be left alone to enjoy their money without being made to feel responsible to any human being outside the perimeter of the vast lawns surrounding their MacMansions.
Donald Trump’s coalition of bullies, bimbos, birthers and the brainless.

Aún así, Mrs. Palin defiende a sus compañeros republicanos...
I have the good fortune of knowing both John McCain and Donald Trump well. Both men have more in common than the today's media hype would have you believe. Both blazed trails in their careers and love our great nation. Sen. McCain dedicated his life to serving our country, and in my humble opinion the sacrifices made by all ethical service members are heroic – putting it all on the line to defend freedom IS heroic – and Donald Trump is a hero in another arena. Trump is the candidate giving voice to untold millions of fed-up Americans witnessing a purposeful destruction of our economy and the equal opportunity for success that made America exceptional. We're watching career politicians throw away our kids' future through bankrupting public budgets and ripping open our porous borders which, obvious to all us non-politicians, puts us at great risk. Everywhere I go, hard-working patriotic Americans – not "crazies" or "wacko birds" – ask me to pass on to Mr. Trump encouragement to keep educating the masses about true ramifications of illegal immigration, and in general the real state of our union. I encourage both leaders to resolve the media driven wedge between them, and we can keep the debate focused on significant issues at hand. I leave politics of personal destruction to those on the Left and lazy media lapdogs whose only take away from any debate is any salacious slip-up, as if they've never wanted to restate something they've publicly uttered. I'll fight the exhausting, divisive strategy that's taken hold under the current crop of politicians who refuse to allow our United States to unite. Both Mr. Trump and Sen. McCain can contribute their gifts and talents to join that fight to work together, because the Left is headed the other direction, and under their desired division we will fall.

In the case of Trump, he may interrupt, say outrageous things, fling insults or directly challenge opponents. The object of his aggression has to be willing to respond without seeming peevish or defensive, but neither can he simply ignore the bait. One of the things voters are looking for is a sense of command. Who is going to stand up to Minority House Leader Nancy Pelosi or to the liberal attack dogs at a news conference? If a candidate can't handle a buffoon like Trump, he will be overwhelmed by far more sophisticated adversaries. So here's some unsolicited advice...
How to handle a bully like Donald Trump

Si este señor gana la presidencia que muchos you are fired! vamos a escuchar en el gobierno federal. ¡Qué bueno! a ver si las cosas mejoran, porque hasta ahora sólo están empeorando para los que creen en la democracia, en la república, las libertades, el cristianismo, en el verdadero capitalismo y el libre mercado.
