Almost 20% Of Trump Supporters Think Ending Slavery Was A Bad Idea

They say there are more horse’s asses in the world than there are horses. And what we’ve learned recently is that Trump’s dirty little secret has been getting the former to register and turn out to vote and the results are scaring everyone.

According to a January YouGov/Economist Poll nearly 20% of Trump supporters did not think that Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation was a good idea. With his vocal views about Muslims and Mexicans, it’s not surprising that he’s playing to the lowest common denominator. After beating Ted Cruz and Mark Rubio by more than 20 points in the Nevada caucuses, the scary part is that it’s actually working.

This must’ve been what racists felt like during Obama’s first campaign. The only difference is that back then there was humanity on our side.
