    Like him or not, and  I didn’t particularly, but did like his policies;    he was the only one standing in the way of Dems achieving their one party dictatorship and destroying our country.  There are radicals who have infiltrated the Democrat party. Now that they have a good  start on their one party dictatorship we will see power struggles within the Democrat party as the radicals try to take more power away from moderate Democrats.

    Ordinary working people are being impoverished and made homeless by the super-rich. Dems no longer look out for the interests of working people. so such voters look to the opposition. But Trump was not really opposition.  GOP = DNC, though, and Trump-a-dump didn't help working people a bit.

    Trump pandered to the white nationalist base.... the morons and idiots who feel whites are becoming the MINORITY. 

    Those are the people who LOVED him......racists, and closeted racists......

    the same idiots carrying Confederate and NAZI flags,  and dreamed of their  4th Reich.  Proud Boy morons,  with all their racist Tats. 

    Those are the people that were willing to DIE for Trump.....proving just how batsh*t insane they actually all are.

    Similar reasons to why Obama was so popular, cult of personality. Not that Biden will be any better, but at least you can say it's not his personality that got him elected.

    Trump panders to the lost common denominator and those people respond because they identify themselves with this ignorant, bigoted ratings

    Because many of us like low taxes, low unemployment, low food and gas prices, a booming stock market, a secure border, fewer illegals, conservatives judges on the bench, and putting Americans and American companies first.  In short, we like everything that he stood for and everything that he accomplished prior to COVID.
