Does this Website accurately explain the psychology of a Trump supporter?

https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/mind-in-th...

It identifies 5 key personality Traits of Trump supporters:

1. Authoritarianism

2. 'Social dominance orientation', which I interpret as 'supportive of bullying'

3. Prejudice

4. Wanting to stay in their own little clique (site calls it 'intergroup contact', or lack thereof)

5. 'Relative Deprivation', which means they're jealous of those they consider equal or inferior, but have achieved equal or greater success.

Update:

Certainly this could apply to someone of any political party. We are all individuals, after all. But these personality traits are supposed to dominate in Trump supporters.

Update 2:

I like the idolatry/Cpac answer too.

    Inability to  face the truth.   They will reason   that  Trump cheated on his three wives and TAxes makes him  a great leader who will tell it like it is when it is completely false.
