Ally - I added on a few other groups that I know about who support him.
Just guessing though - I think Aardvark knows more from 1st hand experience.
I cannot be held responsible for anything the Americans got up to after August 1970. At that point I legged it and discovered a whole new world. :)

"US death tolls lower than the World" The Axios interview by Johnathan Swan is a fine example of why the President is a complete and total disaster:

Who is briefing him on this? Who is providing the charts? They must be incompetent too. He needs to fire some more advisers.

But that's why 50%+ of Americans love him so much. Why worry about reading problems? He's just like them, but he's rich too. So they could be rich as well.
Sorry if this sounds patronising but it's human nature. Maybe he exploits it.
That explains it a bit but I don't understand why people don't want someone they can have a bit of respect for. I want (need?!) politicians to be intelligent and preferably not rich. Americans are weird!
Americans are weird? If you have ever spoken to a Boris loving Brexiteer you might think the Brits are even weirder.

See the new Biden advert. It’s very sharp and to the point and has already rattled Trumpy. Why, because it about the economy. How Trumpy inherited a growing economy from Obama and Biden and, like other things he’s inherited Trumpy has destroyed it.
Makes it difficult for Trumpy to focus on his economic achievements.

Is that true though? And was it ever so?
He only won 46% of the vote in 2016 and he's no more popular now. The most recent polls would bear that out.
It is easy to be misled by our so-called democratic system of voting.
Remember only 17.4 million people voted in favour of Brexit out of a population of something like 60 million.
You don't have to have a proper majority to win a vote these days.

Under 20% of the American population voted for Trump
Just over 25% of the American electorate voted for Trump
Fingers crossed there's less apathy on November 3rd.
