A Third of Trump Supporters Would Ban Gays from Entering the U.S.—And Other Insane Beliefs

They're also in favor of the WWII internment of Japanese-Americans...still. 

The three-ring circus we're casually reffering to as the 2016 election is still happening--it's been going on for four years, but that's neither here nor there--and Public Policy Polling (PPP) released some interesting numbers about what's going on in the mind of American voters. And by "interesting" I mean "terrifying" and "depressing."

While Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are leading in South Carolina, Trump's supporters there have some very definite ideas about 'merica:

-70% think the Confederate flag should still be flying over the State Capital
- 38% of Trump voters say they wish the South had won the Civil War
- Trump is the only candidate whose supporters actually wish the South had won
- By an 80/9 spread, Trump voters support his proposed ban on Muslims entering the United States
- 33% think the practice of Islam should be illegal in the U.S.
- 31% would support a ban on homosexuals entering the U.S.-- no more than 17% of anyone else's voters think that's a good idea. Meanwhile, people actually think that's an idea.

To put the mores and values of Trump's supporters in context, PPP adds that 32% of Trump voters continue to agree with the policy of Japanese internment during World War II--also known as like the third worst idea in American history. Easily top five.

Of course, this is all based on Trump's supporters in South Carolina, who are just a hair crazier than his supporters everywhere else. If you need a reason to clench your fists in fury once more toda, check out the rest of the PPP poll here.
