Pfft, these are Trump supporters you're talking to. They still think 5 million Mexicans voted in 2016 and Trump actually won the popular vote. These are people who lie about the weather in actual footage we can watch. They're shameless and fact free.That is part of Trump's appeal yes even if its just smoke and mirrors since he has never been an outsider. But that doesn't answer my question because even with delusion that an openly corrupt businessman could somehow be an outsider his approval ratings were still consistently low, and he still never won the popular vote. Ergo, he did not have the support of the people behind him. Now at worst the media could theoretically scew the polling on Trump's approval ratings somewhat to the negative, but they cannot lie about Trump's bad record at acquiring the popular vote.
