it's hard to argue either way, but i think it's likely that r/asktrumpsupporters attracts those with more moderate leanings than r/altright or r/the_donald.

i've been pretty active in the subreddit these past few days. i'd say there's like 20% moderate population and 80% fairly vocal trump supporters. the conversations don't seem to go well if you batter them with hyperbole or throw rhetoric at them. in particular, there is disdain for news reports and the word "discrimination" - they just seem to shut off, plus they are equipped to throw rhetoric and "fake" news back just as easily.

i've been asking a lot of open ended questions and trying to get them to examine consequences of some extreme policy on their own. don't know how successful it's been, but at least they engage.

I have a coworker who is a hardcore Trump supporter and has found a way to support everything Trump has said or done but after Trump fired the acting AG, I finally got him to say "I can't really defend that, it was unprofessional". So that's a start.

How many times do you wind up reading the word "cuck" in an average day of this?

haven't seen it once. it's pretty well moderated.

also, although the post score is invisible, a post can still be censored via reddit's voting system. since a large portion of the subreddit is liberal, i'd imagine that kind of language wouldn't be very well tolerated.

even if I forget that I hate WHAT he's done, and try to imagine myself in favor of every single one of his changes, I'd be hard pressed to give him anything higher than a C- based simply on how he's gone about doing these things and his general gross display of what being Presidential is even about.
It's /r/ ask trump supporters. How biased do you think that sub is?

Trump supporters are literally Phus of this world. You point out where they could be wrong and they simply argue. It's in their nature. With people like that you simply go "why bother."

Because they're running the country, maybe.
