Cartoon: Trump's Ratings Suck... But He Still Has His Base

"The Basket Of Deplorables"

Alan: Here is the context of Hillary's comment about "a basket of deplorables": "To just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic -- you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up."

Republicans Pounce On Hillary's "Deplorable" Remark

When Hillary made her "deplorable" comment, Trump's support was approximately 43% of the electorate. 

Half of that number would be less than 22% of the voting population.

It is an inconvenient truth but Hillary's comment grossly underestimated the actual number of American "deplorables."
