Who is Voting for Trump Now?
I can understand identity politics and party loyalists to some extent. Then there are some who are simply racist. But it's official, this guy is a failure. The data doesn't lie. Other countries are doing so much better now than we are in the pandemic. Bottom line: you can BS all your life and get by fine but you can't BS a killer virus during a pandemic.

The reasons for voting for Trump have not changed. Conservative voters got fed up with politicians who forgot why they got elected when they went to Washington. They get caught up in the politics, the political minutia and lose the nerve to do what they feel is right. Many Conservative voters thought they saw something in Trump and thought he wouldn't be prone to that. They turned out to be very right, more so than they ever thought. This is why support for Trump has done nothing but grow since 2016, even by those who are put off by his bloviating antics.
What Trump has done in the last 3 years is turn the economy around, turning it into the strongest economy the country has seen in the last 15 years at least (prior to COVID-19). This has included creating the lowest Black and Hispanic unemployment on record (again pre-COVID). If he knew how to do all this before the COVID shutdown. He'll know how to do it again (hint: Supply-Side economics. Something that was lost on Obama for all his 6 years of "recovery" from 2010 to 2016) if necessary. He has taken on tough problems other presidents kicked the can down the road on for decades. This includes illegal immigration. It includes trade issues with China on issues like American intellectual property, trade imbalances and too much dependency on them in areas like manufacturing, this now on full display due to COVID-19. He pushed through a major new US, Canadian, Mexican trade partnership (USMCA), eliminating a number of problems with the old one (NAFTA). He has taken a very visible stance with the pro-life movement.
Even though the economy, the stock market and American lives in general have taken a serious hit from the coronavirus. The economy is still fundamentally strong thanks to Trump's work over the past 3 years. The market is starting to come back. Although some stocks will be legitimately adversely effected for the near future due to supply chain and travel issues. This fundamental strength is what will help it recover. States are also slowly starting to let business reopen. This is unlike the crash of 2008, where the economy had systemic problems that needed fixing before it could recover.
Trump implemented restrictions on travel from China in January. Liberals called him "racist" for doing so. They were the ones who still hadn't got a grasp of the danger presented by the Chinese coronavirus yet, not Trump.
More travel restrictions from other regions as well as other actions were implemented soon after. Trump has been ahead of the game from the beginning.
The critics CAN NOT explain to save their lives what Trump should have done differently in the handling COVID-19 in any substantial way. If fact, it's now just intellectual/political cowardice on their part. If YOU can't explain why he is a failure, you are an intellectual/political coward too that wants to simply HIDE behind rhetoric you just like the sound of.
