A new poll shows that Trump supporters are finding it hard to publicly support the President.

They are backing his policies, but are scared to admit so in public because they fear the backlash from the out of control left.

According to a Zogby Analytics poll, nearly 2 out of 5 Trump supporters are scared to publically admit their support.

Just to give you an idea of how bad it really is, when you compare people who said they support Antifa to people who support Trump policies – 58% of Antifa supporters said they also support many of Trump’s policies.

This is what is referred to as “cognitive dissonance.” That should not be happening, unless people are just too scared to say what they really mean to strangers via email or the phone.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Nearly four in 10 voters silently support President Trump, but don’t ‘fess up to their friends or pollsters,’ according to a new survey.

Zogby Analytics found that 38 percent admitted that “even though I tell people I do not approve of Donald Trump, I personally agree with him on certain issues.”

Another 53 percent disagreed, and 9 percent were “not sure,” said the poll, provided to Secrets.

The results both reinforce a view inside the White House that support for Trump is higher than public approval polls show and raise new questions about the accuracy of those same polls if people are not going to tell the truth.

This is a rather sad revelation about America today – the liberal media has made being “pro-Trump” dangerous, at least in the minds of many Americans.

In fact, many self-appointed liberal groups have started “doxing” conservatives. Meaning they actively seek out those who have attended conservative rallies, then harass them and try to have them fired from their jobs.

It’s no wonder people don’t want to publicly support the President.

For its part, Zogby Analytics said that Trump’s approval is holding steady at 44 percent. Another 53 percent disapprove of his job.

“Does this show the potential for a ‘silent Trump supporter,’ or anyway dispute his approval numbers, or reinforce the problem with polling in general in the 2016 presidential election?”

This is an interesting question.  Despite all the polling that showed a Hillary presidential landslide, she was still trounced.  Will the silent Trump majority work again in three years?

 It’s hard to say for certain, but it is worthy of continuing to track and delve into. On the surface, if almost 40 percent of voters are afraid to tell people they might approve of Trump or agree with his policies, maybe there are some voters who are afraid to tell pollsters they support him in a horserace question, or approve of his job as commander in chief,” said the analysis.

“With the entire backlash from certain anti-Trump voters and the continued divisiveness in this country, it’s not hard to imagine people being afraid of admitting their support of Trump, even if it’s telling a stranger by way of email or telephone. At the moment this is something we will continue to track and keep an eye on,” added the poll analysis.

It identified those most prone to be a silent supporter:

Among groups that are more likely to lean Republican or support Trump, they were most likely to agree they do not openly share their support for Trump.

Voters who are Republican (58%), NRA members (51%), Veterans/Armed forces (48%), NASCAR fans (54%), voters who earn $50k-$75k annually (51%), and most surprisingly 58% of those who say they sympathize with ANTIFA, all agreed with the idea they tell people they don’t approve of Trump but secretly support some of his policies.

This is the most interesting part of this poll. When 58% of Antifa supporters are saying they also support Trump policies, then one really does have to wonder if their fear of the political left and possible backlash has forced Trump supporters to go “underground”.
