There are a huge number of Republicans that support Donald Trump. That support is reflected in the fact that the President usually maintains an approval rating over 40% despite numerous controversies.

Wilson closed by gleefully saying, “We expected this ad to hit. We did not expect him to behave in the completely maniacally way he behaved all day today, but here we are
