Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Not that I would want to defend something that is not genuine political analysis including careful crunching of the numbers, but when Scott Adams says Alpha male there, I suspect he means those that are also pretty ape-like in their (lack of) thinking.

Which is still not to say that getting 90% of them is likely. But I can see a lot of the "in your face" types of people voting Trump. Chris Cook has a "friend" called Robert Chandler who is a prime example of the attitude I am trying to describe, probably not very successfully.

Quite a lot of people like to divide the world between winners and losers, and quite a lot of them are clearly not winners, but prone to believe the suggestion that the reason why they are not is that they have been cheated by someone or something - this is a cohort that can easily be fooled by someone like Trump.

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed. Gandhi
