A concern that is bigger than Trump

Seeking the attention he desperately needs, Trump went to Iowa on Friday for a rally.  It was no different from his campaign last year.  The audience was his, they were into his rants, they enjoyed his assaults on the media, they reveled in his attacks on the Democrats and anything that popped into Trump's mind.  The fact is that they enjoy the thought free and free theater.

The people that are enthusiastically at these rallies do not represent a majority of Americans, but they may represent a bigger percentage of people obsessed with one intuitive cause, however difficult to articulate, than any other block of citizens.

Are they more important than Trump?  Could this amorphous group  metastasize when Trump inevitably self-destructs?  Those are questions that need attention by smart people not on cable.
