Gee I wonder where that polarization came from. How about this to help relieve some media bafflement - From the moment Obama entered office, right-wing conservatives embraced the posture of hell-bent opposition. Recall, in Jan. 2009, hate radio host Rush Limbaugh expressed his hope that Obama fails. One month later, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell proudly embraced Limbaugh at a conservative conference. The fringe rhetoric of far right activists had quickly become the de facto governing strategy of the Republican leadership, as they adopted a posture of obstructionism.
A black man was elected President over a white war hero and a white beauty queen, that signaled the end of the world for these folks and they have been buying guns and screaming the sky is falling ever since.

"But those who support Donald Trump don’t care about his specific exaggerations, insults and inanities. They stay connected to him because he panders to biases on gut-level issues that plague many Americans."

I beg to differ; many love what he is saying because the "gut-level issue" he's appealing to is racism. "Trump enjoys the support of a who’s who of contemporary white supremacist and neo-Nazi leaders and institutions."

The "deep American pool of frustration, resentment and anger" is simple. Working people are being mugged by the rich. Trump is not the working person's friend, but he sure understands how to divide and conquer.
