I certainly did- and it wasn't for Trump that is for sure. But my point was the mindset of the people who DID vote for him. I live in a "Red State" where his sort of voters are the majority. I hear them talk all the time about how "bad" Hillary (and Obama) is, while blindly ignoring every cringe-worthy comment and social blunder from their "golden boy". It's disheartening to say the least. And most of them are from the older generations, or those too young to know better because they grew up in an age where fact-checking is too much work and politicians are automatically "bad" even when they really are not. So he won on a technicality based on misinformation and disillusionment. The religious right and the pro-gun, anti-gay, anti-abortion, anti-immigration crowd.
