I absolutely believe that the 42% who approve of our president are rejecting reason and the higher faculties and are "lizard brains". 1984's "double-think" comes to mind as well.

Amen! They have been dumbed down and don't have the reasoning power to think for themselves.
The socialist program in the school system has left them with no skills in listening nor debate.
1984 and A Nation of Sheep exemplifies their condition.
I am America’s amygdala. I reside in the temporal lobe of the human brain, near the hippocampus. There are two of me in each normal human brain, and we are both shaped like an almond, after which we are named. I am part of the limbic system. At the risk of oversimplifying things (which, by nature, I do not mind doing), I will tell you that I am the part of your brain which deals most directly with the production and processing of fear. I am in charge of America at the moment, and have been for some time.
