Rapper and entertainer Kanye West began an online conflagration after he began tweeting support of President Trump, but a new poll shows how many Americans believed the campaign was authentic.
While more than half of Americans believe West made his comments simply to seek publicity, only 39 percent say that they think he believes in what he’s saying.
The CNN poll showed that many more Republicans had faith in his authenticity, 56 percent, than did Democrats, of which only 30 percent think be believed in what he’s saying.
West angered many on the left and thrilled many Trump supporters after he began posting videos of online personalities who were supporters of the president.
“You don’t have to agree with trump but the mob can’t make me not love him,” West tweeted. “We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone.”
You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does. That's what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.

I haven't done enough research on conservatives to call myself or be called one. I'm just refusing to be enslaved by monolithic thought.
