The $1M dollar question of what does Trump's base (mostly white folks with high school diplomas) have in common with Donald Trump in large enough numbers that they would make up his base?

The answer may be this - after studying the 200 people arrested so far in the January 6th insurrections, nearly 60% of the people facing charges related to the Capitol riot showed signs of prior money troubles, including bankruptcies, notices of eviction or foreclosure, bad debts, or unpaid taxes over the past two decades. These people seem to have a lot in common with Trump: Bankruptcies, being sued for money owed and stiffing creditors.
