@9, Bullshit. There are polls that will tell you the exact same thing about Democratic voters and Hillary Clinton but you do not see Democrats or anyone else bending over sideways to distance themselves from the person they chose to be their nominee.
Trump is the Republican nominee because most Republicans who voted in the primary voted for him. Trump is hostile to immigrants and the media and supports tax code that benefits rich people, and these are all well within the mainstream for Republican voters. You don't have to dig too deep into conservative commentary to find people who want to build a wall and purge everyone without papers. Their gripe is chiefly with his unvarnished style, mostly because they know it will cost them an otherwise winnable election, and quite possibly an entire generation of voters, but their underlying beliefs are in complete alignment with Trump's.

@55, Both charts are visualizations of actual voting data compiled by a non-partisan organization. There was a precipitous decline in turnout around the turn of the 20th century but there is no evidence of a significant decline since. I like to think that data speaks for itself but I guess people can see things that aren't there if they really fight for it.
Of course young people could brought into the process, but it's much easier to appeal to established voters. As they age they will become more engaged (see, data).

The presumption of innocence is a matter for the court of law, not the court of public opinion. Out here, corroborating complaints from multiple women are enough, at least for some people, and banning someone from performing at a comedy show is a perfectly fair substitute for prison. In an ideal world, rape victims would feel safe and supported by the justice system, and that's where he would be right now. In the meantime, we'll have to settle for this.
Amy Schumer, otoh, is several degrees removed from the guilty party. She's not the problem, though her friend is a serious asshole.
