The coalition now aligned against Trump shares something. Many, if not most, profit from human misery. At the same time they are isolated from the effects of human misery themselves. This is doubly true for the most vocal among them.
They are rarely individuals who produce things. They are not those who raise crops, fish, ranch, extract minerals, work in factories, or engage in construction. In large numbers those folks support Trump. Those who oppose Trump are not the men and women who repair machinery or maintain our infrastructure, haul goods, collect the trash, or clean our streets. Again, the folks with dirty jobs largely support Trump.
They are not those who protect others at peril of their own lives: the military, firefighters, or police. Some of those running those institutions – the ones with desk jobs safe from the consequences of being on the sharp end – oppose Trump. Most of those who actually risk their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, each day to perform their jobs will likely vote for Trump.
