So, most people are naturally apolitical. I believe they can be forced to care about politics but even then, I don't think that turns them into one of the zealots. Rather, I think they get into politics with the goal of having an "exit strategy" which will allow them to go back to not having to care about politics anymore.
So people who are against the pillaging are still against it and people who are for it are still for it. But what about those who were apolitical about it? They will likely want whatever is the quickest and easiest fix. And I think that Trump and the usual "law and order" or "jobs not mobs" dialogue is what can offer that.
Based on your post, I would assume that Trump is going to lose almost any black person who voted for him, and a lot of fence sitters. Mostly because of the whole “refusing to denounce a cop killing an unarmed and handcuffed man.
Trump will solidify his hold on racist killer cops, and people who apparently look the other way when cops kills unarmed people, but focus intently on property damage.
There is a crack in everything,
That's how the light gets in...
