I'm not saying that a cult of personality couldn't form on the left. But, who might be a candidate to fill that role?\n\nWhile Trumpists may self-identify as conservatives, I think you're correct in that many - if not all - of them conform with the conventional definition. I'm not an expert, but it seems to me that cults generally coalesce on a specific person - Trump, in this case.\n\nOn the left - which includes groups that self-identify as such or groups that have been "consigned" to that spectrum, regardless of their views - you have social progressives, economic socialists and combinations of both, in kind and degree. That's the 10,000 foot view. Zoom in, and those categories can be subdivided into a practically infinite number of sub-categories.\n\nI may be wrong, but I don't think there is such diversity of views on the right. You have conventional conservatives and Trumpists. You can probably subdivide those groups, as well, but I don't think their nearly as diverse as groups on the left.\n\n\nNah, it is well known (by published research over many years) that US liberals are far more focused on policy than person compared to US republicans.
