      Yes, but those Europeans were driven by the feeling that they had 'lost' a war and had been 'losing' long after it was over because of the changed circumstances that it had caused for their nations, right into the arms of those strongmen. As for American fear, I'm not sure if you are referring to anger at the Great Depression or anger at Pearl Harbor. Anger and fear during the Great Depression made Roosevelt an obvious anti-incumbent choice, the way it smoothed Obama's path to the Presidency after the onset of the Great Recession. He was already President during Pearl Harbor and it made the choice to go to war easy. The closest analogy might be public opinion being swayed in the opposite direction to what it would be normally move, might be widespread support for the Iraq invasion after 9/11, but that isn't perfect either. What I'm saying is that many people who would naturally gravitate towards Trump because of all those reasons I mentioned (centrist and left of center independents, dispossessed mid-western and Appalachian union workers, and the remaining blue-dog democrats), but won't because of party loyalty, or concerns about the tone or substance of some part of his message will be much more easily persuaded to vote for him if they can be convinced that his exclusionism and fear-mongering are shown to be justified, or even necessary for the immediate future. It needn't be something as big as 9/11, but could be something as small as another Boston or San Bernardino. In times of fear, people everywhere are more concerned about the safety of self, family and country, rather than appeals to their better angels. That's just a fact of the human condition, and Americans aren't immune to it. I'd say that under the right conditions, Trump with his ever malleable positions, and a spruced up public persona, would appeal to even some of the Bernie bros and girls.
