Numerous believe that the falling survey numbers for Donald Trump are a step of his mishandling the coronavirus pandemic to the point of catastrophe or his divisiveness in the face of a racial crisis.

His loss of consistent exposure to the public has actually meant his fans would separate enough to see reality for themselves.

Shared psychosis catches the syndrome-like intensity, but is a misnomer because it often does not involve actual psychosis. Folie à deux, or “madness in 2,” is possibly the most favored but a foreign phrase. “mass hysteria” explains well the crazy quality that occurs from the sharing of symptoms amongst crowds, but often does not really involve symptoms of “hysteria”, or histrionics. The essential feature is that mental symptoms are not restricted to the person; they take hold and spread across social borders, just as they initially take control of one portion, and then eventually the entire of the mind of an individual.
