As a "W", I don't feel obliged to answer the above questions directly. I would like to add to the above some thoughts on analyzing the idea that some items, as polled, are actually code phrasing for underlying deeper issues.

"Make America Great Again" seems to be a key to unlocking the emotions of those who feel left out of the new emerging technologically based economy.

"Climate Change" and it's denial, is not so much about ice cover in the Arctic as it is a debate about the economics of a big change in energy, the jobs that underly those economic choices and who benifits thereby.

For example, here is a debate between two different visions of Wyoming, in terms of energy:
"Republican legislators recently introduced a bill that would essentially ban large-scale renewable energy in the state."
"a 2,000 megawatt wind farm in Wyoming — and yes more specifically and super ironically that would be Carbon County, Wyoming."
