Fran (left) and Marv Kirschner have met many of the 2016 Republican presidential candidates, but Donald Trump is their man. They say he’s captured their hearts and their vote.";

We’ve heard a lot from Republican candidate Donald Trump since he announced his bid for the presidency.  Trump is buoyed by a rising legion of supporters: people who want to help Trump make America not only great again, but “bigger, better and stronger.”

This week's Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting delves into the hearts and minds of these Trump supporters. Who are they? Why do they support Trump? And if The Donald doesn’t get the Republican nomination for president, who will they turn to next – if anyone?

Monday at 11am.
