They targeted those (voters) who were prone to conspiracy theories and impulsive anger.

Remember Cambridge Analytica and their psyops campaign for trump? 

snipped:
"We also pulled Facebook profiles, looking for patterns in order to build a neural-network algorithm that would help us make predictions. Cambridge Analytica would target those who were more prone to impulsive anger or conspiratorial thinking than average citizens, introducing narratives via Facebook groups, ads, or articles that the firm knew from internal testing were likely to inflame the very narrow segments of people with these traits. CA wanted to provoke people, to get them to engage."
