NYU students who back Trump afraid to show their faces

They may be flooding caucus rooms across the country, but Donald Trump supporters at NYU keep their heads down, mouths shut and their correspondence secret.

Lying in class about their political beliefs and keeping online conversations strictly private are typical precautions taken by The Donald's badly outnumbered followers on campus.

"Supporters generally try to keep it hidden from the rest of the student body," said junior Dylan Perera, 22. "They're afraid of losing friends, being ridiculed in class, getting worse grades and are even afraid of being assaulted and physically hurt."

The computer-science major from LA said he was verbally accosted by a student who had asked about his affiliation.
