Well, he's not a conspiracy nut then, just an idiot who needed some funding from idiots for his idoticness.

There are people whose opinions can be bought with funding.  Lobbyists, politicians, and some TV hosts...  More usually on the Right, as the Left types seem to be more rational

TL;DR: Not necessarily pathological, just an ideology a hundred cognitive missteps in the making.
I'm still going with some sort of diagnosable pathology being involved. Not saying they're dangerous or bad people. Just that they a particular type of bad wiring which causes them to need to latch on to this bizarre belief.

The political parties are not what they were originally.  The Republicans are no longer the party of Lincoln and the Democrats are no longer the party of the Southern Confederates.  They have slowly switched, though Nixon made the change politically successful.
