I think you mean simple-minded rather than "good", which is subjective. Simple-minded means the superstitious and religiously driven people who are not individualist thinkers. Not that I respect or use the false IQ test as a measure of intelligence, it may indicate levels of vitality and imaginative creativity so is not entirely useless as a measuring system, and these followers of leaders or religions could be said to have low IQs.
The simple -minded as you say are not malicious and as a mob they can perform compassionate acts in the name of the collective good. This was basically the initial desire of Trump supporters, their simple-minded concern and support for a leader who promised good outcomes but did not deliver. This is not fascism but a tragic mistake by a non-intellectual horde seeking a nostalgic renaissance of the rapidly diminishing American traditions.
