Any more than that?

Personally, I don't understand how the Turks are flocking to Erdogan. He's taking it away from a democracy yet is now more popular than the first President of Turkey, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.

Wiki quote:
As the president of the newly formed Turkish Republic, Atatürk initiated a rigorous program of political, economic, and cultural reforms with the ultimate aim of building a modern and secular nation-state. He made primary education free and compulsory, opening thousands of new schools all over the country. Turkish women received equal civil and political rights during Atatürk's presidency ahead of many Western countries. His government also carried out an extensive policy of Turkification trying to create a single, united and largely homogeneous nation.The Turkish Parliament granted him the surname Atatürk in 1934, which means "Father of the Turks", in recognition of the role he played in building the modern Turkish Republic.

He took them from a Caliphate to a modern state that shared similar traits with the West.

Erdogan is un-doing all of that. Especially post 2013 he's turning into an Islamic dictator yet the Turks want him in power.
Leace them to it but never let them join the EU. Such a country is incompatible with European values.
