English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. supporter

    An adherent is one who is devoted or attached to a person, party, principle, cause, creed, or the like. One may be an aider and supporter of a party or church, while not an adherent to all its doctrines or claims. An ally is more independent still, as he may differ on every point except the specific ground of union. The Allies who overthrew Napoleon were united only against him. Allies are regarded as equals; adherents and disciples are followers. The adherent depends more on his individual judgment, the disciple is more subject to command and instruction; thus we say the disciples rather than the adherents of Christ. Partisan has the narrow and odious sense of adhesion to a party, right or wrong. One may be an adherent or supporter of a party and not a partisan. Backer is a sporting and theatrical word, personal in its application, and not in the best usage. Compare ACCESSORY.

    adherent, aid, aider, ally, backer, disciple, follower, partisan

    adversary, antagonist, betrayer, deserter, enemy, hater, opponent, renegade, traitor

    Adherents to principle; adherents of Luther.

How to use supporter in a sentence?

  1. Mitt Walker:

    The Trump endorsement still matters in Alabama, president Trump was and continues to be a tremendous supporter of farmers across the country and especially here in Alabama.

  2. Bill Gates:

    This is not about trade, no one is a stronger supporter of capitalism and trade than I am. This is about sovereignty and whether a country has the right to set its own public health policies.

  3. Chas St. George:

    This is a time when we’re all rebuilding and reassessing, we know that Exxon Mobil is very much a proud supporter and a proud part of the Iditarod. That will never change.

  4. Marco Rubio:

    He's a supporter of legalizing people that are in this country illegally. If he's changed that position -- and certainly he has a right to change his position on that issue -- but he should be clear about that, on other issues regarding immigration, he's not that much further than I am. He wanted to double the number of green cards. He wanted a 500% increase in the number of H1B visas. So everybody running for president on the Republican side in one way or shape supports some form or fashion the legalization of people that are in this country illegally.

  5. Hillary Clinton:

    As a lifelong Planned Parenthood supporter, I'm honored to have the endorsement of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, there has never been a more important election when it comes to women's health and reproductive rights -- and Planned Parenthood's patients, providers, and advocates across the country are a crucial line of defense against the dangerous agenda being advanced by every Republican candidate for president.
