b)The state of the economy
d)His personality..e.g-he was a good public speaker
a) Conservatives (mainly DNVP) who were hostile to the republic and supportive of monarchy or army dictatorship, especially the Prussian junkers, article 48 granting emergency powers, weakness of proportional representation, fear of the industrial elite, the ambitions of Papen and others to control Germany, control of the legislature (Reichstag) the Reichstag fire, prominent anti-Semitism, instability and fighting by the Communists and SA in the streets, the Night of the Long Knives, Hitler's imprisonment and trial, territories lost (Free City of Danzig) which wanted to rejoin Germany, French hostility and attempts to occupy the Rhineland, early success of Italian fascism, hostility towards the UN.
When Hindenburg granted the Nazis power in 1933 due to their success in the elections and their control of the communists they were only allowed two members in government, the rest were filled by DNVP, the main reason for the collapse of this was control of the police and SA, and army became far more important than the government. The Nazis were believed to be the only ones who could provide a political solution which would not cause civil war. The two ministries they had were not even that powerful, the Minister for the Interior did not have the power of the home secretary today for instance, the main strength was the Chancellorship and Hitler's careful political persuasion.
Often ignored was according to Hindenburg's will (by account of his son) Hitler was to succeed him. However this seems like bs given that Hindenburg was known to have shown distaste for him (calling him a Bohemian corporal, he even got the place of his birth wrong, it was in Austria not Czech)
c) stab in the back legend, humility shown towards Hindenburg in public, close connections with the old elite (Ludendorff, Wagner family), academic anti-Semitic writings (Chamberlain), control of the media, anti-Semitism of American industrialists like Henry Ford.
Could go on and update the rest of it but i've written so much already.
