    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Samuel 15:6

    So Absalom stole the hearts - His manner of doing this is circumstantially related above. He was thoroughly versed in the arts of the demagogue; and the common people, the vile mass, heard him gladly. He used the patriot's arguments, and was every thing of the kind, as far as promise could go. He found fault with men in power; and he only wanted their place, like all other pretended patriots, that he might act as they did, or worse.

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Samuel 15:6

    Stole the hearts - i. e., deceived them, for so the same phrase means Genesis 31:20, Genesis 31:26.
