Which brings us to the impending disaster for Republicans. However bad voters feel about Trump, they will feel worse about Republicans who abetted him for political gain, even though everyone in the country knows they disagree with his ideas and despise him politically.
The Republican Party might be able to ride out Trump’s self-destructive unpopularity if it tried as hard as possible to separate Trump’s brand from its own. Instead it is doing almost everything to join them together.
The party had to choose between dishonor and destruction. It chose dishonor, and with every passing day it looks increasingly likely it will get destruction.
