Trump's own staffers are tanking his chances in 2024

I don’t think there has ever been a past president who has engendered such little loyalty from his inner circle (yes, I’m counting Richard Nixon). But never mind presidents. How many people have you worked with who think you’re unfit and unstable?

I’m guessing that number does not even approach Trump’s.

The good news, for those of us who can’t fathom another four years of Trump, is that so far—thanks to the way they’ve been conducted—this seems to be slowly making a dent.

Those quixotic few who are still hoping for a dramatic, “Have you no sense of decency?” moment are destined to be disappointed. Instead, what we have seen with a year-long accretion of evidence is an almost glacial movement away from Donald Trump (akin to Homer Simpson disappearing into a bush). Rather than rebuking him, rank and file Republican voters who stray will likely continue to espouse their love for him, even as they move on to someone new (such as Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis).
