Donald Trump isn’t the president anymore.
What effect is that having on his voters though? Are they becoming more radical with him gone? In my view, Trump was always a soothing influence on them. They literally “trusted the plan” and went to sleep for four years. It is obviously the Democrats and the media who radicalize people with their extreme rhetoric and now Rip van Winkle has woken up and Joe is the president and MAGA is over.
“Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), who’s said he may vote this month to convict former President Trump on an article of impeachment, is pushing back against possible retaliation from the Nebraska Republican State Central Committee by warning that his party must choose between “conservatism and madness.”
Sasse on Thursday released a five-minute video responding to Republican officials back home who want to censure him at a Republican State Central Committee meeting on Feb. 13 because of his criticism of Trump.
He warned that purging Trump skeptics from the GOP is “not only civic cancer for the nation [but] just terrible for our party.”
Sasse, who didn’t support Trump’s candidacy in 2016 or 2020, dismissed his critics in the state party as “angry about life” and out of step with regular Nebraskans. …”
Here are my predictions from October 2019:
Nailed this one.
We are now in the post-Blumpf era.
We’re off to a strong start with Arizona and Georgia flipping into Blue States.
It is these last two predictions which I am watching in the Biden era.
