UPDATE: Mitch McConnell is voting to acquit Trump.
The party of Jeff Flake is dead as a doornail.
“A CNBC survey conducted in the days before former President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial finds a large share of Republicans want him to remain head of their party, but a majority of Americans want him out of politics.
The CNBC All-America Economic Survey shows 54% of Americans want Trump “to remove himself from politics entirely.” That was the sentiment of 81% of Democrats and 47% of Independents, but only 26% of Republicans.
When it comes to Republicans, 74% want him to stay active in some way, including 48% who want him to remain head of the Republican Party, 11% who want him to start a third party, and 12% who say he should remain active in politics but not as head of any party. …
The poll shows Trump retains strong support among Americans without college degrees, a key demographic for the GOP: 89% of the group want him to remain in politics, including 52% who want him to stay head of the Republican Party. That’s the highest percentage of any group, and a potential warning sign for Republican Party leaders should they choose to vote to convict Trump. …”
Idiots have been focusing all their wrath on Donald Trump and debating “Trumpism” as a disembodied abstraction instead of thinking in terms of actual voters migrating between the two parties. Disaffected Trump voters have been nursing these resentments for thirty years.
