“Trump approvers (43 percent of respondents) were asked if he could do anything that would make them disapprove of him. Of that group, 62 percent said there’s nothing he could do to make them disapprove of his job performance. That’s the question media are focusing on to prove how stupid and tribal those Republican voters are.
“But Trump disapprovers (51 percent of respondents) were similarly asked if Trump could ever do anything aside from resigning that would make them approve of his job performance. Guess what: 70 percent of disapprovers said there’s nothing he could possibly do to earn their approval of his job performance.”
So says the inimitable Mollie Hemingway, criticizing the media for framing Trump’s supporters as a cult but not his critics
. Point taken. But there’s an asymmetry between these positions that she overlooks: his critics might have seen enough at this point in to think that the damage to our country by both Trump and the #reaction make approval all-but-impossible. But surely he could do something
over the next twelve months that might make a reasonable person cease to support him, even a pro-life person who is very happy with two Supreme Court justices?
