Poll Numbers

Trump is cunning about exploiting the fears and anger of his white conservative base, and inexplicably to me — even though his assault on an independent judiciary grows more dangerous by the day — his poll numbers are going up. Trump is channeling Joe McCarthy and Roy Cohn — something I never thought would happen again. But it is.

In the past, people like Trump and McCarthy and Cohn have finally been undone by their own excesses, but only after creating deep damage to the country. When does Trump become outrageous enough for even his core supporters to be repelled by him? That point has long passed for me.
