The Bulwark: Three Futures for the Non-Trump Right

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This is hilarious article.

As we saw this weekend, Trump has a 100% approval rating in the Republican Party outside of the True Cons wing. Social conservatism is the glue that holds the Trump coalition together. It is also the thing that repels the True Cons wing which is moderate/liberal on that issue.

The Bulwark:

“Non-Trumpers’ reasons for rejecting Trump are clear: Ethically, he is immoral and his administration was corrupt. As a leader, he attracted political allies who are sycophantic, untalented, and even delusional, while repelling the high-minded, accomplished, and the sensible …”

Who exactly did Trump repel though?

Did he repel the people whose legacy is a bloated oligarchy and the greatest level of income inequality since the Gilded Age? Did he repel the people who catered to millionaires and billionaires? Did he repel the people whose trade policies gutted the American Heartland? Did he repel the people who blundered us into the Iraq War? Did he repel the people who kept the borders open to illegal immigration for forty years? Did he repel the people who allowed political correctness to spread like a cancer through our universities? Did he repel the people who presided over forty years of cultural degeneration? Did he repel the people who share the same cosmopolitan and modernist values of the progressive Left?

“As a policymaker, he was ambivalent about—and sometimes was openly hostile to—core principles of American conservatism and Republicanism …”

Those were precisely the things that made Trump popular though. The core principles of American conservatism and Republicanism are less popular than Trump. Mitch McConnell is far less popular than Trump.

“And as a party boss, he was the first president since Herbert Hoover to oversee his party’s loss of both houses of Congress and the White House in just four years.  …”

Whose fault is that though?

Republicans lost control of the House because Paul Ryan’s Better Way agenda sucked. It was the True Cons policies on health care and tax cuts that were unpopular and which were an electoral albatross. Similarly, Mitch McConnell lost the Senate because he opposed $2,000 stimulus checks which had the support of 80% of American voters!

“Those failings extend beyond Trump to the party and movement he leads, as well as the ambitious younger politicians—e.g., Josh Hawley, Nikki Haley, Ted Cruz, Mike Pompeo—who aspire to succeed him. Instead of acknowledging Trumpism’s failings and recalibrating party policies and politics to make them more successful, the Trumpian Republican party is in full denial of his and its failures and what they portend for the future. If this continues long-term, the Trump GOP will decline as a major national party. …”


Is there any proof of this? What do Trump voters care about?

What are the priorities of Trump voters?

“Has a free market economy” is 24 out of 55.

“Government has a balanced budget” is 34 out of 55.

“Is the leader of the free world” is 41 out of 55.

“Engages in free trade with foreign countries” is 44 out of 55.

“Is the most admired country in the world” is 50 out of 55.

“Is open to immigration” is 52 out of 55.

“Enforces international laws around the globe” ranks 53 out of 55.
