Sure, it matters that President Trump has a historically low
favorability rating. Then again, disliking the president isn’t exactly a
courageous act. Plenty of Americans, many who supported the president
during the general election, don’t like him. They do realize that
politics is a trade-off.
Here’s a more revealing question pollsters might ask: Do you “like”
any better Sens. Chuck Schumer or Elizabeth Warren, pussy-hatted
marchers griping about the patriarchy or the totalitarians blocking
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos from walking into a public school?
That’s the choice #TheResistance has created for many moderate
Republicans, right-leaning independents and movement conservatives
concerned about Trump. That is to say, they offer no choice whatsoever.
They offer plenty of hysteria, hypocrisy and conflation of conservatism
with Trumpism for political gain.
