Just to be clear: I don’t expect Trump supporters to now shift their allegiance to Hilary. I don’t expect them to wish Hilary had won or to wish they would have voted for her.
What I do expect is for some Trump fan somewhere to say:
“I thought I was voting for an outsider, a businessman who was going to shake things up. I thought we were going to get an “executive” in the executive branch and a savvy negotiator as our chief diplomat. Instead we got all the drama of a celebrity President–sex scandals, lots of palace intrigue, barely literate 4:00 AM tweets, multiple provable lies on the daily, and so much golf! Trump has taken away gun rights, and deficits are skyrocketing. Trump is not a conservative, and the drama that he brings to the White House can’t be helping the Republican brand. This isn’t what I expected. I’m beginning to think that we would have been better if we had nominated Ted Cruz.”
But I never hear that. In fact, the crazier things get, the more enthusiastic Trump supporters seem to be about their candidate. It truly is as if he could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and not lose any support.
