Trump’s positive polls mask signs that support for his candidacy is beginning to crumble in the ranks of his party. Several former Trump White House aides support the charges against him, and some have also testified at the initial investigation. More and more leaders are moving away from the “stop the steal” story. Even DeSantis is now openly acknowledging Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 election. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell may remain the same Sphinx, but he’s known to be eager to steer his party out of Trumpian turbulent waters. The question is whether the Georgia indictment, which suddenly makes the prospect of a president behind bars more real and real, won’t make more Republicans question themselves.
If Trump becomes the Republican nominee, the campaign will focus on just one issue, Donald Trump. As long as Trump remains prominently prominent, America will be Trump’s America. This will deny the party the opportunity to attack current President Joe Biden on a consistent, consistent basis for his policies. Still, the strong Republican candidate would stand a good chance against Biden, if only because he himself is losing support in his own Democratic ranks — especially among younger voters and in the far-left and Green parts of the party.
And the sooner the party leads, the less painful it will be. Because even if Trump does not win the primaries or in November, he can still cause a lot of noise and turmoil. At the local level in some states, he can count on the support of the authorities and parliaments that can play an important role in organizing and conducting the electoral process, which is often more fanatical towards Trump than in 2020. Resistance or worse. He can make the campaign uglier and uglier than the previous one. Until the Republicans break free from Trump’s grip, they will exploit the entire political game—at the expense of debate, content, and politics. Trump takes over the party and America.
