Since when did the left start caring what republican representatives think? Oh, when Trump became the nominee? Now their opinion matters? These
are the same boogeyman you didn't listen to before. Now that they are against Trump, as they fear for their bank accounts, you find republicans
You're trying too hard.
It doesn't matter what I think about the opinions of GOP politicians. There are those who do though. Let's not forget that a majority of GOP voters
have an unfavorable opinion of Donald Trump to begin with. While you or I might not be swayed in the least, the opinions of these people might mean
somethign to some of them.
Their individual and combined
lack of support and outright criticism might also mean something to some of those conservative editors,
journalists, columnists, bloogers, TV pundits, radio show hosts and sketchy characters at think tanks — and let's not forget the big money GOP
It works on different levels. Their invidual opinions might not carry that much sway (or they may) but in my opinion, the force of the whole is likely
to be more than the sum of the parts. What does it mean if the popular perception becomes that there's a consensus among GOP politicians at every
level that Trump is a foreign body that needs to be encapsulated in a cyst and expelled from the body of the GOP?
I've seen the word "coup" used more than a few times today which is ironic considering that a good deal of the GOP sees Donald Trump as being an
outsider who doesn't share their collective ideology and one who is leading a coup of his own.
I'm just making observations here.
