Most people have no clue about god, even religious people. So the above bible verses will make no sense to the majority of people. Kind of hard to allow god to be the one who rules when they have no idea what such is, much less how to follow it. But that is the state of the day I suppose.
It's been talked about for a long long time as well. A sorcerer is basically just a politician.

Are we talking about a sorcerer in the biblical sense?
Remember when the high-priest changed the staff to a serpent, that was sorcery, when Moses does it, its considered a miracle!
I am not really sure how you put sorcerers in the same ball park as politicians; an intriguing hypothesis.
The story is allegorical.

Badmedia you are correct in the Old Testament, but in the New Testament, things have reversed and God sent his Son to be a divine King to his people. But they crucified him....
I think there are actually humans here with no divine backgrounds worthy of ruling humanity. I have researched this phenomenon and such qualified persons unfortunately will suffer the same fate. They will be hated by the masses and killed just like Jesus. Ideas that do work has to be the things most people hate.
In the end, it's not just the ruler/King's fault, it's also the subject's fault, we get what we deserve for not being courageous enough to value and respect individuality.
