Yes. They’d Vote For Him If He Shot Someone on 5th Ave.

“In 2016, Donald Trump joked: ‘I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn’t lose any voters.’ It’s not a joke anymore. Trump has lost almost no support since he was convicted of 34 felonies in his hush-money trial on May 30. The Republican party remains fully committed to him, and he has held his ground in polls. … It’s created a striking contrast between the two parties. While Democrats agonize over Biden’s debate performance — and many call for him to step down as their presumptive nominee — Republicans shrug off Trump’s felonies. But the rot in the GOP goes even deeper. Surveys taken since Trump’s conviction show that to excuse him, many Republicans have adjusted their morals. They’ve decided that when Trump does something bad or criminal, it’s no longer bad or criminal.” (07/09/24)
