Even Among Democrats, Resistance to Trump Is Waning
We can all get along. Friday’s bipartisan budget bill averted a lengthy shutdown threat and was part of a growing willingness to engage with President Trump, rather than treat him as a threat to the republic. That could be explained, argues policy researcher Will Stancil, by society’s disdain for the abnormal, along with a desire to accomplish something, like passing an infrastructure bill that’s both touted by the president and dovetailed with Democratic aims. But in doing so, Trump’s pariah status diminishes, and with it, Democrats’ chances of victory in November’s midterm elections.
