Yes, Barbara, the way I see it the GOP has been, with Fox News’ help, a festering party of evil for some time, and now with Trump at the lead the boil has popped open for all to see. Unfortunately a lot of folks (42%) don’t care about the fester. With them the tribal impulse trumps all, even to the point of them backing a brand of politics that works against them. Sad!

But I do get your main point.
