De gustibus

Michelle Goldberg cites a disquieting statistic:

Whatever Trump does, most Republicans will probably go along with it. In 500 days, Trump has managed to turn much of what remains of his party into an authoritarian cult. Among Republicans, he has an 87 percent approval rating; the only modern Republican president who was more popular with his own party at this point in his term was George W. Bush, and that was mere months after Sept. 11. A recent poll of voters in congressional swing districts found that 71 percent of Republicans “mostly like” Trump’s handling of F.B.I. and criminal justice officials.

Among Republicans he has an exceptionally high approval rating.

That’s appalling. That terrible mean bullying venomous vindictive obscene man is what they like best.
