Poll: “53% of Republicans think Trump is a better president than was Lincoln.”
Do so many Trump supporters really believe this? I suspect that most of them are ignorant of American history, that few of them tried to reach a considered opinion, and that most of them simply wanted to give a provocative and contentious answer. They are dug in. They have nothing constructive to offer. Clinging to Trump, they say “No” to constitutional democracy, honesty, and decency. Trumpism is a form of nihilism.
