As with immigration (), Trump has driven support for free trade to new highs . The idea that he has some magical power over public opinion on these issues is just wrong.

Agree - see e.g. my column on how people often misunderstand taking over after a thermostatic backlash for magical powers of persuasion

Parsing out how much of the change in white racial attitudes is a secular shift and how much is an anti-Trump backlash seems like an important question

Well, he clearly educates people with the consequences of his ignorance coupled with arrogance! My motto: choose whatever he is NOT having.

Let’s say someone younger, smarter, saner primaries Trump. And catches fire. Given his delusional narcissism, does anyone really believe Trump could accept reality—and resist the pathological need to obliterate that opponent in the most scorched earth manner from his WH perch?
