The media typically divides the GOP into two camps, Trump supporters and Never Trumpers. Many Republicans I know fall into neither one. We oppose Never Trumpers on ideological grounds, but we’re also exhausted with Donald Trump, convinced he’s damaging our side’s chances in the midterms and will lose in 2024 if he’s the GOP nominee.
I left the country for nearly a month this summer and came back to find that Democrats were rising in generic polls and President Biden’s approval rating had ticked up. That shouldn’t be possible given the state of dysfunction in which we now live. If the Republicans can’t make big gains in the midterms and recapture the White House in 2024 with the hapless Mr. Biden at the helm, the GOP needs a revolution, starting at the top.
