Just how much trouble are Republicans in?

Even expected crowd-pleasers such as recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel get Trump nowhere. (“Just 23% say it is a good idea compared to 39% who say it is a bad idea, with 38% registering no opinion. A majority (51%) think the move will destabilize the Middle East region. Just 10% say relocating the embassy to Jerusalem will make the region more stable and 28% say it will have no effect on the region’s stability.”)

.. There is a price to be paid for treating women and nonwhites with contempt. Republicans have already had a taste of what mobilized women and nonwhite voters can deliver — Democratic victories in Virginia and Alabama. If and when more allegations of sexual assault or harassment come to light (including the names of lawmakers who used taxpayer money to settle claims) the spotlight will once again put the party of Trump on defense.
