ha yes, "Trumpism has a high floor" is a much more normal and clear way to rephrase my weird human pyramid metaphor

@NateSilver538  the way I think of it is Trump(ism) is the bottom layer of the GOP's human pyramid. they can reach "higher " w/ voters in certain areas by stacking other layers on top--a Collins here, a Romney there--but right now the whole thing pretty much falls to earth w/o the Trump layer

You know what defeats the hatefulness of Trumpism? The largest electoral margin defeat since Goldwater. That is what he deserves. A humiliating, historic landslide loss. And that is actually possible.But it takes a bigger coalition than your twitter bubble. Build the army.
