The other day I posted and tried to draw a distinction between Donald Trump and Trumpism.
Watching Donald Trump collapse in the polls, at least for the moment, isn’t good enough.
A defeat for Donald Trump in November, while being satisfying, will not do the trick.
I’m looking for a major set-back for Trumpism.
I’m talking the movement, not just the man.
White supremacy, anti-immigrant super-patriotism, America First brown-shirt bully-boy politics, the debasement of women and capitalist profits above all else.
These are just some of the characteristics of Trumpism.
While most Repugs and some Democrats share these views, Trump has not been the best salesman of late.
So when I hear Trumpism from any politician, I will rate it on the Trump-o-meter. Maybe post it with our little measurement tool down in the corner.
Just part of looking at the data.
