If Trump's 35% fanatic base sticks with him and his ideas for multiple election cycles, that could be a good thing. It means the Republicans don't get to have the White House for decades. Instead they nominate Trump or a similar asshat, who loses the general election because most people see what a disaster Trump was. It could be a long time before Republicans nominate someone reasonably competent. The more they go along with Trump's criminal behavior, the longer they will be out of power.
