at least some of those currently bamboozled might change their minds

Mr Trump finally exposed the Republican base, for what many folks have known, as a largely a group of people malignantly infected by bigotry. It's in the open now. Why would these folks forget about Mr Trump? They wouldn't. He is their voice ... and they see him as the savior of everything they think is sacred ... including their bigotry.

For this reason, Trumpism will remain a force for which all Republican will have to contend and fear. Should any of them say anything contrary to the tenets of Trumpism, they will incur the wrath of THE BASE.

Hopefully time and education will be the cure.
