Trumpism has no organizing principle beyond resentment politics. That zeitgeist will remain and influence the introduction of more resentment policies, but I do believe the "movement" has passed its zenith. It will, however, remain a dangerous toxin in the body politic (after all, we still have the "freedom caustic" and Marjorie Taylor Nutcase). Moreover, much as I fervently wish its demise, the GOP will remain the GQP for the foreseeable future and geographically significant.

Here, as elsewhere, people are outraged at what feels like a rigged game -- an economy that won't respond, a democracy that won't listen, and a financial sector that holds all the cards. - Robert Reich
