    You mean the Civil War Statue offensive isn't winning over voters?

    The GOP is two parties right now, the Trumpsters and the non-Trumpsters.

    It's just impossible to govern and lead when you're up against two other parties.

    There is little reason to believe the Republicans won't hold Congress

    1. The economy is strong, low unemployment, cheap gas, no wars
    2. The Republicans only need to defend ten seats in the Senate
    3. The Republicans have a strong gerrymandered House

    But then there is the Trump factor
    Trump is capable of bringing down the whole GOP

    The key is crowd control. The democrats have always generated enough crowd to stomp out republicans, even when it mean importing crowds of Mexicans.
