I do know that there are some decent people who remain Republicans out of some form of “We need to take our party back from the nutcases!” or some such, but at some point, folks, it’s time to just accept defeat and leave:

Just 19 percent of Republicans thought Trump should have taken a stronger position [on the Charlottesville violence], while 59 percent thought his response was strong enough.

Among Democrats, on the other hand, 79 percent of respondents thought Trump’s response wasn’t strong enough, while 10 percent thought it was sufficient.

I mean, 3/5 of the party can literally justify anything with, “But what about the left!” Obviously this includes neo-Nazis, but that may be the least of it. The 19% has already lost. Either move on or become an enabler.

Barro is worth reading on this as well.
