But it won't hurt Trump too badly, imo. Remember, he is anti establishment. Are the folks you listed part of that establishment? Lifelong, career beaurucrats?

This is the President of the United States and his entire political party. At some point they are the establishment.

if a person has any integrity, they won't be voting for Trump.

Trump is the President of the United States and has been with the full support of the Republican Party for four years. I think it's safe to call him the establishment.

I think the bigger question is how a famous life long con man can con so many (seemingly) adult Americans.

No. It makes them NeverTrumpers.

I think we could be having trouble with the “Never” portion of the term. If people were giving him a chance in 2017-2019, I don’t think the Never label works.

Flake and Romney and the others have never been pro-Trump.

Trump is the establishment, he has told you that over and over. Remember he told you only he could fix it since he is a part of it? As far as your career bureaucrats comment, contrary to popular belief from many on the right, they are not the deep state, these are the folks with expertise our government depends on to run.

Your comment only reinforces my belief that republicans today are on the verge of wanting anarchy. Bitching about the elite does absolutely nothing and will change nothing. Life would be so much easier on your little minds if you accepted your leadership feeds you dreams you'll never see. You'll vote for people who right to work states instead of people who support union workers. But hell no, I'll vote for the guy who can fire me at any time for any reason and the whole time I'm working for him, not give me health insurance, who needs it, right?

Correct, but the others may have been.

Swamp Rhinos.

Nobody who calls them self a Republican can actually be that in reality and hope that Biden wins with his medicare for all, green new deal, wealth redistribution, defend the police, free college, and all of the far left agenda--- not to mention the judges Biden would appoint. All these malcontent "republicans" are demonstrating (and I won't use a capital R for them), is that they never actually believed in the conservative ideals they claimed to believe in. Most are elitists who had either bruised egos, or other agendas anyway.

These fake "republicans" get their way then Biden wins and appoints supreme court judges who will further destroy this country. These are not Republicans.

Flake is a flake. He's got sour grapes just because no one would vote for him. He thinks he's so much better than Trump but wouldn't even challenge Trump in the primaries.

Maybe he knows that there is no chance to win a primary over an incumbent president.
