Conversely, the people who will condemn him for this weren’t going to vote for him anyway.I can understand that.
I'm not so sure it will "help him with some" though because the only people who would approve of what Lindsey Graham has become as of late would have voted for him anyways so, no help is even needed there.
But, the thing is, those who would respect him for standing their ground for them and their conservative ideas, are on the wrong side of history at this point in time. Meaning, most of America is against what most of what modern day "conservatism" stands for. Due to that societal change, and the associated growth in numbers that has put the majority at odds with the modern day conservatives, it is just a matter of time, even in the most remote areas of America, until this new version of conservatism just fizzles out.
The writing is on the wall from sea to shining sea. The regions of our nation, republican strong used to easily winning elections, the percentage gap is slipping. I'm not sure if we are quite there yet in Kentucky. But it's going to be close. Just 5 years ago, it probably wouldn't have been close at all. The flip-flop republicans who have hitched their wagons to the Trump train, I suspect, will sink right alongside of the USS Trumptanic in due time. Trump has a long history of drowning people in his destructive wake. Perhaps, this time, it might be viewed as poetic justice.
