Some day soon Republicans will realize they face an election in two years as the standardbearers and enablers of extremely unpopular President. (I also hope Democrats will realize this. Jury is still out.) Recent polls show President Trump's approval rating in the mid- to high 30s. That's just the first week. He's barely started. But this is almost always the high point. And the President's party almost always faces loses in the first mid-term in any case.
