True but only after Trump had maneuvered himself into a politically intimidating position. They became Trumper's only because they had no political alternative. Would you say that the mob that desecrated the Capital were: Trumper's? Republicans? Both? I think it can be summed up with the answer to the following question: Are Trump supporters loyal and devoted to the Republican party or are they loyal and devoted to Trump? My thoughts: Basically Trump has generated a radical personal support base that the GOP can not ignore and it is in the GOP's political interests to align itself with Trump if he will let them. The GOP has suffered significant losses and is still caught up in Trumps charismatic web. People like Graham believe that for the GOP to survive they must stay sock puppets for Trumps machinations simply because Trump has a huge devoted support base that couldn't care less about political parties. ( or making USA great again BS) Republican party survival requires them to make a pact with the devil, which is what they are really good at doing. Principles and morality be damned!
