Republican Voter Loyalty to Trump.
Among Republicans, Trump’s approval rating has held remarkably steady. The week Mueller was named, according to Gallup, Trump’s GOP support stood at 84 percent. In the days after Donald Trump Jr. was revealed to have written, “I love it” in response to a Russian offer of dirt on Hillary Clinton, it reached 87 percent. In Gallup’s last poll, taken in late November, it was 81 percent. Trump’s approval rating among Republicans has not dipped below 79 percent since he took office. None of the revelations from Mueller’s investigation—nor any of the other outrageous things Trump has done—has significantly undermined his support among the GOP rank and file.
The GOP senators who have challenged Trump, by contrast, have seen their support among Republican voters crash.

We love Trump in the UK, no matter how shitty our politics get we can look over the Atlantic and reflect on how bad it could be.

May is worse, totally ineffectual and selling us all out to the EU over Brexit.
Also, given the need for trade deals with the US because of Brexit, now is not the time to play at virtue signalling over Trump's retweets.

While I will begrudingly admit to the fact that Republicans are people, no, Trump is historically unpopular.
Never forget that Hillary got more votes.

We are the weaker partner in the negotiations, no amount of wishful thinking will ever change that.
Of course this was dismissed as project fear when we raised it before the referendum.
