Contributing sentiments towards policy:

92% : McConnell obviously bites his tongue about the president all the time, but his main project has been working with the White House to confirm judges to the bench who are thoroughly committed to faithfully interpreting our laws and Constitution and will be doing their jobs long after Trump is a distant memory.

85% : Execution of the innocent will impress the masses even more."
84% : Their hoped-for GOP electoral apocalypse doesn't make sense on its own terms, and their advocacy for one bears all the hallmarks of this perfervid time in our politics -- it, too, is rageful and extreme, but satisfyingly emotive.
81% : Only this bloodletting will teach the party the hard lesson it needs to learn and mete out the punishment it deserves for accommodating Trump over the past four years.
80% : There will never be a Donald Trump again, but it's entirely conceivable that a post-Trump party will be more Trumpist, i.e., more populist, than before.
76% : As a Soviet commissar once put it, "We must execute not only the guilty.
75% : They want the least resistance to the most progressive president of our lifetimes to give him the greatest possible running room on abortion, conscience rights, health care, judges, climate, immigration, transgender policy, policing, gun rights, campaign finance, taxes, spending and, surely, things we can't even think of yet.
61% : GOP officeholders have been especially loath to speak of the character defects that blight his presidency.
61% : Regardless, even after a landslide, the Republican Party will be made up of the same voters and officeholders who steadfastly supported Trump.
61% : If the Never Republicans want a party untainted by these people, there is one available, and if they get their wish, it will be at the ­zenith of its power next year.

56% : Back in the Tea Party era, purists insisted on nominating in 2010 the flagrantly unelectable Christine O'Donnell to stick it to the Republican establishment good and hard.
53% : Let's stipulate that Republicans have often excused or looked past the inexcusable during Trump's presidency, and almost every GOP senator has a dimmer view of Trump than he or she will let on publicly.
52% : Their ranks run from the estimable columnist George Will, to Charlie Sykes of the anti-Trump Web site The Bulwark, to the operatives of the Lincoln Project.
49% : Sure enough, she lost to Democrat Chris Coons, who is well on his way to a stress-free 30-year career in the Senate.
43% : Even if you think McConnell should have played it differently, what would defeating him and ­every other Senate Republican ­accomplish?

38% : A cadre of GOP opponents of President Trump is nonetheless calling for a purifying fire to sweep through the Republican Party in the fall, taking down not just Trump
37% : The Never Republicans refuse to account for the practical calculations of practical politicians hoping, in difficult circumstances, to achieve practical results.
35% : This is a high cost to pay, not just for the Republican Party, but for the country -- at least that's what you think if you are a conservative who believes progressives are deeply wrong on all these questions.
34% : Put aside that she is hardly a Trumpist.
33% : All of this deserves to be called out, but should the party of Lincoln be leveled?
31% : And it doesn't matter who the next Republican president is -- one of the moderates that some Never Republicans favor or Don Jr. -- the Democratic senator from Maine will be there to oppose whatever he or she is doing.
29% : It isn't even guaranteed that the posited purifying loss will purify.
7% : What the Never Republicans are hoping for is not just a repudiation of Trump.
