34. But half the nation is conservative by personality,

from which political leanings spring. Personality is genetically wired.

They simple can't make that promise, and they will always be a big part of "us." Some could vote for decent people take over the Republican Party. Or move to another conservative party if one forms.

That said, like you, I see no indication that well over half of current Republicans will not continue to loyally support their current leaders. They seem far from any limits to what they will accept, and it seems likely that for at least half of those there never will be any.

Those'll still be hissing "Hillareee" and "BO" from their wheelchairs and walkers long after their families learn to never mention politics in front of them.

Which to me makes it important to differentiate. My husband's Jewish. Although I try to be as reasonable and persuasive as I can manage, these days I seem to be mostly just an intolerant (fed-up!) liberal instead. In gross terms, there are two very noticeable types of conservatives around this intensely conservative deep south county: Those who will be friends with us and those who are hostile and won't. Huge difference between the two, even if all probably voted for Trump.
