Yes, the fever is passing, isn't it? Republicans will start playing well with others any minute now, won't they?
Um, no -- not if this is indicative of the mood among Repubican voters:
If this PPP poll of NC Republicans is any indication, a Clinton presidency in 2017 is going to be splendiferous quantities of awesome from day one.No one in the media will take this poll seriously, just as no one has ever taken seriously the many, many polls showing that Republicans doubt President Obama was born in the United States. These polls weren't taken seriously even after a birther led GOP presidential polls for three months. And no, the North Carolina Republicans who say this aren't just angry Trump and Carson backers -- according to the poll's crosstabs, 71% of that nice Marco Rubio's supporters think Clinton should be impeached immediately, as do 72% of Chris Christie supporters and 95% of Rand Paul supporters.
The trend-piece writers in the political press are itching to declare that the current craziness in the GOP is temporary. It's not. It's endemic, and it's only going to get worse.
