So, the latest Republican downballot strategy is to distance yourself from the top of the ticket. There are a wide variety of ways of doing so already on display.
However, each time a downballot candidate does the distancing, the reporting further undercuts Trump’s residual support.
That increases the incentive and need for other downballoters to distance from the “loser.”
So others feel they have to do so, and you get a spiral — or rather two intersecting spirals, like DNA.
Not that I would expect most Republican candidates to recognize the image.
I am confident, however, that they vaguely recognize the term “death spiral” from their Obamacare hysteria.
So is this the “Trump Toilet” they are spiraling down together?
