The idea Republicans love Trump like they’ve never loved anyone before isn’t just North Korean-level personality cult propaganda, it has absolutely no basis in fact or data.
First, his numbers among Republicans right now are statistically identical to George W. Bush’s the last time the GOP were going into a mid-term election. Republicans would lose 31 House seats that year.
Approval ratings among Republicans:
Trump (Fox News, Oct. 25, 2017)
Bush (Fox News, Oct. 25, 2005)
The four percent difference in approval, two percent difference in disapproval and two percent difference in net favorable/unfavorable are margin-of-error ties.
Trump supporters also claim that only he could have defeated the unstoppable political force that was Hillary Clinton, who would have crushed any other Republican with her one-two punch of the worst poll numbers ever recorded in history for any Democrat nominee, and a campaign run by a computer algorithm that told them to ignore four massive swing states to campaign in Arizona.
They say Trump did what Romney and McCain couldn’t because Republican voters loved him like they’ve never loved anyone before.
That is also something right out of a Korean Central News Agency broadcast.
