The biggest news coming out of Congress recently has been the dilemma faced by GOP members of the House and Senate who are facing reelection this year. Having to run on a ticket led by “The Donald” seems to have lots of them very much concerned. While several have endorsed Trump, some have tried their best to dodge him. Frankly, I believe all of them on the GOP ticket are stuck with Trump.
I doubt seriously that more than a handful of the members of Congress approve of Trump’s candidacy. When you get down to it, The Donald’s campaign has been largely run based on the not-too-stellar performance of Congress. In effect, Trump is running against Congress, and now he wants the GOP members of the House and Senate to join his campaign.
The old saying that “politics makes strange bedfellows” certainly seems to apply to the Trump bandwagon effect. It will be most interesting to see how these “arranged marriages” work out. Things have a way of changing quickly – sometimes overnight – in politics. I have to wonder when the Trump voters will start to look at their candidate’s history. When – or I should say if – they do, The Donald could see a very fast drop in popularity. Stay tuned!
