“When you talk to Republican primary voters, the number one issue is, ‘Are you with Trump?’?” said retiring Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), a Trump critic. Complicating things further is the devotion of the Republican base to Trump’s take-no-prisoners approach, which can make it dangerous for GOP candidates who seek to create some distance.

That is unwelcome news for Democrats, who just weeks ago believed they had a chance to gain more than the two seats they need to take control of the Senate.

Saturday 21:50 GMT

Then someone would have to patiently explain, “Let me tell you about Donald Trump …”. Opponents accuse Trump of trading in misogyny, racism, mendacity, crassness and chaos, as painfully documented by authors Michael Wolff and Bob Woodward.

Measured by the laws of the Trump universe, his presidency is indeed a success, reinforced daily by praise singers on conservative media and rooms full of applause and “promises made, promises kept” banners.
