"There's Nothing in the Middle of the Road but Yellow Lines and Dead Armadillos." So says Jim Hightower.
Trump is a liar, a fool, a traitor and the worst president of my lifetime. But he's not in the middle of the road. The fact that he openly takes a position may be what draws so many plain folks to his flock. They believe they understand him. Whether racists, misogynists, anti gay, religious zealots or simply unsophisticated and naturally intolerant, his supporters see what they're looking for. That assuages the angst associated with non-comprehension of complex issues.
Trump is easy for his base to understand. He requires no tedious research or anything resembling hard work to support. And now he's lost the election to Biden but hides from the reality. Prominent Republicans support his denial. Are they afraid of losing his base? ... Especially w.r.t. the upcoming senate runoffs in GA?
He looks like a very sore loser embarking on a scorched earth policy: For instance transition funds are being held up by Trump appointee - according to The Guardian and others.

His instability is evident in his delusional claims of political victory. They're adopting a bunker mentality, in my opinion. Will he commit suicide like Hitler allegedly did?
If he continues scorching America's democratic earth, only the Republican Party is likely to get badly burned. They're all good Germans to the bitter end.
