DON SURBER IS NOT WELCOMING THE NEVERTRUMPERS BACK INTO THE FOLD: “This is not Romney’s party or McCain’s or Bush’s. We push back now. And if those who conspired with Democrats against The Donald think they are re-taking the party, they have another thing coming to them.”

But read the whole thing. Including this bit from Chris Caldwell: “Trump didn’t sell out his supporters. In fact, his presidency saw something extraordinary, even if it was all but invisible from the country’s globalized cities: the first egalitarian boom since well back into the twentieth century. In 2019, the last non-Covid year, he presided over an average 3.7% unemployment rate and 4.7% wage growth among the lowest quartile of earners. All income brackets increased their take. That had happened in the last three Obama years, too. The difference is that in the Obama part of the boom the income of the top decile rose by 20 percent, with tiny gains for other groups. In the Trump economy, the distribution was different. Net worth of the top 10% rose only marginally, while that of all other groups vaulted ahead. In 2019, the share of overall earnings going to the bottom 90% of earners rose for the first time in a decade.”
