    Doubt that it has much to do with Trump.

    Not sure. He may have been in a tough re-election fight to begin with. It's not Trump-friendly country in California.

    There are two sides of the republican party right now, and Trump's side is most popular. I know people who don't like Trump think he's weak and has no real popularity, except for the KKK, but there's a reason why Steve Bannon came out and said he regretted his comments and stepped down from Breitbart. There is still a large portion of the party who leans more libertarian who is against the establishment republicans like McCain and others who have held up the agenda. These guys are leaving in favor of better republican candidates.

    You're probably correct about the last two in CA. However, it doesn't appear to be that way for most of them.

    Somehow I doubt Donald Trump's approval/disapproval rating has anything to do with politicians dropping out like flies. I mean seriously, if that were the case, no politician would stick around, considering how the general public views politics and politicians in general. The only fuel I see, is the steams coming from most of the popular news media outlets.

    Nah, I suspect some people just have no interest in watching the swamp finally consume the rest of the Republican Party. Maybe they want to be ready to come back once it's finally consumed in the giant dumpster fire they have raging? [​IMG]

    My post was serious. Using the funny rating to object to it is a form of goading.
