Why aren't Trump's evangelical supporters getting more for their support?
In a Feb. 7 op-ed for The Bulwark, I argue that Trumpvangelicals aren't getting much in return for supporting Trump because they're horrible at politics.
Why can’t Trumpvangelicals, with all their apparent influence on Trump, get more traction on their issues? They clearly don’t understand how to use the influence they have. They’re satisfied with candy (stump speeches and mean tweets about their perceived enemies) rather than a substantive meal (legislative reforms).
Trump can’t get reelected without Trumpvangelicals. This means Trumpvangelicals could have a tremendous amount of influence right now, if they knew how to use it.
