David Frum delivered a stark prediction for the GOP.
Focusing on Trump’s “personal grievances” and “boutique culture war-issues” alongside increasingly extreme positions on abortion, voting rights and social security means the party is well on its way “to earning a deep, nasty defeat” against President Joe Biden, he wrote.
“Biden’s poll numbers are only so-so. But a presidential election offers a stark and binary choice: This or that?” Frum wrote.
“Biden may fall short of some voters’ imagined ideal of a president, but in 2024, voters won’t be comparing the Democrat with that ideal. They will be comparing him with the Republican alternative,” he added.
