Abstract

This election year, President Trump has faced significant criticism not only for his response to the COVID-19 pandemic, but now also for his reaction to the renewed #BlackLivesMatter protests that began after the death of George Floyd in Minnesota last month. Thomas Gift writes that although Trump now trails his Democratic challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden, in many crucial states, it’s premature to suggest that his core base of Republican supporters have deserted him.
