“I think Trump is going to be harder to beat than people think….Because he has an extremely energized base. Because every decision he makes is politically calculated to ensure his own survival and success...Republicans [are] by and large complicit. You have a guy who never does the right thing for the country, only does the right thing for his own political success. You have a Republican Party that’s unbelievably complicit. You have a really energized base. Those things are good ingredients for him to get reelected.”
