3. Even if you could do so, would Repukes in Congress or their voters care? Everything so far says "no"

The first rule of trying to measure something is "is the result of this measurement EVER going to affect anything?" and if the answer is "never, NOT AT ALL" then save your time and don't do the measurement.

Whether Trump has dementia or not is rather irrelevant. If you are responsible you recognize his behavior is unacceptable. If you are not you do not. That is it.

The reason for his behavior is not information which is potentially going to be used by anybody in the near future for decision-making purposes. Everyone has already staked out which hill they are going to die on... there is no going back now for anyone who has supported Trump this far.
