6. Not as totally impossible as it might seem

The far right took over the GOP party apparatus propelled by raw emotions. To take over the internal workings of a political party people have to show up in person and vote at party meetings and caucuses. They have to get elected as members of local central committees. The far right has been riding an intense Trump sugar high, intense enough to get ordinarily apathetic folks out of their homes at night and into Roberts Rules of Order run meetings for hours at a time. Some of that energy will start to drain away from them now. Their views may not change much if at all, but their motivation to get up from their TV sets at night will be harder to sustain with Donald Trump no longer dominating the national dialogue.
