Trump-skeptical secular conservative Republicans

Democracy Corps recently conducted a series of focus groups with all the major factions of the Republican base, including a conflicted group of “secular conservative” men in Denver. They are part of the one-in-five Republicans who are ideologically conservative and religiously unaffiliated or non-observant. All of them supported Trump’s tax cuts, deregulation, and conservative Supreme Court picks, and most think the economy is moving in the right direction. A sizable minority embraced President Trump and repeated the Fox narrative about the country. But the majority were turned off by Trump’s protectionist policies, the way he badgers private businesses, his tendency to over-claim, and his inability to act presidential.
