    How can we explain such high levels of support for Trump from the Republican electorate when so many party elites have withdrawn their support?

    Perhaps the most perplexing aspect of this continued support for Trump is that a substantial Republican Party pillar in recent years has been morality. Even before the recording became public, Trump was never a strong example of conservative Christian values.

    The strength of party identification explains why Republicans seem likely to stand by their man. Continuing to support Trump is incomprehensible to Democrats and many independents. But Republicans see it’s either stick with Trump or help elect someone from a party they so strongly oppose.

    Some Republican Party elites are choosing morality and decency over party loyalty. It remains to be seen what the electorate will do.
