Conservatives are authoritarians, so it doesn’t matter who’s the candidate, what they say or what they do. What matters is that they’re the authoritarian candidate, so the authoritarian crowd rallies behind them.
For the authoritarian crowd It also doesn’t matter what the candidate promise or do in office, because once they’re in office, they’re officially the authority, so whatever they say or do, is good/true. Because they’re the authority.
Authoritarians don’t vote their candidate into office.
They vote their god into office.
And if it happens that the person in office acts ungodly, it’s a sign/test/curse/tool of their god.
That’s the unity.
Tax cuts, boarder wall, “winning”… It’s all rationalizing why they want a god proxy to proclaim this and that is such and such. So they’ll be secure in knowing there’s an authority, because they believe that decisions by committee don’t have authority. And if that sounds like science denial (peer review, consensus…), that’s because it’s exactly the same thing.
