That agreement between groups currently classified as political opponents is exactly why I’m calling this a realignment.

The NeverTrumpers will never vote Democrat, Nick. They’ll abstain. That’s a bridge too far. Even Clinton was a bridge too far for most. Trump will go away, and they’ll head right back to pick up the pieces.

A realignment occurs when people actually shift their allegiances. Not happening here. Blurred lines for a few years, then back to the status quo.
