Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) became the first Republican Senator to admit that she is struggling with supporting Trump for reelection.

Sen. Murkowski’s comments were very honest. She has been breaking with Trump and condemning his words and conduct on multiple issues. She is one of the few Republicans in the Senate who has refused to toe the line. Unlike most of her colleagues in the Senate Majority, Murkowski has shown that she is not afraid of Trump.

Murkowski’s statement comes on the heels of Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) ripping Trump for using force to break up a peaceful protest.

Trump is weak and losing his grip on members of his own party. The criticism is starting to get louder.

Trump doesn’t have to lose a lot of Republican support to lose the election. A one-point Republican swing away from Trump and to Biden in critical swing states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin would be enough to cost him the election.

The base that is Trump’s only firm political ground is showing signs of cracking.
