16. :) Not soon. W's crashed at the very end of his second term when

his most hard-core supporters finally realized they'd backed a loser. And that happened not when they became enlightened about all the wrong he'd done but when they ran out of time for him to turn into the strong man they thought they'd elected.

In the months before that, support among other conservatives diminished into the low 30s, and eventually the upper 20s. It was only at the very end, though, that overall support dropped temporarily into the lower teens.

That Russian analyst, whatshername, who writes about what it's like to live in an authoritarian system said the way to break authoritarian support is to show followers that the strong man they chose as their leader is a dud.

That might happen faster with Trump, but from what I'm reading not any time soon and not before impeachment or some terrible disaster. The various "attacks" of truth just prove again and again that electing this great and good leader has generated unprecedented opposition from evil, undemocratic forces.
