Chait Stains:  (D) ex-presidents are popular, (GOP) ex-presidents are not

I don’t buy this.

Yeah, W is not ‘popular’, but…

HW is reasonably popular, he could campaign for GOP candidates if he was ambulatory.

Reagan is popular, he could campaign for GOP candidates if he was alive.

Thing is Chait’s point is undermined by the small sample size problem.
