It’s shocking to me that the FT believes the opinions of “corporate chiefs” have a purchase on the electoral preferences of American conservatives, whether GOP voters or not (“US business should battle for soul of the Republican party”, FT View, June 11).
Most stopped listening when chief executives, presumably out of cowardice and calculation rather than conviction, folded in the face of activist pressure during the street anarchy of 2020 and thereafter. As for Liz Cheney of Wyoming, who has no constituency among Republicans yet seems to exert talismanic power over the FT’s marquee columnists, she’ll be primaried in August. Then forgotten.
