"Another possibility entirely is that Republican Party is shedding more ideologically radical voters from its ranks, rather than moderate ones (as most people are assuming). We might assume this if we look at polls of Republicans' approval of their leaders. Over the last month, approval of the politicians who have challenged Donald Trump (either via speaking out against his actions or voting to impeach him) has fallen, while the former president's image has remained stable.

Wouldnt it be the opposite? If leaders who challenged Trump have their approval falling that would mean ideologically radial voters are not leaving.
