Hilzoy's notion that a road back needs to be created is a tribute to her humanity, but in practice, we could build a 16 lane superhighway back to sanity, and it would not make one whit of difference.
About Trump and evangelical voters. In order to work with people, you have to believe that they are going to be consistent about what they say and do. The above proves that this doesn't obtain with any on the religious right.
Krauthammer has a tedious piece about how evangelical voters are going to Trump because they want to be 'protected', which may or may not be true (but you are not going to lose very often betting against what Krauthammer says), but this is absolutely right
A more scripturally, spiritually flawed man than Trump would be hard to find. As several anti-Trump evangelical voices have argued, Christian witness cannot possibly support a thrice-married man with such an impressive list of the seven deadly sins.
The idea that the principles of the religious right are things that need to be acknowledged is just another one of those pieces of wisdom that has no basis in fact. A pity it took a person like Trump to show that was the case.
