This Politico story makes the case that a Trump presidency could do a lot of good even if he never showed up for work:
Poll: 25 percent of federal employees would quit under Trump presidency
By Nick Gass
About 1-in-4 federal employees would consider leaving their jobs if Donald Trump is elected president, according the results of a recent survey conducted by the Government Business Council.
Overall, about 2-in-3, or 67 percent said they would not think about leaving the federal government if Trump becomes president, but 14 percent said they would and 11 percent said they would “maybe” leave. Just 8 percent said they did not know. The share of Democrats who said they would leave is higher, with 42 percent indicating that they would exit or could exit.
Okay, I’m starting to see an upside here. Trump might shrink the bureaucracy more than Republicans have been able to do for a generation. He can seal the deal if he promises not to replace any federal workers who quit. Especially with any of the mythical “good people” he likes to mention.
