There's no such thing as 'Trump's base'
There is no Trump base. It is Trump bases. "The things that frustrate one piece of Trump's coalition often endear him to or embolden another wing of the coalition. If he hovers around 40 percent over the months, it's not that he's holding his whole base steady — it's because he's losing a few supporters with each move but gaining a few more. There's little he could do to please his whole base but also little he could do to anger his whole base."
