"There is no getting around how much Trump’s followers now echo his darkest sentiments."

Definitely has it backwards. Or Egan's just more optimistic than I am (not very hard to accomplish).

"And it will be rejected in every precinct of the United States where hope still beats hate, which is a majority, albeit a shrinking one."

Again, over optimistic. No one can believe that the Southern Strategy is confined to the Old South (except maybe many television pundits). We all know its tentacles slime up the Appalachian trail through Tennessee, Kentucky, West Virginia, into Pennsylvania, and slither through Missouri, Kansas, the rest of the plains, up into eastern Oregon and Washington, as recent events make clear. A majority of precincts means nothing if you have enough strategically placed areas, especially in say Pennsylvania or Ohio, where hate beat out hope quite a while ago.

Not sure how much "hope" can do this time, but fear of what this can result in should make everyone who does reject this miasma make sure to at least get out and vote.
