A Yiddish Proverb For The Elections

To sum up the elections, this proverb comes to mind

ס'איז נישט אַזוי פון אהבת מרדכי ווי ס'איז 
פון שנאת המן

siz nisht azoy fun ahavas mordechai vi s'iz fun sinas homon

the saying actually means
it's not for the love of Mordechai as much as for the hate of Haman

in Hebrew

לא כל כך מאהבת מרדכי כמו משנאת המן

It's not so much out of love for the Republicans as it is out of hate of the President
