    assuming that its texture as a "goo" isnt correct.
    since you said plasma is when the electrons float away, (and the nuclei *DOES* stay together),
    that should mean that the substance should have EVEN LESS resistance.
    solid is the hardest
    liquid is softer
    gas has barely any resistance
    and so theoretically plasma should have even less resistance and be almost untouchable
