Let's congratulate the GOP. They won on broad messages of racism, lies, and anti-educational agendas in an off election year. It will probably create more firestorms going into 2022 and 2024.
My problem with blaming the message/"misinformation"/etc. is that how many of those people won't vote for GOP to begin with? They are a loud echo chamber...
Biden was +10 in Virginia and +16 in NJ this past election. If this isn't a wake up call for Democrats then I don't know what is.
NJ elected Chris Christie before...just saying...
2.) I don't get where or why Dems in Congress and elsewhere think they have some kind of "mandate" or ability to go crazy and push whatever they want. They have a slim near non-existent majority and CAN focus on supporting things they prefer but that is it. Passing things is limited to the middle and real compromise.
3.) The Dems acting like they have been, like "now is time to ram through anything and everything" has caused many moderate voters to withhold support.
100% agree. The Dems especially the progressive needs to stop thinking they are the "end all"...the progressive in particular is what? 20-30% of the overall Dem voting base?
Didn't the Dem learn from 2020 that they need to stop taking votes for granted? They even lost some House seats b/c they totally ignored the Hispanic voters.
