hes that ventriloquist?
(high pitched whiney voice) there is no widespread fraud!!!!!!!!!
More "no evidence"
Trump said he tapped Giuliani to lead his election lawsuits because 'none of the sane lawyers' could represent him
You guys get hooked more than a lone fish in a catch and release pond the size of a hot tub
They are all going to die early from the Trump trauma. Stress kills.
@Winston1 Serious question, to date, what would you say the mid terms look like?
Shane I think it’s going to be really fluid. The Republicans should have the inside track due to reaction to 2 years of control by the Democrats, Biden’s incompetence, the important and large advantages in control of redistricting of congressional seats, the loud left wing component of the democrat congressional l and a few other things. One other challenge is the age and declining capability of the Democrats in Congress.
In addition to defects in the Democrats position there are strengths in the Republicans. Most important is the increase in percentage of Latino and black vote last election. It seems they are ready to leave the plantation after years of false promises by the Democrats. This coupled with the advantages I noted in redistricting should have Republicans well placed to win control of the house and senate. Unfortunately there are some internal conflicts that could really hurt. The Republicans are hurting their chances greatly in swing districts or other places places where loyalty to Trump is more important than either ideological consistency or electoral victories. People like Liz Chaney, Adam Kissinger and Anthony Gonzales are true conservatives who vote 95-99% with the most conservative positions. Their one defect is they oppose Trump. That’s cutting off your nose to spite your face.
Another issue with the Republicans is that by clinging so closely to Trump they alienate moderates who might vote Republican. Remember the solidly Trump supporters only make 30-35% of the electorate. You can’t win a majority without adding to the pool. Trump’s actions are pushing people out. I believe he cost himself the election by his own actions and certainly cost the Republicans the senate in the Georgia runoff.
With all that said it will probably be an outside influence, an event, economic issue or foreign affair that will have the critical influence. Without Covid Trump would have won last November on a booming economy and the reaction to the summer riots. I don’t know what that will be but between now and November 2022 something will. How everyone responds will determine the outcome.
