Senate Republicans recently blocked the heavily Democrat-backed commission for the Jan.6 Capitol riots and for good reason. It is evident that this is nothing more than a feather in the Democrats’ political scheme to improve and increase their electoral chances in 2022 after a poor performance in the 2020 election. After underperforming their own expectations regarding the seats in the House and Senate, Democrats have once again refocused their attention on President Trump. A 52-page DCCC autopsy report highlights the Democratic Party’s failures in 2020 and describes the reasons Democrats lost so many seats. Much of the loss, according to the report, is in part due to overconfidence in the polls and underestimating the ability of Republicans to vote, especially those often referred to as “Trump voters,” because of their affinity. and their loyalty to the former president. These are voters who have recently entered politics because of their affinity for the former president.
Trump’s ability to energize Republican voters is unprecedented and Republican officials would do well to understand this and know that they will need those voters to win more seats in the House and preserve their status in the Senate. There are 14 Democrats vying for re-election in 2022 and 20 Republicans for the Senate. In order to maintain their current positions, Republicans must be smart enough to outsmart the increasingly strategic Democrats, especially if they want to win more House seats and potentially take back the US Senate. If Republicans can take back the Senate and increase their position in the House, they will be able to really prevent the far left Democratic Party, which appears to represent a growing percentage of the party, from imposing its socialist agenda on the American people. . Despite what the Left Margin and MSN would have you believe, most Americans actually don’t want more taxes or dangerous neighborhoods, but that’s exactly what the Democrats are proposing.
This is normal in politics, especially when the political actors involved do not have good intentions. They strategically and often successfully use various problems as a catalyst to attack their opponents in order to instigate an emotional surge of voters to their own advantage. If Democrats were truly concerned about the state and condition of this country, they would go across the aisle and work with Republicans in a bipartisan fashion. After all, politics is about compromise, and neither side has the right to do everything as it pleases; it’s just not how the Founding Fathers created this country, but for the Democrats, if you don’t agree with them or see it from their point of view, you will deceive, and it plays more in partisanship and tribalism than anything else.
According to their autopsy report, Democrats did not esteem Trump’s ardent voters, and they did not plan for this even if Trump did not win the presidential election; Republican voters who voted against Trump and for Biden have traditionally voted more for Republicans than Democrats, which in their defense is unusual. However, even for voters who disliked Trump; their contempt for him was not reflected in the ballot as they were clearly cautious against giving too much power and control to Democrats, especially since they advocated extreme policies such as fundraising. police and tax increases.
The Democrats have come up with a set of policies that, frankly, do not fit the majority of the American people, Republican or Democrat. Despite this evidence, Democrats continue to move to the left; which presents a better opportunity for Republicans to challenge Democrats and increase their standing with suburban voters, women concerned about the safety of their families, and business-conscious voters who fear higher taxes may be a problem. burden on their businesses.
Joe Biden ran on the idea that he would unite the country by bringing together Democrats and Republicans, he assured the American people that he and his Democratic Party, if he gave them power, would overcome partisan bickering and tribalism, but it is the exact opposite of what we have seen Democrats so far. Instead, Democrats have continued to focus on former President Donald Trump because that seems like the only way for them to believe they can stay in power, constantly reminding voters how bad they are. dislike Trump because they know that sticking to their agenda is not enough.
History is on the Republicans’ side, as the minority party generally sees gains when the party of the opposite party controls the White House. Republicans must stay focused on attacking Democrats’ fringe policies and pushing forward their plans to move the country forward. If Republicans aren’t seeing any gains, it’s because they became distracted and weren’t focused.
