The comment thread on Asylum got way off track, so let's talk about the midterm election results.
Franco Aragosta posted this from Henry Olsen at American Greatness,
"Arizona’s Senate race was perhaps the most surprising, and disturbing, midterm result for Republicans and Trump fans. Many struggle to understand how Barry Goldwater’s home state will send a former pink tutu-wearing antiwar activist to Washington. …"It's not that hard to understand. Barry Goldwater's senate career ended three decades ago. A few decades before that, Ronald Reagan was governor of a Republican California. This is a new millennium. Filled with millennials.
The GOP got plastered on November 6th. The House loss was deep and wide, and the Senate result was pathetic given the lopsided amount of seats the Democrats had to defend.
What does this mean?
People aren't as disgusted with the screaming leftwing mobs as conservatives hoped they were.
90% Negative press coverage takes its toll
The GOP has no message. Ask yourself: When the Democrat Congress wants Medicare for All, Free College, and other big ticket item goodies, how can Republicans argue for fiscal discipline and smaller government when they abandoned those cheap props decades ago?
Colorado is down the blue toilet, and Arizona is right behind it. Also, write off Florida. They just enfranchised 1.7 million ex-cons, and we all know who they will vote for.
What is your take on the midterm election results?
Please try to keep it clean, and if your comment disappears, it probably means you used potty language or you were way off topic.
