I don't get Democratic leaning voters who aren't fired up to vote

I don’t get how Democratic voters and so-called “moderates/independents” can either vote for republicans or not vote at all after seeing what happened after the election last year… These voters expected Biden to become president and solve all the country’s problems right away and now they are ready to turn the country back over to the republicans…..don’t they see that we barely averted a fascist trump takeover….we barely hung on due to a few democrats who held governorships, or who were sec of states or attorney generals….and a few republicans and judges who decided to do the right thing…..but there were so many Republicans in power who were willing to go along with the take over, and now we are giving Republicans even more power, if 2022 goes bad for the Democrats then the 2024 election doesn’t matter because this time around there will be too many Republicans in power who are going to be willing to go along….this isn’t going to be like ‘96 or ‘12 when Clinton and Obama took a beating during the primaries but were still re-elected, the Republicans are going to build an apparatus where they get the presidency whatever it takes

1. because they are rarely fired up

they need something to fire them up.

You and I don't. We care, we pay attention, we vote.

They don't unless something really makes them.

7. We have a MSM screaming "Democrats in disarray"

While the right has several propaganda outlets that stir the crazy on made-up shit.

3. This always happens.

Republicans fuck everything up, people vote for Democrats who do nothing but step on their dicks because of a couple of assholes in the party, people see this and vote Republicans back in. Rinse and repeat.

We don’t have to worry about it much longer though. The next time the GQP takes over will be the last. It’s all over at that point.

None at all.

5. Selection bias.

We're all here because we're passionate about politics. Most people aren't as into it as we are, and that's largely a problem of persuasion on our part.

those that aren't are basically giving up. That is the perfect formula for authoritarian government.

Fear of people with colored hair, transgender, Black Lives Matter, Socialism, Communism, Unions, Police, Guns, Immigration, Sustainable energy, Climate Change, loss of jobs, Robots, Social Media, your neighbors, it is all about FEAR.

Working people, the traditional base of the Democratic Party, are not doing so well and they need someone to blame.......
