What the hell is going on with New Jersey

Seems like it has been the same count total for an hour

A thing that made me think that Mccauliffe was in bad shape

Even before the polling last week….one thing that made me think that he was in bad shape was he was constantly trying to egg Trump on to get involved….that reeked of desperation to me…a particular instance is when the DNC flew a plane near Mar a Lago with a sign trying to get him to chime in…you don’t do that if you are winning

Polling

Other then the California recall…I noticed a trend in polling where they overstate that democrats performance and understate republicans….case in point, the NJ election….and even the POTUS election last year, other than Georgia it seems like Biden underperformed in the actual vote in multiple states that he won and lost

Virginia House is a tie

I saw a post 20 minutes ago that said that the Republicans gained control.

When Republicans lose or win

When Republicans lose they go further to the right which fires up their base to vote in any and all elections

When they barely win they take that as evidence as having a mandate and go even further to the right

When Democrats win, we take that as we won because of “moderates”, with the help of the MSM and republicans pushing that talking point…so we govern as moderates trying not to offend these so called independents while alienating our base (which was the real reason we won)…so our base decides to stay home and not vote

So when we lose, we take that as proof that we went too far left, again with the help of the MSM and Republicans, so we go more to the center trying to win over “moderates”, while further alienating our base

What sucks about the Democrats losing

Is that the message from the MSM will be that the Americans don’t like Biden and the Democrats liberal policies which will further embolden Sinema and Manchin, and probably scared House Democrats from swing districts to halt legislation, which means nothing will get done….but the real problem is that Democratic voters didn’t turn out because they feel as if things aren’t getting done

When will Democrats learn

It seems like history continues to repeat itself and we still don’t have an answer…. this same type of stuff happened with Clinton and Obama and they still suck at countering Republican lies….:Republicans always tell lies and control the narrative, and Democrats are always too late to respond and just let the lies fester thinking that no reasonable person will believe it….CRT is just the latest example… Always the Republicans M.O…..when Democrats are in charge bring out the racists by drumming up fake culture war issues…while Democratic voters are sleeping and not paying attention….and of course the Republicans get an assist from the media by portraying these racist voters as “concerned” citizens

I am tired of Democrats not voting in elections like this

And they can’t even use the voter suppression law excuse because Virginia Democrats made it easier to vote…now republicans are going to make it harder

I thought early on was supposed to favor McCauliffe

Because early votes were going to be counted first? If so, what the heck!
