The sudden alarm comes in spite of the more than $50 million that Democrats directed to so-called MAGA Republicans during the primaries, under the dubious assumption that they would be easier to beat.
But the Biden administration’s controversial policies—including student-loan amnesty and extreme demagoguery against supporters former President Donald Trump—appear to have backfired with deteriorating economic conditions becoming the top concern of many.
After a summer bump that Democrats claimed was a momentum shift, Republicans are now steadily closing the gap.
“In 24 states, across the map, Republicans are fielding 2020 presidential election deniers as November standard-bearers for statewide office—governor, secretary of state or attorney general,” Axios complained.
The Associated Press reported that one in three Republicans running for statewide office was skeptical about the results of the 2020 presidential election and “backed Trump’s push to overturn the election.”
FiveThirtyEight ran an article titled “60 Percent Of Americans Will Have An Election Denier On The Ballot This Fall.”
In it, the blog reported that “election denialism has spread across the country.” It said candidates who are election skeptics “will appear on ballots in nearly every state this fall.”
Most egregious may have been the refusal of several battleground states to comply with their own state constitutions and legislatures regarding election procedures, with several Democrat officials claiming the pandemic gave them special powers to alter normal operations in ways that would directly benefit their party.
Moreover, even left-leaning Time magazine acknowledged shortly afterward that a cabal of Democrat operatives, activists and special interests had colluded to suppress important voter information and to funnel illicit dark money into get-out-the-vote efforts under the guise of nonprofit advocacy.
Nonetheless, the mainstream media is so intent on obsessing over the 2020 outcome that FiveThirtyEight “drew on news reports, debate footage, campaign materials and social media and reached out to every single Republican nominee for the House, Senate, governor, secretary of state and attorney general to determine their position on the 2020 election.”
The media is even more distraught because of Trump’s success in primary competitions. David Wasserman at The Cook Political Report reported that Trump went 21-5 with his endorsements.
While Trump is winning, radical leftists are losing. Wasserman also reported that the unholy trio of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.; Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.; and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio–Cortez, D-N.Y., went 15-11 in their primary endorsements.
