Could it be that American voters find themselves in another “do loop”? (That’s an old computer term that older Republican constituents understand.)
CONDITION: Bad choices
AFTERTHOUGHT: Vote anyway
There is a story today in the Washington Post by Sean Sullivan that laments how badly Republicans have hurt themselves in the battle for the House. “How badly” really depends upon how much elasticity remains in the home Districts that have been gerrymandered to be bomb proof.
Perhaps, some of the unshakable have been shaken to the extent of feeling the pain, or being threatened sufficiently to understand that the crop of incumbents are bad news for everyone. Why, you may ask? It is because they have demonstrated bad judgment that would risk economic security of the nation for their personal ideological boondoggles believing that ignorant people would remain allegiant even while their actions destroy everything in the neighborhood.
In the political hocuspocus, strategists are worried that Republican allegiance is going soft in some districts, making them vulnerable to Democrat challengers. However, Democrats must play defense themselves while attempting to launch attacks against vulnerable Republicans. So what else is new?
Well, if voters don’t like Congress (90% don’t) that means they are anti-incumbent (there are more Republicans than not) so the chop will fall on them. You can read all the numbers at the Washington Post.
