It's not squawking if Trump and Greene are the type of candidates that will define the Republican party.  When you only start with 10% of the minority vote, it's easy to say your making inroads.  You won't win in 10-20 years with 80% voting against you.  Numbers won't work.

We are a nearly split 50/50 electorate between GOP voters, and Democrat voters. Even just increasing the GOP margin of the minority vote from 10% to 15% can swing several battleground states and the whole election. 

The numbers actually do work.

I prefaced the numbers comment with type of candidate.  We are talking minorities, and long term the Trump style won't work.  Heck, it didn't work in 2020 and won't in 2024.  But the party is stuck right now.  Trump will be the candidate again.  Midterms won't be a surprise.  We knew a year ago the House was going Republican and Senate would be close.

Trump got more of the  non white vote, (especially Hispanics) in 2020 than any other recent GOP presidential candidate .   It was still a small overall portion, but the numbers were trending towards the GOP. 

The reason Trump lost was because he lost ground with white women voters.

Also more voters voted in general, which boosts raw numbers in all categories.

Their brand is not resonating with working class voters anymore and this is starting to even play out with minority working class voters.


And what exactly is the Republican "brand" to working class voters? Tax cuts for millionaires, and culture war idiocy?

Going to be interesting for "working class voters" if the GOP goes after Social Security & Medicare - They will have just voted to screw themselves, but that is a GOP strong point

Those who vote because they are "victims" are not going to blame themselves when they are victimized.  It will always be someone else's fault.

Thinking that NV might be the outlier for Dems in this election..........not sure the turnout here in NV, especially Clark County will be enough to fend off the lunatic fringe from winning some NV races 

 

Pretty much what fox said Democrats just aren’t showing up.

I'm hoping Labrador loses . Probably won't happen though 

Labradoodle wins or that is a crazy sign.  The lady voted after work.  She heard a poll worker say 19% turnout around 5pm.  Central Meridian.  After work crowd just beginning.

This is pathetic. Not because the way you voted, but the fact you took a picture of your ballot in a desperate attempt at seeking approval from the same people that just hours ago you called leftist circle jerks. 

Voter Fraud.
