Republicans are at a point where they can only win if they cheat. That doesn't bode well for the future of the party unless they embrace reform.

They will never embrace reform.

They have nothing to offer America except more of Donald Trump.

This is interesting.

GOP Rep. Reveals How Many Colleagues Actually Believe Trump’s Election Conspiracies

https://www.yahoo.com/huffpost/adam-kinzinger-trump-election-conspiracy-092610348.html

I don't know whether to believe Rep. Adam Kinzinger or not. I realize most GOP elected officials know they must win the Trump supporters in the Republican Primaries or go down in flames. Is it fear of losing in the primaries which keep these Republicans spouting the election fraud? Do they really believe it? Perhaps it's self preservation.

But that perservation may only last during the primaries. Not the general election.


It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

Question to me is...does the Republican Party think America wants to return to the Trump Years?

Or does America want healthcare and better wages?

As far as I can tell the Republicans are turning into the party that lies and nobody who refuses is gotten rid of. This also means that any Republican candidate can be accused as a liar right off the bat! The only question becomes; How many voters are going to vote for a candidate who belongs to a party that lies and insists on all members doing the same?

Oh, the Republicans are constantly thanking Trump for all he has done for them. I really wish they would listed all these kindly things.

How many people would vote for a Republican, according to the latest generic congressional poll, if the midterm election were held today, 47% would vote Democratic, 42% Republican.

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/other/2022-generic-congressional-vote-7361.html

This however is nationally, not district by district which congressional elections are based on. Which means the poll means nothing, but gives you an idea of where things stand today on a national basis. It also shows that 11% of the electorate is undecided.

If you want to compare 2020 to what the generic congressional poll is showing today, on 2 Nov 2020 it was 48% Democratic, 41% Republican, 11% undecided, which ended up nationally, final results 51% Democratic, 48% Republican. But this was a national poll and not district by district, even though the GOP lost the national vote, they picked up a net gain of 14 seats. Even so, the 51% of the 435 congressional members comes out to, 221.85 which in fact the Democrats have exactly 222 seats.

It usually doesn't work this way, one party or the other usually has far more seats that what the national total would suggest. The Democrats received 53% of the national vote in 2018, which out equate to 230 seats, but they had 237.

I think as long as the focus is on Trump being the head of the GOP, the Democrats are in good shape. But if something happens, Trump fades or goes away, then the focus will be on Biden and the democratic controlled congress. As long as independents are satisfied with them, all is good. But if Biden and the Democratic controlled congress makes independents angry at them, watch out. A repeat of a wave election could very well happen. But as long as the focus is on Trump and not the Democrats as it is today, all will be well. The more media attention that is give one, the worst that someone seems to the general public. Not being in the media spotlight is good. The big exception to this rule was the 2016 presidential election where Trump hogged the limelight.


It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
