Things like Swastikas and slavery flags. They need leaders like Trump who put party over country and personal greed above all else.

They need armed insurrectionists storming statehouses and plotting to kidnap and Kill governors of the treason party.

They need to deny the results of elections and attack democracy.

That's what gets voters attention and gets them to the polls.

Demonstrating against police brutality loses votes and turns off the voters. Siding with blacks or queers is stupid and costs you votes. Democrats need to become more racist, more homophobic and much much greedier. They need to stop getting educated. They need to stop complaining about expensive healthcare, suck it up and die like men when they get sick. And living wages? You gotta be kidding! No one wants to make enough money to pay the bills!

Yeah, Democrats have totally got it wrong.
To win elections you need the right phraseology. Ask the average American Joe who doesn't follow politics daily, just roots for his favorite sports team, watches his favorite tv show, works to take care of his family what "Defund the Police," means. I can tell you he won't mention reform. That not what the slogan says, the slogan says take all the money away from the police.

The demonstrations didn't cause the down ballot losses, but the riots did. Most independents were too busy with other things to care about a demonstration. But once they turned into riots, all over the TV, now they didn't want that to happen where they live.

The working class who went for Trump in 2016, for Biden in 2020 but congressional Republicans in 2020 want those who they elect to think about them and to protect their jobs, not which bathroom a transgender can use.

Something is wrong, Trump received 12% of the black vote this year, up from 8% in 2016. He received 32% of the Hispanic vote, up from 28% in 2016. His share of the white vote dropped, from 59% down to 58%.

The gay, lisbian, bisexual, transexual vote, Trump in 2016 received 14%, in 2020 27%. That's a 13 point jump in Trump's favor.



So how do you explain the above. One last comment, the working class backed Biden big time, but not Democratic congressional candidates, there really seems to be a huge disconnect there also.

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.
