The election data is always very interesting. Let's have a thread to discuss it so that it doesn't get washed away in the gameday thread.

We always suspected that a portion of the Trump vote in 2016 will leave him based on overall distaste with his conduct as president. There appears to be some evidence of that emerging . . . here's some from Wisconsin.

I said something similar in a different thread. The Democrats need a slogan that people can cheer to. "Defund the Police" ain't it. A better sell would be "Let cops be cops." In other words, let the cops worry about enforcing the laws. Don't have them getting involved with people suffering from mental health. I can hear people chanting "let cops be cops." It comes across as supporting the police while the plan itself is the same as "Defund the Police."

They have missed an opportunity to really stick it to the Republicans on their efforts to throw out inner-city (African-American votes). Again, a simple chant "Let Blacks Vote" should be shouted out at every Rudy G press conference. There are Republicans that still do not like to look like racists. They can be on board with "count LEGAL votes" but when that turns into "count WHITE votes" then they are out.

Democrats don't set the narrative very well.
Yeah, you can chant "Defund the police", "Let cops be cops", "Support the police" or "Stain grade walnut" whatever it takes to sell it.
Because if you can't sell it, you can't do it.

Trump sold the shirt out of maga. People ate it up. I didn't even like it myself, but a lot of people did. So, if he can do it...why wouldn't Democrats do it?

@DaveXA -

Because as a general rule, Dems are harder to sell. We tend to require evidence and facts. Things the MAGA crowd not only do not require, they actively avoid. It’s easier to feel a certain way than to critically think. And propaganda preys on this.

Look at the election nonsense or the Covid is a hoax arguments. I think you would have a tough time selling that to someone who thinks beyond their own front yard.

When you roll out the people peddling Covid is a hoax and they turn out to believe in demon sperm or your star election fraud witness is on probation for trying to frame her boyfriend’s ex for stealing their homemade porn, people would most likely discredit them out of hand. Not these rubes. No they probably don’t even know that stuff because they don’t research anything further than their FB page.

Also, Dems can't sell worth shirte. The DNC has no idea how to capture the narrative and hold it. Nor what an effective slogan looks like. Just take a look at the blowback on Obama (FFS!) when he said "Defund the police" was a poor choice of words.

After Romney's loss in 2012, the RNC conducted an extensive analysis and produced a 100-page document that charted the Republican party's course forward, quite successfully. Then Trump came.

Now they don't do that kind of thing anymore, because critical analysis could be seen to disparage their Great Leader.

Yes, we've come a long way since my childhood when Republicans were considered the party of intellectuals and critical thinkers.

Now you know that's not true. They also watch Newsmax, OANN, AleKKKs Jones and read Epoch Times. Anything else that conflicts with their mental narrative is "mainstream media" and isn't to be trusted.

Shoot, Republicans don’t even do party platforms anymore. Cant write down your beliefs when you have to read a tweet first to know what they are.

I'm glad this guy reached out to the electors in advance so they'd understand their job

Yeah, I don't like this priest. He basically ran out of NY due to disagreements with the Bishop, and was transferred to Texas. He is overly political. He's a political activist. Things a good priest shouldn't be. At least not to the point of having a picture of the president, instead of the pope, behind him.

A lot of what he said was fine, but it's the context between what he said that isn't.

edit:

I glanced at his twitter feed. UN HINGED. The man shouldn't be leading any congregation, shouldn't be delivering homily's and is failing his duty to the truth.
