    Default Takeaways from Gov Newsome's blowout victory

    False claims of vote fraud and Kraken conspiracy theories are depressing the GOP vote by making their base feel voting by mail cannot be trusted and that voting itself may be futile.

    Running Trumpian candidates is like handing a gift horse to Democrats. Outside of the Deep South and parts of the rural west, the vestige of Donald Trump is toxic.

    As the rightwing elite continue to encourage their rube base to committ COVID-assisted suicide, it may start to make a statistical difference in the strength of GOP voter turnout

    It seems everything Trumpublicans do hurts their base! Republicans screwed up when they didn’t listen to those who urged them to take a new direction.

    There must be a financial incentive to lying to their own voters

    The other takeaway is that, outside of the Trumpyist of states, voters want vaccine mandates and want the unvaccinated punished.

    GOP had pipe dreams that vaccine mandates would really hurt Newsome.

    They actually helped him.

    I dont make those predictions. One would assume the Party of Stumblebum Biden and the bleed the rich
    till there aint no more would not get to hold all that power.

    But they hold the press in their hand ( or lapdogs on their laps) -and our electorate is full of crazed socialists

    No one has to fuck up your Florida. The people there are doing a bang up job on their own to fuck it up as much as possible.

    The only decent things the Republicans of Florida are doing is...

    ...to rid the state of Republicans as quickly as possible. Covid is a bitch.

    That is the most lucid explanation I have heard to explain it.

    The recall turned on Newsom’s approach to the pandemic, including mask and vaccine mandates, and Democrats cheered the outcome as evidence voters approve of their approach. The race also was a test of whether opposition to former President Donald Trump and his right-wing politics remains a motivating force for Democrats and independents, as the party looks ahead to midterm elections next year.
