    Default Democracy is at stake in the midterms. The media must convey that.

    Iíve written before about my own ideas: to make the threats to democracy a central part of media coverage, not a sidelight; to stop treating campaigns like so many horse races; to have coverage reflect a sharp focus on government rather than politics; to label this coverage in a defining and memorable way.

    The midterm elections may be the most consequential ones in American history. They are less than six months away, and many Americans donít understand how high the stakes really are. Thereís not much time to fix that.

    If Republicans take one or both houses of Congress, and if Trump or another Trump-inspired Republican runs for president in 2024, Koppelman added, “there may be no stopping the tide.” These true believers will see to it that the Republican nominee is declared the winner — even if it takes a coup to do so. (Let’s face it: We saw that very thing attempted on Jan. 6 last year when a violent mob stormed the Capitol and demanded the election results be reversed.)

    January 6th isn't going to be a big player come this election day, and what impact it plays could be determined on what the Committee delivers in it's hearings and final report. Combined with the Court's ruling on abortion and guns due this June combined the base will be motivated, but the Democrats are facing historical, demographic, and economic hurdles too difficult to overcome, at least with the House election

    However, come 2024, if Trump does succeed in becoming the GOP nominee, and there is not reason now why he wouldn't, January 6th will become an issue
