The good news keeps rolling in.
“In the days after the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, the phone lines and websites of local election officials across the country were jumping: Tens of thousands of Republicans were calling or logging on to switch their party affiliations.
In California, more than 33,000 registered Republicans left the party during the three weeks after the Washington riot. In Pennsylvania, more than 12,000 voters left the G.O.P. in the past month, and more than 10,000 Republicans changed their registration in Arizona.
An analysis of January voting records by The New York Times found that nearly 140,000 Republicans had quit the party in 25 states that had readily available data (19 states do not have registration by party). Voting experts said the data indicated a stronger-than-usual flight from a political party after a presidential election, as well as the potential start of a damaging period for G.O.P. registrations as voters recoil from the Capitol violence and its fallout. …
“I look up to the Jeffry Flakes and the Cindy McCains,” she said. “To see the G.O.P. go after them, specifically, when they speak in ways that I resonate with just shows me that there’s nothing left in the G.O.P. for me to stand for. And it’s really sad.” …”
Look at it this way:
Donald Trump is gone.
Neoliberal Joe is president.
Joe’s agenda is hamstrung by a 50/50 Senate.
Trump voters still control the Republican Party.
The demographic base of the GOP establishment is crumbling.
The Democrats will lose the House due to reapportionment in 2022.
The populist and paleocon wing of the Republican Party is now dominant.
64% of Trump voters say in polls that their racial identity is important now.
Populist voters are consolidating around the shifting politics of wealth redistribution.
The Jeff Flakes and John McCains of the world and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce are migrating over to poison the Democrats which is becoming the party of wealthy elites.
Far from being the end of the world, I am feeling bullish about this transformation. You’ve got a more working class electorate, fewer pearl clutching suburbanites, a weaker establishment, a hunger for change, a growing recognition about what are the obvious problems, Sheldon Adelson is dead and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has taken a hike. Many of the big donors just can’t even anymore and the base of the Republican Party is starting to feel their inner whiteness under woke sharia.
