The Morning Rant
An Election Like No Other
Dave in Fla

Monkey.png

Before I get into the numbers, I have a message to anyone reading this who is involved in a GOP State Party.

Go talk to the State Parties in Florida and California. Find out what they are doing and copy it. If you want to win in the future, those two states are your template.

The 2022 Midterms are behind us now, and as we look back on what happened, there are historical anomalies that must be understood if the Republicans want to win elections in the future [narrator: clearly, in many cases, they don't want to win elections]

2022 was a generational opportunity to realign the political landscape, and it slipped through the fingers of the Republican Party. This was not the fault of the Republican voters. They did their part, it was a combination of institutional blindness and incompetence that led to failing to capitalize on the political forces that were supporting them. Regardless of what the Democrats are doing, it was 100% the fault of the Republicans for learning the wrong lessons of 2018 and 2020 and not having a plan to execute an election victory. It is particularly damming when you can look at states like Florida and California, two opposite sides of the political spectrum, where the state parties performed extremely well.

2022 nationally was a Republican +4 year, where about 4% more people voted for Republican candidates than Democrat candidates. This contrasts with 2020 where the "official" result was about 2% more votes for Democrats than Republicans. This 6 point shift toward the Republicans should have resulted in a general shift nationwide in all of the states from 3 to 9 points. While this doesn't mean all Republicans will win, it means swing districts and states should have shown the same general trends. This was supported by very strong historical patterns of a very unpopular sitting President, an economic recession affecting the entire nation, and strong Republican advantage on 4 of the 5 issues of highest importance to the electorate.

How strong is this trend? This trend has resulted in political victory in 100% of the elections in this country dating back to the founding. 2022 is the first time in history that the election results did not reflect the national mood of the country.

And for the most part, nationwide, this trend did hold in 2022.

Except where it didn't.

Look at the following chart showing the shift in voting strength by party between 2020 and 2022 in most of the states (caveat - I wasn't able to easily get data on some states, so I've left some important states like Colorado and California off, also these numbers were based on numbers before final counts were certified). I have highlighted 14 states where the results did not match the expected historical trends, or the trends seen in the rest of the country. In most states we saw the GOP exceed their performance in 2020 from +3 (Nevada and Ohio) to +10 (Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, New York, and South Carolina). There was even a crazy R+14 in Utah and Mississippi. This happened in Red states and Blue states, and also across regions. You can't say Democrats over performed because of Dobbs, because then why didn't they over perform in Connecticut, Florida, New York, and Maryland? You can't blame it on Dominion, because Dominion isn't used in all of these states. You can't even blame it on mail in/early voting because those systems are used in Florida, Utah, and Oregon.

State Swings.JPG

While it isn't a universal statement, it appears the Democrats were able to over perform in the states where they really wanted to do so. Here are my thoughts on what happened in each state.

Arizona - Stopping Lake and Masters was a priority for both Democrats and the McCain wing of the Arizona GOP. Between ballot harvesting in Phoenix and the purposeful election day chaos in Republican precincts they were able to turn the state into R+0 where polling indicated the state would be R+5.

Georgia - This is a prime example of the effectiveness of the Democrat tactics. While the rest of Georgia overperformed 2020 by R+8, Atlanta was only R+2, forcing Walker into the runoff.

Indiana - While I have no real knowledge if there was a problem here, I am noting that R+2 was lower than expected, although like Ohio at R+3.

Kansas - This R+0 really stands out and was what allowed the Governor there to survive. It is very different from Oklahoma and Missouri.

Maine - The D+8 here sticks out like a sore thumb. In 2020, ME-2 voted for Trump, but this year they voted to reelect their lockdown governor?

Massachusetts and Vermont - Both of these were R+1 and I think reflective of these being states where the Democrat abortion message was likely effective.

Minnesota - Similar to Georgia, the rest of Minnesota was R+7, but the Twin Cities were R+2. The Democrat tactics worked here as well.

Michigan - This state was ground zero for the Democrat machine to find ballots and voters. Getting Whitmer to win, along with winning MI-3, holding MI-7, and getting the ballot initiatives passed were a top priority for the Democrats. They spent a lot of money in this state.

Montana - I have no explanation for the R+0 in this state. It appears to me that the Democrats were making a play for one of the congressional seats and came up a bit short.

New Hampshire - D+2 when the rest of the country moved R+4? Yet Sununu won the election?

Pennsylvania - R+0 when every neighboring state moved toward the Republicans in significant numbers. There are areas in the Northeast and Southwest where people who voted for Trump in 2020 appear to have not voted, or at least their vote share was overwhelmed by Democrat votes in the region.

Virginia - Interesting that the state was R+8, but VA-7 was R+0. This single district anomaly in Virginia kept the seat from flipping.

Washington - This R+0 resulted in Murray's race being much less competitive than was expected, and Joe Kent's loss in WA-3, which should have been an easy hold.

Wisconsin - Similar to Georgia and Minnesota. Outside the urban areas you saw R+6, but in the urban areas it was R+0. This cannot be explained by calling Michaels a bad candidate or not spending enough money.

Wyoming - My theory is that this is R+0 simply because Republicans have maximized turnout in the state.

We can argue about whether the anomalies in these 14 states are due to an election machine or fraud (embrace the power of "and"). But whatever the Democrats are doing, it has been effective now for 3 election cycles. If the GOP wants to win they must find a way to respond effectively.

I want to leave you with an understanding of why the Republicans in Florida were able to dominate the Democrats, despite the heavy use of mail-in voting and early voting in the state.

Florida Early Vote.JPG

By the time election day arrived, the race was already over. Republicans already had a 300,000 vote lead when the polls opened. There was no surviving that level of crushing performance, and DeSantis and Rubio went on to win counties that are never won by Republicans like Miami-Dade and Hillsborough.

I really don't think so, and that's really a problem. A serious one.

It was not blindness or incompetence. The GOP did not want a "red wave." They did not want to win. They wanted to barely squeak by and end up with thin majorities and no mandate, but with additional power positions. That's it. They didn't want a victory.

It isn't that they failed to achieve victory, it's that victory is not their ambition. They'd rather lose than win, if winning means that someone who isn't cut from the Uniparty cloth might get influence.

I can't blame this on ineptitude or institutional blindness. The GOP hates - actually, literally and viscerally *hates* - its voters. They failed on purpose.

19 It helps to examine who the state parties are--by that I mean the people. Alabama, where I live, for example. GOP hold for decades, right? Well...yes and no. If you look at who a lot of the long time stalwarts in the state party are, you find a lot of them were Democrats, such as the soon-to-retire Richard Shelby. They all started flipping in the late '80s and early '90s when the mood of the area shifted. The reason is simple--career survival. They switched to stay in office.

And of course, they then got to pick successors and others who entered the high ranks. Thus you have a "Red" state that acts suspiciously squishy in many ways.

I'd be willing to bet similar dynamics are in play elsewhere.

20 Not to worry, The GOP is putting together a blue ribbon, "LESSONS LEARNED," committee that will issue a report sometime in late 23 early 24.


And we are definitely going to lose GA.

John Fredericks was on the War Room the other day and said the Donks have banked a 250k ballot lead over Walker, in the early voting.

The way we conducted elections are a thing of the past, it's no longer a GOTV effort, it's a chasing ballots and getting them to the tabulators by any means necessary.

It also means that wherever Donks have a registration advantage, they will be able to leverage that into a ballot lead most of the time.

The national GOP is not doing a damn thing to address any of this.

Four things:
1. Don't hate your own base and deliberately kneecap your own candidates
2. In cheat-by-mail states, get aggressive on micro-targeting ballots. Send out door-knockers to go register voters and go get those ballots returned. Who cares if they're Republicans? Lie to them. Get the signature. The Dems ain't running on a message, they're running on ballot targeting. Do the same.
3. Stop targeting day-of voting in early voting states. Cheat-by-mail and early voting are both appalling fraud opportunities, but where they exist, the GOP needs to exploit both.
4. Cheat to the greatest extent you think you can get away with. Harvest ballots, target institutional populations - everything the Dems do, they need to do, too, as carefully as they can manage.

Thanks, Dave in FL for you analysis.

And OT, RMBS, I am going to look for "Man of God" because I appreciate what I've read about that Saint. I have asked him to intercede for our little church. He seems like he wouldn't have really minded Protestants as long as they loved Jesus and the church. Anyway, I am dealing with a church member who loves the church who refers to me as "paid employee of the churchl" maybe because he never comes to church except for Christmas and has not had many personal/pastoral dealings with me. Anyway, this is exceedingly minor compared to what Saint Nektorius of Aegina went through, but I thought of him when I read a selection and note regarding Psalm 9 which is in the Daily Tech Thread #77. God vindicated him.

They'll issue their report well before then. It will say, essentially, "the MAGA message is off-putting and Trump's influence is corrosive to the natural Republican vote in various key states. We need to return to being a center-left party and repudiate the MAGA ideology." A few people will dissent. The GOP machinery will double down on what lost them (deliberately) the election this year unless the MAGA types go away.

Be that as it may, Warnock has a very large, very substantial ballot lead that is going to be hard to overcome.

Again, as Fredericks noted, when the Donks judge shopped to get early voting started even earlier, the Donks immediately started early balloting, meanwhile the GOP went to court and lost, they went back to court and lost, instead of spinning up any early balloting, and wasted weeks fighting a losing battle.

Again, elections of the past are over and now it's simply a game of who can collect as many pieces of paper and jam them into tabulators.

It isn't incompetence. It might be hubris and it might be reckless, but it isn't incompetent. The Democrats don't do this because they want to win. They're in charge and even a weak victory still runs up their numbers.

The Republican side of the Uniparty is different. They are happy with - in fact, they actively court - weak candidates and weak victories. It's the *strong* candidates that they attack, not the weak ones. They don't want them in play, because they might upset the corrupt, feculent, rotten apple cart they have set up in Washington.

48 Dem postal workers get caught dumping ballots and nothing happens to them. R's get caught "parading" at the capitol and are locked up for two years without trial.

GatewayP has another cheat ... they change the zip codes for a day, mail them and change the zip back. Someone then collects the wrongly addressed ballots, and manages to vote with them. Some voters might show up to vote and be told they already voted ... (then who "adjudicates" which vote counts?)

The full power of DOJ and FBI is helping with all the cheats. Chain of custody violations are ignored, nothing happens to them. There might still ways to overcome the criminals running government, or maybe not ... they just cheat more and threaten any that protest. But still important to vote, and get involved.

49 The only bright-side to the likely loss by Walker in the run-off is that this loss will be squarely on Kemp and McConnell. They are the ones putting the mighty weight of their electoral juggernaut behind the Walker runoff. This loss will be blamed directly on the GOPe.

As said upthread, the Democrat machine has banked a 250K lead already. Walker needs massive election day turnout in the counties outside Atlanta. There is huge risk in depending on this outcome. Which is why Florida was so effective. It is easier to win when you get to election day leading.

Sure, but it won't matter. They're going to re-elect the same leadership. The RNC leadership will remain intact. McConnell is going to remain in position. McCarthy will either remain in position or petulantly destroy the entire the Party in the fight in the House.

I hope for the latter outcome. Take the House majority and leave a Democrat speaker in place. Who cares at this point. McCarthy and the Freedom Caucus both holding out, creating a deadlock and failing to secure the Speakership is probably the best outcome. The GOP probably dies if that happens.

Everyone knows there is fraud but getting a court to hear any of these suits and cases is nigh impossible without substantial, incontrovertible evidence of the fraud, that can't be produced because the perpetrators of the fraud control the system and thus can delay, obfuscate and deny access to the machines and ballots.

So the only way forward as others have said is to create a ballot harvesting and ballot fortification juggernaut that swamps the Donks efforts.

Anything else is masturbation.

61 Fighting mail in voting just makes people mad. I know we've historically had "election day" but I think it's time to understand that is over. We have to fight the battle on the field which it exists. Once we become just as facile at get out the vote ballot targeting and harvesting, we'll again have a chance to win (looks like that's what happened in FL).

Posted by: Farmer Bob at December 01, 2022 11:24 AM (N1S7a)

62 each state GOP needs to push their voters to vote ANY legal way available and as soon as its available ... early voting or mail in voting ... get those votes in the bank ... play the game by the CURRENT rules instead of complaining about the current rules (yes they encourage fraud but they are currently legal) ... win the election THEN change the election process ...

Speaking of which, heard a local pol here on talk radio note that they sent tens of thousands of ballots to the students at U of A, AZ State, & NAU (total student body of about 130,000) -- where they were harvested and counted at a rate of 95% votes for Democrats.

THAT ALONE was enough to steal the election from Lake, Masters, et. al.

75 Post election Republicans in the senate immediately passed an attack on religious liberty. Before that they helped Democrats pass a phony infrastructure bill that, as the critics correctly stated, is helping to further devastate our economy.

Right now they are queuing up an omnibus spending bill that has every Democrat priority in it, along with a massive spending increase the economy cannot afford. McConnell and the Vichy Senate Republicans are fully on board. That is, instead of passing a CR into January where we would have control of the House and drive the process. Oddly, McCarthy is actually supporting the latter.

People like McConnell and the 12 Vichy Republicans, including the turncoat Jodi Ernst, guarantee electoral loses before the voting even gets started. These types also permeate the RNC and are largely to blame for both a lack of motivation and an effective battle plan to win. Until they are wiped from the process, nothing will change.

Its the "registration" advantage. Those people aren't voting, some of them are dead. If you clean up the rolls, you reduce the margin of their ability to "harvest". They are cheating their assess off and have been for years.

128 From my perspective the colossal Republican cockup in the midterms was a direct result of the GOP sitting on its ass, for years, while the Democrats ran amok nationally and fundamentally rigged elections from who gets the most votes wins to who gets the most ballots wins. Until election laws are fixed the odds of the current situation moving towards the Republicans on a grand scale are zero outside of its current strongholds.

All this talk that the problem was the polls can't be trusted or the candidates were not good enough is more hogwash than fact. I strongly suspect a major reason polls are completely fubar is elections are so gamed by the Democrats that attempting to poll the electorate is neigh impossible or more accurately useless. Same goes for candidates: how many stunning come from behind elections have the Democrats won over the last few elections? More than a few with the 2004 Washington State governor's race being the model for what is happening today. Kari Lake lost not because she was a weak candidate; she lost because she could never win.

135 If there's fraud, why do people think the fraud cant happen on election day? it's sort of a stupid argument.

No it isn't a stupid argument. A stupid argument is just calling something stupid without showing it.

If you have one day to vote, you only have one day to cheat. It takes a lot of time and leg work to execute a massive cheat operation and if you give people months or even weeks to vote, you advantage the cheaters and disadvantage those who respect the franchise. You may disagree, but its not stupid. Its a legit problem. You on the other hand don't offer any logical arguments. You give your opinions, backed up by special knowledge gleaned from your "friend" who runs a campaign, probably a dem, and you personal experience. That's fine. It is what it is. To be sooo strident, to work it endlessly like it is a job, means you either have OCD or you are in fact, working it like a job because it is a job. If you have OCD, I get it, that can be a tough one. Try and distract yourself with other things. Medication doesn't really help that much with it.

142 Joe Kent lost because that district is turning blue, due to the Portlanders moving to Clark County to get away from high property taxes (the other counties in the district are conservative).

The Dem Gov won re-election (from what I can tell) because the Repub candidate is GOPe, that voted for open borders. There was a conservative candidate running that likely split the vote.

We don't. Mail-in voting is here to stay wherever it exists. Any place that doesn't already have cheat-by-mail or early voting should never implement it, and the GOP needs to fight it tooth and nail if they try.

Where it already exists, though, it is never going away. It benefits the Democrats, largely, and they win with it. If a Republican were to cheat like the Democrats do and get away with it, then that machinery will benefit the local Republican establishment. In neither case would either party be interesting in getting rid of such a useful tool. Wherever these schemes exist, they will continue to exist forever. In areas that have those systems, the Republicans need a different playbook: the Dems' playbook.

Yes, and the strategy the GOP should adopt is obvious:

2. For current elections, do everything the dems do - ballot harvesting, "curing" ballots etc.
3. This is important - rinse and repeat until #1 is universal

And yes, the reason it doesn't get adopted, in spite of being obvious, is because the GOP doesn't want to win.

207 The CA GOP barely even exists, they aren't a template for anything. I'd bet more republicans voted based off random voter guides sent in the mail than the state or county party endorsements.

208 It MUST be noted here that the DeSantis Administration worked diligently to both cleans and secure the voter rolls. By 'securing' I mean what Jay Valentine is talking about over at American Thinker. Look him up as democrats are evil genius at manipulating 'voters' in and out of the rolls prior to being noticed.

This is the reason Florida went full red. Yes, DeSantis is great, but especially so for this reason.

209 The problem in Pennsylvania is the corruption. Virtually every polling station is manned by Democrats who harvest the needed ballots. They have done so since 2008. It's an open secret. Democrats, especially Fetterman, didn't get more voters, they just collected more ballots. Many of those ballots are not tied to voters at all....an nobody cares to stop it. It's why our state government has virtually no support among the citizens, because hardly anyone voted for them, yet they collected more ballots. True banana republic in Pennsylvania right now.

212 All of Louisiana's Republicans went back to Washington. Mike Johnson had no opposition. John Kennedy got 68% against 12 opponents and didn't need a runoff. Cassidy is probalby going to get the boot, but that means he can be Susan "The Maine Pain" Collin's OBGYN full time.

213 The "it's all about ballot harvesting!" analysis is all the rage right now.
To the extent it's worked in CA, it could be because Democrats weren't aware that the GOP was playing their game.

fwiw, I live in one of the bluest areas in CA. There were more signs for the GOP rep than the Democrat for the first time ever.
My local "voting center" was crawling with voters although there was a storm (!!!) on Election Day and although we are encouraged to vote by mail. Legal ballots voted GOP, I believe. But where there is all mail-in voting, there are always abundant fortifications
