The old timers were proven right again.
Whenever a Democrat is president, Republicans start mobilizing and the Right becomes more radical and open to our ideas. We saw this during the Obama presidency. Those who are older saw it happen under the Clinton presidency. Nothing moves the needle for the Right like having a Democrat president who is doing stupid polarizing shit because that is what actually wakes new people up.
Correspondingly, the Right goes to sleep whenever a Republican is president. Those who had seen it happen several times in the past predicted that it would happen with Trump. That’s exactly what happened too. The Left was radicalized while Republican voters checked out, went to sleep for four years and assumed Trump was Making America Great Again. It is only radicals who never tune out of politics. The typical radical knows far more about the current state of politics than the typical voter.
Now that Joe Biden is president, the Left is demobilizing. The Left is going to sleep now that a Democrat is president. CNN and MSNBC’s ratings are collapsing without the Orange Lightning Rod.
