This is sound advice from Sloppy Steve.
In the 2020 election, Joe Biden won 551 counties (16.7%) while Trump won 2,588 counties (82.3%). Joe Biden set a new record low in counties won for a winning presidential candidate because the Democrats are evolving into the party of coastal metropolitan bugmen urbanites.
“But according to the updated data, Biden won 16.7% of counties with finalized results. That represents a record-low proportion for a winning presidential candidate.
Obama set the previous record in 2012 – with 689 counties, equal to 22%. Before that, he also set a record in 2008 with just 28% of counties, per NBC News. …”
Think about it.
There is a vast inequity in available positions here in local government.
“Voter suppression” is a meme.
If you are a Republican, why the hell would you need to engage in voter suppression in rural America? You’re winning these places by blowout margins. Democrats aren’t even in the game.
Democrats are suppressing their own vote with their toxic national brand.
The reality of the situation is that in a lot of these places, especially here in rural and small town America in the South, pretty much the whole town or county is going to go to the polls and vote “Let’s Go Brandon.” There are thousands of available positions in state and local government in flyover country which will be on the ballot in the 2022 midterms and a tremendous opportunity for people who have low name ID and who can fly under the radar to run a purely local campaign and ride the backlash to victory.
Look at what is happening to Nashville:
I guess this is “voter suppression.”
You could also call it losing badly statewide.
Democrats are doing the same thing with Baltimore.
If the polls are true and they keep pointing to the same result, then White voters in rural and small town America, especially in the South and Midwest, feel like they are under attack by woke coastal liberal elites for being White and Christian. There has been an abrupt change in consciousness about this. Ezra Klein wants to get them off meat. They don’t seem to be aware of that one yet.
There is a gap between the “mainstreaming of extremism” and our relative political power and representation in government. We should try to close the gap.
