The midterms were a significant setback for the MAGA crowd, with many Trump-supported candidates losing their elections. With a few important exceptions, it appears that the big conclusion from Tuesday’s midterms is that the people’s coalition that sent Trump packing two years ago remains formidable — the anti-MAGA majority remains strong. Congratulations! Indeed, the much-vaunted Republican wave failed to materialize as key extreme, election-denying Trump-backed MAGA candidates went down to defeat. Without a doubt, a key issue driving turnout was abortion rights. Indeed it was the most important issue for young voters, 70 percent of whom in some states voted for Democratic candidates – a huge generational shift. Led by a huge surge of working-class women, African Americans, Latino, Asian and youth voters, democracy, while remaining severely challenged, secured a second electoral wind.
Republicans Want to Blame Their Election Disaster on Trump. Don’t Fall for It.
They remade their party in his image. Now they want to say they’re over him? Fine. All they have to do is say they oppose his 2024 candidacy.
