The Voters Are The Problem – Latest News Update

To hear the establishment Republicans in Washington tell it, we’ve found the problem – it’s the voters.

Well, they don’t quite put it that way. Instead, they blame Republican losses on “candidate quality.” But let’s be honest about what that means: that’s a direct attack on the people who elect the candidates, otherwise known as the voters.

Of course there is a grain of truth in it. Some candidates are better than others, and the best candidate doesn’t always win. That’s what I have the T-shirt for. But the candidate who gets the most votes tends to win, and you get votes from voters. So again, the voters are the real problem.

That’s why many in Washington believe that everything would be fine if she could select which candidates represent the Republican Party. After all, the people based in Washington are more sophisticated and educated about these matters than the silly mob that attends Lincoln Day dinners wearing silly hats on the rubber chicken circuit.

As Republicans in Washington lick their wounds over the wave of 2022 bubbling, many of DC’s self-declared smart guys are talking big about joining the primaries to address the “candidate quality” issue. It seems the uninformed voters out there in the fly-overland need our help.

To be fair, both parties occasionally nominate non-ideal candidates. It always has been, and some of those unideal candidates currently serve in both the House and Senate.

The overconfidence that suggests that Washington politicians, political consultants, and national party committees make better choices or, for some strange reason, deserve to make those choices is remarkably elitist. You embrace democracy and your own voters or not. Many in the Washington-based Republican Party do not and never have.

With the Republican National Committee launching another public autopsy (how many times can you examine a corpse?), it is certain that some will push for a discussion on how to convince Republican primary voters to do better at taking orders from Washington. I predict it will be a short discussion. The idea of ​​DC party leaders electing candidates will be embraced by about zero conservatives and Republicans outside Washington’s beltway, despite its popularity among DC’s chattering class.

In the real world outside of Washington, if a candidate stood up at a Republican Party rally and said, “Hi, I’m running for the Senate and you should vote for me because I have the support of the Republican leadership in Washington.” ‘, the jeers would be immediate, deafening and well-deserved.

The story after every election is always the same in Washington. When a candidate loses, he or she is immediately declared a bad candidate. When a candidate wins, it’s because the consultants, super-PACs, and donors dragged them across the finish line. Then the lobbyists show up at the congressional office and say, “I was in secret from you all along.”

The gulf between the views of the Republican establishment in Washington and Republican voters outside DC has never been wider. In Washington, they want candidates who won’t rock the boat and play by the old rule, “to get along, you have to go along.” Outside Washington, voters want the exact opposite.

This tension will not last forever; my money is on the voters.
