If that pattern holds in November, the worst-case scenario for the GOP is a truly historic wipeout of as many as 72 House seats, according to The Hill’s analysis of special election results and congressional and presidential returns from 2016.
It is bad news, but I am not surprised. I know I am not very enthused with my Representative since I was redistricted and ended up with the psycho Rodeo Clown of Frederica Wilson. But I don’t really see my friends giving too much of a shit about GOP candidates either.
We have not seen a reason why back the GOP and actually seen them do the eye-batting towards the Democrat voter side in the hopes that they can suck up some votes which apparently nobody told them it is not going to happen. The House GOP ignored Gun Owners and they are on their way to get a George W. Bush-style defeat, which could have been avoided if they just simply made an effort to discuss National Reciprocity on the floor, nothing more. At least pretend you give a shit, you know?
I have not polled Florida gun owners, but I have not heard/read anybody supporting Governor Scott for his run after Bill Nelson’s seat in DC. In fact, they have been deafening in the collective silence.
Our “problem” is that we do not vote Democrat even when they are dressed as Republicans and make all the appropriate noises.
