Beware the Democrat Firewall

Posted on April 6, 2022 by Howard Roark


The most recent Real Clear Politics poll shows Joe Biden with a disapproval rating of 53.8 percent and only 41 percent approval, which, understandably, has Republicans celebrating.

But before they pop the cork on the champagne, it might be wise to ask the question, who in the world are the 41 percent who say they approve of Biden’s presidency?  No one in their right mind could seriously believe Sleepy is doing a good job, not even a lifelong Democrat.  So, why are millions of people still giving Biden a thumbs up?

There are really only two possibilities.  Either they are low-information morons or they are out of their minds.  Either way, these people harbor such deep hatred for America, democracy, the rule of law, and Republicans that they would vote for Vladimir Putin if he was the only alternative to a GOP candidate.

In real terms, this translates into diehard Democrats providing a permanent firewall for their party, which is why the Dems only need to sway 5-10 percent of voters to win any particular election.  That’s a huge advantage, because Republicans have no such firewall.  Consider that George W. Bush left office with a 22 percent approval rating, while even pitiful Jimmy Carter managed to clock in at 44 percent when he exited the White House.

What all this means is that Republicans have to please those squishy folks in the middle in order to win elections, which in the past meant being on their good behavior, acting like proper ladies and gentlemen, and not attacking Democrats.  But the past is not the present, and if Republicans rely on that strategy to work again, they may manage to pull defeat from the jaws of victory in November.

Why?  Because, thanks to the Radical Left crowd in the Democrat Party, independents have seen and heard enough from the wokesters to make conservatism look like paradise to them.  All Republicans need to do to win is let it be known, loud and clear, that they stand for the exact opposite of virtually everything Democrats have been pushing since they achieved full control of the federal government.

Let’s hope they’re up to that seemingly simple task, but with leaders like Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnell, it might be wise not to bet the farm on it.

    “Either they are low-information morons or they are out of their minds. ” Um, this doesn’t have to be either-or, it is likely to be both. And it’s true, the cocktail party Republicans aren’t known for their ability to wage a real fight. They’re still too busy trying to placate the media talking heads instead of their constituent base. Even if the House turns over and the Senate gains Republican members, I don’t look for the status quo to change one iota.

  3. Not to mention the fact tat they have no problem cheating or going to the courts to get reality overturned. They also have 99% support of the S.C.U.M. (So Called Unbiased Media) that will lie for them every single day.

    Also keep in mind that the corporate news media and the social media tech companies have yet to go into high gear with pre-election propaganda and selective censorship in favor of Democrats. Once they do, look for those poll numbers to shift, and maybe dramatically.

    Low information morons and ideologically driven idiots to the exclusion of all rational thought and common sense are why we are where we are in this country. To assume this will shift radically the other way is probably equally irrational. I am assuming if the GOP puts up even a modicum of effort they will at least capture the House and *maybe* the Senate, but they won’t keep it for the long haul. Eventually, the GOP will get stupid and will lose control again in the future.

    Meanwhile, until they do lose control again I think the best we can hope for is they can keep the radical left from moving the ball much further down the field. I have zero hope the GOP will gain yardage in the opposite direction. I gave up on that dream a loooooong time ago.

    Another big question: Why did Divine Providence give us Biden/Harris/Pelosi/Schumer?

    • Pat says:

      God rarely interferes with the decisions of human beings. He gave us free will. Blame the people who supported these people, and the ones who added many fraudulent votes in the last election. God promised to redeem a nation that repents. As long as we are murdering millions of unborn babies, as long as we tolerate the COVID death shots, as long as old people and disabled people are being euthanized, we as a nation have not repented.

    You are right, All this talk about a RED Victory tis Nov. could be like the Victory in 1948 with Truman and Dewey

  8. Regarding the “Democratic firewall”
    Great article, but it left out one decisive and important facto of voters decision making.
    The Trump Factor. To some voters of all persuasions Republican, Independant, and Dems
    Donald Trump is a mean, cruel,divisive immoral person and they will never vote for him
    especially if they are Democratic. They do not like Nor trust him.

    Trump must stop personalizing and attacking every criticism by trying to destroy that person. He has a much better opportunity to turn a no vote to a YES vote if he rises above Personality Pol itics and stresste the Benefits of His Accomplishments, smile more, talks posative and becomes a Charismatic, unifying President, inviting all voters to warmly join in the movement. Share the Benefits of his presidency not just the features.
