The Concern Is Strong Today

Everyone knew the GOP and their online allies weren't just going to give up, right? The point of the Barrett hearings is not just to install her on the Court; it's to rally their base and demoralize Democrats.

So it's no surprise that a quick survey of the board threads in the last few hours, on the opening day of the Barrett hearings, reveals loooooads of horserace stories, focus on one bad Senate poll (which even the most rudimentary analysis shows isn't credible or even that bad), and anecdotes about Dems in Disarray!! Oh noes!!

This is, of course, part of a coordinated effort to dismay and deter, and to generate polls that show a "tightening" race. It isn't going to work.

This is not 2016. It's a completely different race. The vast majority of people see the Barrett Rush for what it is. And Democrats are doing well; just as well as they were a week ago. In fact, probably better.

Vote. Donate to races if you can (that aren't oversaturated). Sign up for phone banking or texting or some other means of volunteering. Clear your head. Do something! They can't win unless we cooperate.

1. The Race Is Not Tightening

 

It has not tightened, it is unlikely to tighten. Light or dark, hate or love, this isn't 2000.

No confusion here.

It was, has been and in my view will continue to be a 54-44ish race.

3. As is your counter-concern.

Equal in both inference and validity.

to legitimate concerns.

5. I was probably somewhat demoralized in 2016 but now I'm angrier than ever and

determined that tRUMP/reThugs and cultists HAVE GOT TO GO! DarthDem has provided
a good op and it does us no good to play he said/she said and argue amongst ourselves.
