22. different elections. 2018 when Manchin barely won was that once in a generation Blue Wave

and was against a really poor candidate.

Rump's election was 2020. If Manchin had run then, odds are pretty high he would have lost. He is not up for re-election for almost four years, yet he is doing things that likely hurt us in 2022. All for a potential win in 2024 that is fairly unlikely, especially if Justice runs against him. Justice has now (in the words of an actual West Virginian poster here) outflanked Manchin somewhat on the left and completely on the right. Also, as I have repeatedly said, no one has adequately explain how Manchin screwing over his voting base on multiple issues aids him in any way in 2024.

He single-handedly just ripped close to 2000 usd from millions of peoples' UE cheques (Manchin's 23 weeks at 300 PW is 6900 usd, whilst the House bill, that all but Machin supported was 22 weeks at 400 usd per week, thus 8800 usd in toto), plus he worked with Shaheen and Sinema to take away any COVID aid cheques from 17 million people (12 million adults, 5 million children). Thus people got two cheques under the POS Rump, now they get nothing under us. Also, his minimum wage demands strip away over 8000 usd per year from a full-time minimum wage West Virginian worker (11 usd ph at full-time versus 15 usd ph at fulltime yields $8,320 per annum less)
