Is Dems’ Primary Plan Backfiring?

It’s not a very new or even well thought out plan. The Democrats nationally have been pouring millions of dollars into the primary campaigns of more right-wing candidates on the Republican side. Why would anyone do such a thing and back their potential opponents? Simple. They wanted to have weaker candidates make it through the GOP primaries so they would have a much easier time holding the House and Senate come midterm elections time.

The problem is the plan isn’t working.

What it has done is help a lot of Trump-supported candidates make it through the primary, which not only excites the left because they’re going to be running a campaign that makes this midterm a referendum on Donald Trump, but it also excites a lot of the Trump base who are now more excited about turning out at the polls on election day.

But that’s not what the nasty little secret is.

In a lot of parts of the country where this tactic was taking place, Democrats are watching in horror as the GOP candidates, who were behind, sometimes by double digits, like Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania was, are now within the margin of error, and two months away from the midterm, are within striking distance to make a HUGE win for the GOP.

I’m not saying that the red wave is back, at least just yet. But the polling numbers I’m seeing from around the country are moving in that direction a tad. They need to keep moving that way. But there’s another sneaky little situation that the Democrats have found themselves in.

They can’t fight the GOP on being too far right.

All the Republican candidates have to do is mention that the Democrats funded their primary campaign to the tune of “X” millions of dollars, because they were the more sensible candidate, and it blows the credibility of the Democrats’ play right out the window. After all, why would you criticize a candidate for being a right-wing nut job, when you donated millions to their very campaign that you’re now chastising? You wouldn’t unless you want to get caught with your hand in the cookie jar.

It’s just the latest attempt of Democrats who understand they have a huge uphill battle to control Congress next year, and would do anything including voter fraud and intimidation, to win. It’s straight out of the Dems’ playbook. If you can’t win normally, change the rules. If you can’t change the rules, cheat. Winning is the only thing that matters.

Wouldn’t it be funny if they didn’t have enough money because of what they did in the primaries, to back their own candidates come November?

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

  1. The nightly crime reports showing the horrors committed by monstrous criminals having been released or never even sentenced is enough to prime the red wave. The outrage by parents over the trash to which their children are exposed by teachers has enraged these parents to make a big difference too, also fueling the red wave.
