Voters care about the economy, but many voters value other things more.
It’ll be obvious in hindsight how people got tired of Donald Trump and his chaos.
How ripping away from half the country the basic right to control one’s own body actually offended and terrified people. This was because they were able to weigh in on our government’s decision.
It is clear, in hindsight that it was a disturbed person who spoke right-wing slogans, supported by Republican Party. A man broke into the house of Speaker of the House, attacked her husband, 82-years-old, and hammered him with a hammer days before the election. This shocked the consciences even of decent people.
And that many Republican leaders who mocked that attack – indeed, spread absurd conspiracy theories about it – instead of condemning violent political rhetoric and offering sympathy to the man lying in a hospital might have struck some decent people as just plain indecent.
Perhaps a tech billionaire, enamored with his newly-minted media power, is determined to share his every thought and emotion in a way that makes people think twice about giving up their agency to a party that doesn’t seem to be serving the majority.
Gas prices are too high, and that’s a fact. Groceries cost much more now than they did in January. But that these other larger issues that also impact our daily lives – basic personal freedom, respectful disagreement, a yearning forNormalcy, dammit – gnawed at our collective common sense. And these feelings got many people to the polls who otherwise wouldn’t have bothered.
In hindsight, the absence of a Red Wave may not have been as surprising as it appeared on Election Night. It might be possible to see that the Red Wave, which saw the Oval Office taken over by the party in the first midterm election, is bucking long-term historical trends and taking a beating at the first.
However, transparency in attempts to suppress voting and raising alarm about fraud or attempts to manipulate the vote has seemed to have lessened their power.
This may seem overwhelming at the time. But I’m sure that in hindsight it will all make perfect sense.
