The Democratic Party: A Hilarious Take on Tuesday’s Election Results
According to projections, Democrats are poised to come out on top in several key races from Tuesday’s elections. This is a clear indication that abortion continues to be a major issue for voters and that the party can still succeed, even in conservative states, despite President Joe Biden’s less-than-stellar approval ratings.
The Ohio Abortion Referendum
In Ohio, voters were all set to pass State Issue 1 by a significant margin. This referendum aimed at enshrining the “right to make and carry out one’s own reproductive decisions” including abortions into the state constitution. It’s worth noting that Trump won this state twice by an 8-point margin and they recently elected both a Republican governor and senator. So much for being red!
Virginia Flips Control of Entire State Legislature
If you thought Virginia was going full MAGA after Glenn Youngkin pushed hard for GOP control with his pitch of a 15-week “limit” on abortion access—think again! The Democrats came through loud and proud winning control over the entire state legislature as they warned against Republicans trying to restrict women’s rights.
Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear Wins Again!
But wait… there’s more! Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear secured another term despite it being solidly Trump country just three years ago when he trounced former President Donald Trump. And let’s not forget about Daniel Cameron—a rising star who lost big time as well.
This Just In: Backlash Against Roe v Wade is Here To Stay
Tuesday confirmed what we already knew – people really care about their right to choose (gasp!) after last year’s Supreme Court decision putting constitutional protections for abortion at risk.
Republican messaging around abortion has been inconsistent at best – should there be federal restrictions? What exceptions should apply? How late into pregnancy will they allow or disallow procedures?
A Bad Night For GOP Rising Stars
Youngkin may have scored an upset win two years back but his involvement in legislative elections proved fruitless this time around leaving questions about his future political prospects.
And don’t get us started on Cameron who failed miserably despite having McConnell AND Trump behind him…ouch!
Beshear Shows Dems Can Win Without Going Full Liberal
Beshear managed quite nicely without riding solely on national party branding running instead based on local issues such as COVID-19 recovery efforts among other things.
Mississippi Offers Hope For The Republicans?
Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves secures second term amid scandal rumors while facing off against Elvis’ cousin Brandon Presley–the radical Democrat.
Philadelphia Elects First Female Mayor Cherelle ParkerSamp
Philly makes history electing its first female mayor amidst endorsements from Biden & Harris.
Dems Keep Winning Despite Poor Poll Numbers Small
It might sound shocking but it appears recent polls showing Biden trailing behind aren’t doing much damage given how consistent Democratic victories have been during non-presidential elections since he took office.
Biden Takes Victory Lap Strong
Biden makes calls congratulating successful candidates while throwing shade at poll numbers suggesting otherwise.
Conclusion: As long as Republicans continue embracing unpopular stances like limiting women’s rights or backing extreme candidates—they’re going nowhere fast!
