WASHINGTON D.C. — (08-01-22) — Congressional Republicans are alarmed at the massive drop in fundraising for the midterms as they continue to show the majority of Americans that they are out of sync with popular opinion.
They blocked a bill protecting the ability to cross state lines for an abortion last month, despite strong public support for such a measure. On top of that, the Texas attorney general said he is willing to defend the state’s defunct anti-sodomy law targeting gay men.
You have a GOP run states banning books and forcing LGBT teachers to conceal their spouses from view while teaching.
That’s just a tip of the iceberg of the problems plaging the GOP fundraising machine. The party’s extremists views have put the Democrats back in the lead to retain both the house and senate in November.
Four new polls came out Monday and showed that Democrats were leading not only in the House and Senate but also looks to pick up three seats in the senate.
Several republicans have said that the extreme and inflammatory rhetoric from fellow republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, saying that that heterosexual people will disappear while denouncing “trans terrorist” educators, is not helping to attract voters.
By acting like a party of uncompromising people entrenched with rhetoric on key social issues, are escalating concerns within GOP circles that the party is moving too far out of sync with popular opinion.
By projecting new hostility towards gay people and alienating women voters in high-stakes races is causing concern for the GOP, especially with women making up 52% of the electorate and historically turning out a 63% voter ratio vs 59% for men.
