Opinion in Brief

Erick Erickson: “For perspective, in November last year, the Democrat challenger to Congressman Tom Price received 38.3 percent of the popular vote in the sixth congressional district of Georgia. Jon Ossoff only improved that by 10 percent with $30 million. Democrats may say the race should not have been that close, but the reality is spending that much money to drive out 100 percent of Democrats plus some anti-Trump Republicans cost them $30 million they now cannot spend elsewhere. And they still lost. … The violence generated by left-wing activists is enough to turn off swing voters. From a mass assassination attempt in Washington by a Bernie Sanders supporter to left-wing activists burning down small businesses, rioting, blocking conservatives from college campuses, and persecuting Christian small businessmen, the GOP has a plausible argument that emboldening the Democrats will just cause more violence. The Democrats’ unyielding anger could be what keeps them motivated for a year, but could also be what causes their defeat in 2018.”
