What a wonderful idea.  Nothing would guarantee Democratic control for the next 16+ years like creating a party that takes votes from only one other party.

Oh my god... all hell broke loose....

But seriously, without context, that video is very unsatisfying. Just looks like a cheap high school assembly.

Before or after they censured Jeff Flake, Doug Ducey and Cindy McCain?

i generally believe in more of a stumbling buffoon trump than a 4d chess trump, but he seems to have put down any notion of mutiny senate 'pubs may have had and never broke a sweat doing it.

I think his last 3 months in office have proved he is not some 4d chess playing anything, he only has an id and that's it. What he does have going for him as far as he knows or cares is nearly a 90% approval rating that was constant within the repub party, and overall knows he can do damn near anything and always have like 37-39% of the country no matter what. He just wants that and the adoration of it.

Any political genius thoughts come from the reaction of cucked and cowed people inside the repub party who don't want to constantly lose. This is the same thing that allowed them to keep him going in 2016, what forced them to hitch themselves/purge moderates in 2018, and what doomed them in 2020. They decided to do that, trump just decided to never change course.

MAGAs need to be given their own country. They are too many for there to be any democratic way to handle them.

I would assume the difference between moderate democrats and moderate republicans come down two one or two issues that aren't changing. I'm certain that the religious right would certainly break with the republicans and not maga, so that almost instantly maintains the divide between moderate pubs and dems.

I know that there’d still be republicans and democrats. I’m skeptical of the figures getting floated that imply that the republicans would consist only of [# of republicans in mid-2020] minus [magas who go do their own thing]. I think there’d be people who weren’t republicans in mid-2020 (because maga, gross) who’d look at the maga-free republicans and think that’s a decent fit now that the magas aren’t part of it. No idea how many.

Come on sys, this primary is so far away it doesn't even have a date yet, approximately 18 months from now. Not only that, but that poll is beyond polluted and is Rasmussen level propaganda.

It's sort of hard to envision what a MAGA-free republican party would even look like.
