There is almost no doubt left as to the trouble that the Democratic Party is in coming up on the 2022 midterms, and some of their most vocal strategists are now suggesting some questionable methods to keep things competitive.
The midterms appear to be in the crosshairs of a “red wave”, as the GOP stands to gain a great deal of ground in Congress thanks to the incredibly anemic job performance of Joe Biden.
This has James Carville considering some unethical and immoral electoral strategies.
Democratic strategist James Carville pushed back on Saturday against CNN’s Jim Acosta over concerns about Democrat interference in Republican primaries.
Acosta questioned the ongoing strategy of Democrat groups boosting “extremist Republicans” during the primaries to ensure their presence in the midterm elections.
“This has been something that’s been talked about quite a bit in Democratic circles as to whether or not this is good idea. We’ve seen efforts by Democratic campaigns and outside groups to tilt the playing field in their favor by propping up extremist Republican candidates in some of these very critical races around the country, the idea that it would make it easier for Democrats to win,” Acosta said.
There was the possibility of a major backfire, though.
“But on the flip side,” he warned. “If the vote doesn’t go their way, you could end up with conspiracy theorists, election deniers and so on in some pretty important places.”
The suggestion not only denotes the Democrat’s moral morass, but also their undeniable desperation – an unholy combination in American politics if there ever was one.
