Skip to comments.Opinion: Two new studies show why Trump's hate and lies are failing

The closing campaign strategy of President Donald Trump and Republicans is often depicted as mainly an effort to galvanize the GOP's blue-collar white base through fear-mongering about immigrants and incitement of racial-cultural tensions around imagery of angry Democratic mobs and protesting African American athletes.
But there's a second piece to the strategy that's also crucial: Trump and Republicans want college-educated white voters, particularly suburban women, to ignore all that unpleasant racial and cultural demagoguery entirely - and focus only on the economy.
It is widely observed that Democrats are favored to take back the House because of a backlash against Trump's ugly personal characteristics and verbal displays of racism and misogyny. But it is already discernible in Trump and Republican messaging that the public has turned on the Trump-era GOP's agenda - that is, its peculiar fusion of xenophobic ethno-nationalism with orthodox GOP regressive and plutocratic economic priorities.
Trump and Republicans are closing by lying about health care and taxes to limit losses among suburban and well-educated white voters, and lying about immigration while race-baiting against individual Democratic candidates to keep the downscale white GOP base energized. This probably won't be enough for Republicans to keep the House. But whatever is to be on this front, the need to lie so relentlessly about all these matters itself constitutes an admission of failure. The public has seen Trump's fusion of ethno-nationalism and orthodox GOP plutocracy put into governing practice, and is rejecting it.

Somebody’s in for a little disappointment shortly...
This is trash... Admin should remove it...
I felt like I was reading Soviet-era Izvestiya slogging through that veritable wall of Marxist buzzwords. Wow, they’re really chasing their tails trying to turn reality upside down to suit their delusions, here.
Wow, tell us how you really feel, simpleton. Then tell us about how great your parties were who committed vehicular man slaughter, perjury, obstruction of justice, sexual harassment, adultery, rape etc while public officials
