The first political data of 2022 was provided by the voters of Texas yesterday. There’s only one piece of datum which really counts: 800,00 more Republican voters than Democrats.
Elections are decided by who turns out, and Texas proves that R’s are far more anxious to vote than D’s. It makes perfect sense. Aside from habitual voters, Democrats are dispirited and disillusioned. Republicans are pissed off.
I mean, really, if you’re a Democrat why in the hell would you run for office this year? And why would you bother voting? Trump’s not on the ballot, so you have nothing to motivate you.
We’re just eight months away from a blowout.
