I don’t think I’d go that far, but it’s an opinion.
‘I’ve got to put a sidebar in here because after the dust settles, if Joe Biden ends up winning the presidency, then I think a lot of people are going to turn to what happened to the Democratic Party,’ said Scarborough, the host of Morning Joe, on his Friday show.
‘There is no way to put this other than to say … Joe Biden winning looks like a one-off. This election for the most part was an absolute repudiation of the Democratic Party as a brand. Their brand doesn’t work across most of America. It just doesn’t,’ he continued.[…]
He also noted that Democrats failed to flip control of a single state legislature, giving Republicans a powerful upper hand in redrawing Congressional districts in the next term, something that occurs every 10 years.
‘I was talking to the smartest, smartest data people alive that basically told me that the [poll] numbers were a mirage in Florida and across the upper Midwest,’ Scarborough concluded.
‘Those same people say that the Republicans are going to have a huge year in 2022 — just looking at this data, looking at our exit polls — if they don’t correct course, if the Democrats don’t correct course.’
