Each month, I file a “Dispatch from DC” with the UK-based Mallard – a magazine run by actual conservatives.
For the past several months, I have been reflecting on the Republican Party’s chances in these mid term elections. I thought, since most of you are not Mallard subscribers (yet), that I would share some of the critical predictions I made this summer.
Let’s take a look at the August and September editions, of which I have included scans of the magazines below, lest you think I were editing my copy to fit the results.
The critical parts, in case you cannot read the image, state:
“In amongst the confusion of these mixed feelings of anxiety, despair, hopefulness, and celebration, there is also a bizarre amount of complacence on the right.
“But let me be clear: I do not like what I see. On average, the gap the Republican Party leads by on the generic ballot i.e. ‘Will you vote Republican or Democrat in November’s mid terms?’ is shrinking, fast.”
“As I write, it is still August, and the numbers are shrinking further for Republicans as corporate media outlets parrot pro-Biden lines about his Inflation Reduction Act…”
If you’re not yet subscribed (it’s free) then I hope my prescience will convince you:
And now, to September.
The critical part here?
"Meanwhile, I remain bearish about the Republican Party’s fortunes in the months to come. The House? Sure, they can take it. The Senate? I’m not so sure.”
– Raheem Kassam, The Mallard, September 2022
In other words, a small and rather new magazine in England had probably some of the most accurate predictions about the fortunes of the Republicans in the mid terms. How did I do it? Well, I didn’t listen to the pundits, the talking heads, the podcasts, and so forth. I did my own damn research. And used my own damn gut. Which has been quite reliable, by the way, over the years.
So, where next?
I explain more in this new podcast (out today) with Jeremy Ryan Slate. I’m working my ass off over here, for you. For free. So I hope this helps. And I hope you’ll share all of this.
Anyway, as you Americans say: nailed it!
Look at the results in Florida. A total outlier. Why?
Could it be the lack of election fraud?
You certainly nailed it! Could it be that as you stated the malaise of the useless right???!!! hates president Trump? Not the voters, they were out there, but those who controlled the outcome of another fraudulent election.There was incessant cheating which would not have happened without the help of traitous so-called republicans, just as in 2020, and I recall the republican party did not endorse any of the Trump policies that helped all Americans, ( even those who didn't deserve it)! - during his presidency!! I will go so far as to say, all that has happened to destroy America is the fault of the republican party who does nothing to stop the absurd, and evil policies of the demoncrats and this fake administration, and they haven't helped or done anything for the American people for years! Mccarthy and McConnell are puppets to the demon party. What exactly do so-called republicans stand for? We know what MAGA stands for.
