Midterms Could Cement GOP's Status as Populist, Working Class Party

(Newsmax)

By    |   Thursday, 13 October 2022 07:28 AM EDT

The GOP's Trump-driven transformation into a populist party representing the working class could reach a tipping point in the looming midterm elections – but Republicans may ultimately have Democrats to thank for helping to hasten that metamorphosis.

Democrats and groups aligned with them spent more than $53 million during the most recent primary cycle in a widespread gamble to boost numerous populist Republican challengers against more moderate or establishment GOP candidates in nine key states. The plan to prop up the so-called "fringe" GOP candidates hinged on a belief that when the general electorate was presented with a choice between a traditional Democrat and purportedly far-right Republicans, the Democrat would triumph easily.
