-Trumpism is a viable electoral strategy
-The polls were horrifically wrong, worse than 2016 by a lot. Don’t pay much attention to them next time.
-The “shy republican” vote was real
-Biden’s mandate is to not be Donald Trump. If he can govern respectfully and moderately he will be popular. If he tries to go far left, he will fail.
-The “demographics is destiny” argument that democrats liked to make is dangerously wrong and extraordinarily toxic. I freely admit I believed in it and supported some pretty nasty things as a consequence
-“It’s my or the left” worked for almost every Republican in a close race and almost worked for Donald Trump himself. It’s going to work in every close race in 2022 and 2024 if Biden doesn’t temper the more violent and anti civilizational undercurrents on the left.
-Susan Collins is an unbeatable political goddess
