Our incredibly anti-democratic/anti-majoritarian political system helps keep the GOP alive. https://garrettsnedaker.medium.com/our-unrepresentative-anti-democracy-ffadaec9abdf
Republicans don’t even really try to sell the public on right wing policy positions. They just scream about guns, transgender bathrooms and socialism. Even with our screwed up political system, the GOP would cease to be viable if racism and sexism weren’t so rampant. 50+ years of increasingly cruel, unhinged rhetoric and policy has created a monster. The Republican Party base is delusional beyond measure. They constitute an extremely vocal minority that’s convinced they’re the silent majority.
