1. It didn't help

I won't say it hurt, but it certainly didn't help.

6. Yes and the lack of push back on that.

They concentrated too much on Trump and not knocking down the CRT issue. Dems have to understand the electorate is not as smart as they think.

15. But since they're not so smart, how do we push back on it? Facts won't do it.

These morons who show up and raise hell at the local school board meetings can't even define it, they just know "they's agin' it!"

16. Very simply by calling out the lies and why they are lies

It is not being taught in schools and there are no plans to.I am not a PR person, but simply looking at it from a Canadian perspective and it was not called out as the lie it is. They don't know what it even is, and it is not to teach them the facts about it but call out the lies and how they are using lies to divide the people. I don't think it would be hard but to dismiss and deflect to "Trump" because he is bad, is not a winning strategy. I cannot wrap my head around why people are so ignorant to facts but they are and the dems need to find a way through itl

4. Any? Sure.

But nothing significant. If we lost by 5,000 votes it might be worth talking about.

Now... was there ever any chance that it could have helped (like the LP guy saying that he was teaching us how to win elections)? No... that's nonsense.

10. I can't see that executing it well would have helped in the bigger picture

It just wasn't an effective strategy to tie Youngkin to Trump when he's gone and we had control of both state and federal government.

12. Showing up wearing LP t-shirts to ID themselves ...

And then holding SIGNS ... with a torches drawn on the signs ... IMHO, that would have been far better execution, just as an example.

8. Probably not, but it was stupid and counter-productive.

If you give them even an inch on the "false flag" narrative, they will take it a light-year.

9. Probably not that much.

That said. I recommend: Stop giving them attention and stop giving them money.

I unfollowed them on social media months ago.

Never trust a Republican. Never.

This was one of the top reasons Youngkin won.
