Tool of the Week: Blue Wavers

Empower Wisconsin | Nov. 9, 2020

MADISON — The left for years has been promising to crush Donald Trump and Republicans under a “blue wave” come Election Day.

The wave never arrived.

In the presidential contest, razor thin margins separated President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden in some of the fiercest fought battleground states. Wisconsin’s unofficial tally has Biden winning by some 20,000 votes.

It appears that, despite predictions of a blue revolution, Republicans will hold on to their majority in the U.S. Senate — a critical check on the radical left’s socialist plans for a Biden administration.

And Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi claimed victory in defeat, with Republicans picking up seats even as it appears Democrats will keep control of the House.

In Wisconsin, Democrats and their liberal allies blew millions of dollars in the belief that they could severely erode solid Republican majorities in the Legislature. They failed.

A review by the left-leaning Wisconsin Democracy Campaign  found liberal outside groups outspent conservative issue advocacy organizations by nearly 2 to 1 —  $5.3 million to just under $2.9 million.

Democrats picked up two assembly seats in traditional conservative strongholds, but lost two seats in the state senate.

Feeling cocky and misreading the strength of their COVID-19 AND REPUBLICANS WILL KILL US ALL message, they spent nearly $1 million trying to knock off Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester.) Vos won handily.

The blue wave was a bust.

More so it was a wholesale rejection of the kind of far left policies Biden and his running mate, U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) campaigned on.

“…(T)he closer we inspect the nationwide election returns, the more the result looks like a defeat for the rest of his Democratic Party and especially for the progressive agenda. Mr. Biden would take office without a mandate beyond addressing COVID-19 and not being Donald J. Trump,” the Wall Street Journal opined.

Those who predicted a Democratic-socialist trouncing now look like huge tools.

They are.

Collectively, they are Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.
