Bremer: Voters Now Realize It Was Just Trump's 'Tone of Voice' That Bugged Them

  • 5 Comments
  • by: Jason Salzman

(Yeah, THAT was the problem — promoted by Colorado Pols)

A leading Colorado U.S. Senate candidate hopped on the radio last week and basically told Colorado’s swing voters they don’t care about climate change, preserving Obamacare, abortion rights, gun safety, democracy, immigration reform, courts… .

Eli Bremer, a former Olympian who’s running (first) to win the Republican primary and (second) to unseat U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO), made these comments on right-wing radio as part of his minefield-laden campaign in which he has to look as if he likes Trump (to win over Republicans) without embracing Trump (to keep almost everyone else in Colorado from running away from him later).

Bremer thinks last week’s election results, both in Virginia and in Colorado, illuminated a path forward for him.

According to Bremer, Voters disliked Trump’s “tone of voice” so much last year that they forgot about how much they liked his policies.

“I think that there are a lot of people who didn’t like Donald Trump’s tone of voice, and they didn’t vote based on policies in the last election,” Bremer told KNUS’ Peter Boyles Nov. 3. “They voted based on personalities, and now they’re having some serious voter regret. And if Republicans capitalize on this in 2022, if we talk about policies, our policies work. Mayors are a dumpster fire train wreck. And if we can keep it on those policies and go and make it about our policies, we’re going to sweep the next election.”

In other words, get over the shallow personality problems, Bremer says. What you didn’t like about Trump was his snotty voice.

Did Colorado’s unaffiliated voters — who are in charge when it comes to elections here — really not understand what Trump stood for, policy-wise?

He tried to kill Obamacare. He torpedoed all immigration reform, even for DREAMers. He basically denied climate change, set us on a path to criminalizing abortion in many states, mocked the justice system and journalism, and may have ended democracy as we know it by spreading conspiracies about the election.

No doubt, Trump himself drove left-leaning voters to the polls in 2020. If Trump were to disappear, Democrats would likely have a tougher road ahead.

But he won’t disappear, and even if he did, check out any poll of Colorado’s unaffiliated voters and you see (mostly) that the policies of the Trump Republicans are mostly hated.

Yet, Bremer says (repeated for emphasis):

“I think that there are a lot of people who didn’t like Donald Trump’s tone of voice and they didn’t vote based on policies in the last election. They voted based on personalities, and now they’re having some serious voter regret.”

You feel for Bremer who’s got a thankless primary ahead of him, and maybe he could pull this off in some other state. But not in Colorado.

  1. Run on GOP policies:

    Tax cuts for the rich

    Support Global Warming

    Voter Suppression

    Keep Covid-19 Strong

    Keep the women barefoot, pregnant, and in the kitchen.

    Support traditional values toward uppity minorities.

     

    What have I left out?

     

    1. Well, the whole "Judges" thing is probably a big part of some of those, but it also extends to corporations not being bothered by that whole "worker safety" thing.

  2. Put me down as disliking Bremer’s tone of voice,  . . .

    (which, — OK — I’ve never actually heard, but I know what I like, and I know I don’t like his snotty tone) 

    . . . and his shithole policies.

    By the way, did Bremer just imply, in that very nasty tone of his, that Ttump not only sounds dislikable, but that he also lost the last election??? Say it again, Eli, once more, but this time try and say it in a slightly more likable tone of voice? . . .

    This guy just may be the dumbest smart-guy I never met.

     

    1. Imagine, if you will, the sanctuary of never being discriminated against, never incarcerated unfairly, best seats, best eats, purchasing the highest and best, buying exclusivity and a daily plate of entitlement…and still unhappy enough to be a world class hater? 

      It’s not his tone.
