  1. Negative Partisanship. Article/Podcast by Rachel Bitecofer.

    I first learned about Way to Win when they published an analysis after the 2020 cycle empirically demonstrating the weakness of the Democratic Party’s messaging strategy against the GOP’s in the 2020 cycle. 

    While Republican’s focused on branding Democrats as dangerous socialists intent on destroying America, Democrats were branding Republicans as good friends they just couldn’t wait to work with it! 

    The poll-tested value of telling swing voters how great the other party is and how much you can’t wait to work with them is pretty high, but the electoral viability of such a strategy is low, very low.

    In 2020, Democrats running on bipartisanship underperformed in “down ballot” elections losing 13 seats in the House and dropping winnable senate races in North Carolina and Maine that would have given Democrat’s the power to reform the filibuster. 

    So, heading into 2022, I was hyper-focused on getting Democrats to understand that because most Americans don’t follow the news, especially not political news, if you want them to know the Republican Party has collapsed into a dangerous cult that’s coming after their health, wealth, and freedom, you damn well better tell them yourself!

  2. Tee hee! The Colorado GOP Twitter account criticized Sen. Kirkmeyer for voting in favor of the 2023 budget bill (y'know, passing a budget is sorta something a legislature has to do), and here's her response:

    Dave- speaking of budgets, I’d like to see the the State GOP budget. Where can I find it? I’d also like to receive a copy of year to date expenditures and revenues. So I can see what else you’ve been up too. (or not)
