MEGHAN MCCAIN: Too many Republicans lost in an unlosable election thanks to Trump’s suck-up duds

What the hell happened last night? The long-awaited ‘red wave’ turned into a pale pink ripple… at best.

The nation is still waiting for all the election results, but enough has happened to understand why so many Republicans wake up this morning indignant and confused.

According to the exit polls, President Biden’s favorable assessment is under water, a majority of voters are angry and dissatisfied with the country’s direction, and more voters believe Biden’s policies harm them rather than help them.

We have the highest inflation in decades. Crime is everywhere. The southern border is a lawless mess, and the American public is less optimistic about the future than we have seen in the modern age.

Biden’s presidency, to say the least, is not going well.

There was an expectation among Republicans, as well as many Democrats, that any polls exposing Americans’ fears and frustrations would translate into massive GOP wins.

That just didn’t happen.

Predictions before last night were that Republicans would take anywhere from 20-35 seats in the House and potentially take control of the U.S. Senate in a historic wave election that rivaled the Republican Revolution in 1994 and President Obama’s mid-term beating in the United States. 2010 was inflicted.

Too many Republicans lost in an unlosable election last night, and they have no one to blame but themselves.

Experts, analysts and pollsters have been speculating about this for months.

But this morning, Republicans are fighting it to the end and a GOP House majority, while still likely, isn’t even sure.

Congressman Kevin McCarthy’s future as Speaker of the House, once thought to be guaranteed, is now officially in the game.

The “red wave” was a mirage and nothing of the “historic victory” Republicans had expected. Nothing.

This will go down as a giant warning sign and hopefully a compelling argument against the delusion that President Donald Trump is the future of the GOP.

Too many Republicans lost in an unlosable election last night, and they have no one to blame but themselves.

Trump’s influence in selecting and approving candidates is undeniable. And those candidates have not delivered.

Senate candidates such as Trump-backed Dr. Mehmet Oz fell for John Fetterman, who delivered one of the most stunning debate performances in American history.

dr. Oz chatted with Trump early on and embraced the MAGA platform. He eventually lost to a man still recovering from a near-fatal stroke about whom there are serious questions about his suitability for office.

In fact, almost every major MAGA candidate and Trump disciple has lost or is at risk of losing, with the exception of JD Vance in the Ohio Senate race.

In Arizona, Democrat Mark Kelly is currently leading against the Trump-approved Blake Masters.

In New Hampshire, Democrat Maggie Hassan defeated conspiracy-shooting Don Boluc.

Any results in Georgia are still unclear, but Trump-backed Senate candidate Hershel Walker follows Democrat Rapheal Warnock, while Republican Governor Brian Kemp, who was insulted and belittled by Trump, sailed to an easy victory.

A simple and easy conclusion can be drawn from this.

Trump’s MAGA is cancer and it’s destroying my party. And this should be the last nail in his coffin.

President Trump is not a kingmaker, in fact he is the opposite. He seems to have a knack for picking losing candidates.

That may be because for Trump, the narcissist, it’s more important that candidates suck at him, kiss his ring, and vomit his topics of conversation, rather than running heartfelt campaigns that authentically connect with voters.

There is, of course, a glimmer of hope coming from this night of disappointment. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis took a clean win and he took it big last night.

Our election process is his vanity project and the Republican primary voters were happy and willing to please him. But in general elections, it’s a different story.

There is, of course, a glimmer of hope coming from this night of disappointment.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis took a clean win and he took it big last night.

He walked on his palmares, policy issues and the culture war.

He ruled his state so effectively during the Covid years that Florida became something of a safe haven for Americans sick of draconian lockdowns and the absurdity of waking up in school and in our culture.

Last night, DeSantis flipped the historically Democratic Miami-Dade county from blue to red for the first time in decades.

Miami-Dade hasn’t voted for a Republican governor since 2002 or a Republican since 1988.

Its appeal to Spanish voters is undeniable. He obtained about 65% of the vote in the majority of Spanish districts, which is 16 percentage points better than he performed just 4 years ago.

It has poured rocket fuel over its presidential ambitions.

But as of Wednesday morning, President Trump is just days away from an expected announcement of his third run for the White House.

We see two clear paths before us. One leads to success and the other to failure for the GOP.

It’s a very clear and easy decision, but never underestimate the Republican Party’s ability to screw things up.

The GOP is not a Trump cult. The party must give voters what they want and they have made that clear.

Any results in Georgia are still unclear, but Trump-backed Senate candidate Hershel Walker follows Democrat Rapheal Warnock, while Republican Governor Brian Kemp (above), who was insulted and belittled by Trump, sailed to an easy victory.

Along with President Trump, every person in the Republican leadership who made this embarrassing interim loss possible must be held accountable, and that includes Senator Mitch McConnell and Congressman Kevin McCarthy.

Too often they look the other way, only taking cues from Trump and driving people, like Congresswoman Liz Cheney, from her role in leadership.

Not having different opinions in the caucus alienates voters. And now we see the result.

The Republican Party has a choice this morning.

Stay in the Trump cult and continue to underperform or support serious candidates who care about policy issues, solve real problems and, most importantly, win.

To put it in jargon that Trump-land can understand: they are a bunch of losers.

I hope we can straighten the ship before it’s too late – and I hope the ship is piloted by Ron DeSantis
