The Concern Is Strong Today

Everyone knew the GOP and their online allies weren't just going to give up, right? The point of the Barrett hearings is not just to install her on the Court; it's to rally their base and demoralize Democrats.

So it's no surprise that a quick survey of the board threads in the last few hours, on the opening day of the Barrett hearings, reveals loooooads of horserace stories, focus on one bad Senate poll (which even the most rudimentary analysis shows isn't credible or even that bad), and anecdotes about Dems in Disarray!! Oh noes!!

This is, of course, part of a coordinated effort to dismay and deter, and to generate polls that show a "tightening" race. It isn't going to work.

This is not 2016. It's a completely different race. The vast majority of people see the Barrett Rush for what it is. And Democrats are doing well; just as well as they were a week ago. In fact, probably better.

Vote. Donate to races if you can (that aren't oversaturated). Sign up for phone banking or texting or some other means of volunteering. Clear your head. Do something! They can't win unless we cooperate.
