Joe Biden and the Democrats are wildly unpopular.
It would probably take last-minute election law shenanigans to save them in the 2022 and 2024 election cycles.
But Republicans made a bold move to correct one 2020 election disaster.
Republicans were blindsided in 2020 by several Democrat moves before the election.
Democrats in swing states changed election laws at the last minute – in contravention of state constitutions – and had billionaire Mark Zuckerberg funnel $400 million into key election precincts.
Republicans have made strides to pass laws that return to pre-COVID “emergency” election guidelines, and now they’re taking aim at the antiquated Presidential debate process.
The Republican National Committee announced that they were withdrawing from the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) due to obvious liberal bias and nonsensical rules.
Fox News reported that “the RNC clarified that it is not moving away from the presidential debate format, but is rather objecting to the CPD’s control over the process. The CPD has organized presidential and vice presidential debates for more than 30 years. RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel made the announcement in a statement . . . The CPD has yet to respond to the RNC vote, and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) has confirmed to Fox News Digital that it will not be commenting on the move. The RNC telegraphed its departure from the CPD in January when it announced it would require Republican presidential candidates to agree not to appear in a CPD-organized debate.”
The 2020 Presidential debates were a complete disaster.
In the first debate, Chris Wallace – who left Fox News for CNN’s floundering streaming service CNN+ – was criticized by both the Left and Right for not reining in the debate and eventually teaming up with Joe Biden to argue with Donald Trump.
RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel wrote in a statement, “Debates are an important part of the democratic process, and the RNC is committed to free and fair debates . . . The Commission on Presidential Debates is biased and has refused to enact simple and commonsense reforms to help ensure fair debates including hosting debates before voting begins and selecting moderators who have never worked for candidates on the debate stage.”
The second debate, which was set to be about foreign policy, was canceled due to Trump contracting COVID.
But planned moderator Steve Scully of C-SPAN was suspended by the company for seeking advice about Trump from short-lived White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, then lying about it.
And Kristen Welker, Scully’s replacement, had deep ties to the Democrat Party – she and her family spent Christmas at the White House with the Obamas.
Even former Republican Presidential nominee Bob Dole came out publicly and criticized the CPD for being too biased against Trump.
It’s clear to see why McDaniel and the RNC chose to walk away from the CPD and seek a more balanced approach to the Presidential debates.
