Democrats have spent most of this year trying to make the midterm elections all about Donald Trump. They branded the GOP the “UltraMAGA” party and accused millions of Americans of being “threats” to democracy.
This type of strategy backfired last year during the off-year elections. And it doesn’t seem any amount of Trump hate will deter voters who have suffered under Biden’s failed presidency. But just as Americans prepared to flood the polls, Trump could have swung the elections with a big announcement.
From The Post Millennial:
During a rally on Monday for GOP Senate candidate for Ohio JD Vance, former President Donald Trump teased a “major announcement” to be made from Mar-A-Lago on November 15.
“We want nothing to detract from the importance of tomorrow,” Trump said.
The announcement comes as the former leader has teased on numerous occasions his intention to run for president in 2024, the frequency of which has only increased as the midterm election approaches.
The night before the 2022 Midterms, Donald Trump revealed he would make a “major announcement” on November 15th. Very few people think this will be anything other than his 2024 re-election announcement.
Millions of Americans have been waiting for Trump to make his plans known. Some of his closest advisors claimed it was all but certain. But Trump has only hinted at a possible comeback campaign.
Trump said he was waiting until November 15–so he wouldn’t “detract” from this week’s elections. But even hinting at this announcement, just a day before the elections, could have been a misstep.
While many are eager to see Trump return, Democrats have long used his polarizing antics to manipulate voters. Just at the 11th hour, when Republicans were poised to flip the country, Trump’s comment could spoil everything.
Democrats right now could be using this news to drum up last-minute support among liberal voters. Or, fears that Trump could announce a campaign could push poll workers or election officials over the edge.
We all remember what a mess 2020 was. The last thing we want is any upset that could spoil these midterms.
So, was Trump’s comment a strategic move to help the party? Or will it end up being a win for Democrats?
I guess we’ll find out soon enough.
- A night before the midterms, Trump said he would make a big announcement on Nov 15.
- He said he didn’t want to “detract” from the 2022 midterms.
- Democrats have tried to use Trump to manipulate voters into supporting their party.
