They're not convincing anyone new. All they do is scare away persuadable voters.
I actually don’t think they care about winning. The pundits will stay rich win or lose. They’ll dine with Trump and kneel at his alter and grow their following. If you’ve heard of Jesse Kelly, I used to listen to him until he exposed himself as a Matt Gaetz. He ran for office a couple times and said “we don’t care if we win, we just love the fight”. Love to scream loudly and grow a support base, not win and actually get anything done. I’d wager the majority of the right wing has become that and it’s deeply saddening to me as I used to look up to many of them. Now it’s clear most of them just say what the base wants to hear, nothing less
From what I have seen from the big release of the videos, there isn't nothing new and certainly no smoking gun that changes the reality of what happened. It was violent and a national disgrace. If there is a conspiracy, investigate why the Capital police didn't get the support when they needed it. I do have many questions about that.
Yes, politically damaging. Burn, rob, break and destroy as a Democrat- meh. J6 is hyperbole - A mess, and not a insurrection. Half the country has a problem with the voting system - period. Without voter confidence, there will be another cantankerous tour of the DC Country Club. Did somebody step on a duck ?
