The Democrats had every advantage to form a blue wave. They had history on their side. The party of the president invariably loses seats during the midterms. Often a large amount.
And this time it came in two forms – actual fraudulent voting and voter suppression.
Voter suppression is defined as “a strategy to influence the outcome of an election by discouraging or preventing specific groups of people from voting.”
Most point to the obvious examples of voter suppression, where would-be voters are intimidated, in some fashion, from entering the polling place.
But the left, the Dems and their media lapdogs had a different strategy. They have, from the start of the midterm election season, been on a concentrated campaign of Republican voter suppression, by hyping the phony “Blue Wave” narrative.
The constant talk of the Blue Wave was designed to discourage Republicans from venturing out to the polls. Why bother voting if the Democrats were going to sweep anyway?
However, despite their best efforts, the inevitable Blue Wave turned out to be more of a blue ripple.
