This is not by happenstance. As of now, “cancel culture” is the GOP’s issue for the 2022 midterms. Indeed, former Trump White House aide Mercedes Schlapp told Politico this about how important the “cancel culture” issue is for the GOP’s 2022 strategy: “At the end of the day I think it unifies the party but expands it into the area we need to — the suburban moms, the college educated men that we struggled with in 2020, there’s common ground with these constituencies.”
You get it: Whatever the GOP doesn’t like, their elected officials try to cancel. That’s why the Democrats should use this issue to hammer Republicans on everything from their efforts to “cancel” the popular Covid-19 relief bill to canceling our democracy. By using this issue effectively, Democrats should be able to “cancel” a bunch of Republican candidates come the 2022 election.
