Word. While I agree with most of what Kyle said, I believe there is an unfortunately large amount of voters who don't look into what a candidate is running on and instead base their vote on the group think extremists as brought to them by their news media of choice and social network echo chamber. It happens on both sides, but is made most obvious by the hysterical Trump supporters on his loss to Biden. The Democrats probably couldn't find a more slightly right of center candidate and yet there's still no shortage of Trump supporters wailing on about how he's a communist who wants to kill babies in the womb and throw open the borders. And this was the main event election. You think they are even going to bother researching down ballot candidates? I'll answer. No.
It was interesting to find out that every candidate that ran on Medicare for all won. I'm sure no politician from either side is going to mention that.
