I/m farirly convinced – amost to the point of making up a new Berg’s Law – that the Democrat messaging strategy is as follows:
- Assume that Democrat voters (as opposed to participants in their political class) are low-information voters who don’t really think all that critically
- Message accordingly.
Well, no – doing the job one is elected to do, after winning the election, while not fundamentally changing the institution, is not “packing the court”.
But Democrats – up to and including Biden and Harris at the debats – seem to be counting on Democrat voters not knowing this.
HowPoll tests got a bad name – deservedly so – during the Jim Crow era. And it’s kind of a shame, because more and more, I think some sort of test indicating at least a minimal knowledge of the parts of our government, to say nothing of knowing what they do and why they check and balance each other, would be a very good thing.
