Yeah, I meant 28 years. Though it’s true Bush won the popular vote in 2004, that’s not necessarily due to America having a sudden Republican swing. Bush’s 9⁄11 response picked up more new allies than new enemies- especially among white mothers. It’s possible President Gore would have won by the same virtue, assuming he went the Bush direction on national security.
I personally doubt the dems could hold the Presidency for 28 years straight, somebody would have fumbled badly enough at some point, but the fact that the Republicans struggle this much to win the popular vote tells us that they are in no way a ‘silent majority’. The real silent majority seems to be the waves of urban, poor, and younger voters who showed up to beat Trump, not support the dems. Let’s make Trump the last Republican President!
