AMAC Exclusive – By Daniel Berman

Raphael Warnock’s victory in Georgia on Tuesday in the U.S. Senate runoff election was expected by virtually everyone, from pollsters who almost bent over backwards to apologize that their models even showed a close race, to GOP donors and national groups who committed half-heartedly if at all to the race, allowing Warnock to outspend Herschel Walker by nearly 5-2, to leading GOP figures who seemed unsure whether a larger or smaller margin of defeat better served the interests of their respective factions in intraparty conflicts.

Election night jumbled a lot of talking points when for a brief period it appeared the race was too close to call. The final margin, 51.4% for Warnock and 48.6% for Walker, is causing equal confusion. It is not close enough to promote stories about a GOP comeback, or Democratic performances in November being a fluke, yet is not wide enough to fit the narrative of a hapless Walker campaign, saddled with a toxic candidate, in free-fall. This presents a bit of a problem for GOP strategists. If the result had been a blowout, they could have blamed the candidate, and implicitly Donald Trump, the man they insist forced Herschel Walker, a legend in Georgia, onto the 68% of GOP primary voters who backed him. In that case, their own actions or inaction would have been vindicated. “There was nothing we could do with such a candidate,” would be the common refrain. “No amount of money could have won this race… They tried their best. Kemp turned his entire operation, or at least its payroll, over to Mitch McConnell to support Walker and it was not enough!”

If, however, the race had been razor-thin, say 50.2% to 49.8%, then there would have been little doubt that despite the weakness of the candidate, being outspent nearly three to one probably made at least .2% of a difference. The decision of leading conservative and Republican media figures to write-off the race and move-onto recriminations before voting was over likely demoralized enough voters.

With the race ending somewhere in the middle of those two scenarios, there are some takeaways from Tuesday’s results that are important for the GOP moving forward.

Blaming Herschel Walker is an easy excuse

Was Herschel Walker a flawed candidate? Without a doubt. There is a reason, however, for the old saying, “victory has a thousand fathers, but defeat is an orphan.” Herschel Walker is being portrayed not as just a “flawed” candidate, but a hopelessly awful one who lacked any redeeming strengths, yet whose weaknesses were so apparent that only malice could explain overlooking them. This may help excuse other Republicans, in Georgia and nationally, of responsibility. But the myth that Donald Trump somehow forced Walker onto Georgia Republicans is nonsensical, as is the mythical strength of his leading mainstream primary rivals.

Walker, for all his flaws, was a living legend in Georgia, one of the most famous sports figures of his generation. That gave him appeal which could, if properly exploited, transcend partisan and ideological lines. Walker was not an unknown figure before Donald Trump endorsed him. He was by far the most famous of the potential candidates. His victory with nearly 70% of the primary vote was a testament to that. To suggest that 68% of GOP primary voters who cast ballots for Walker were simply demonstrating blind loyalty to Donald Trump is absurd. 73% of those same voters cast their ballots for Brian Kemp over Trump-endorsed former Senator David Perdue, while a majority also voted for Brad Raffensperger. Walker did have wide appeal, including to seemingly many non-Trump supporters at the time of the primary.

Walker’s current critics are revisionist in ignoring that a key reason for his easy victory was that while some reservations, albeit well-founded ones, were made about Walker’s inexperience and other flaws as a candidate, no real effort was made to sell any of the mainstream alternatives. Congressman Doug Collins had, like Mo Brooks in Alabama, a poor electoral record, and lost badly to Raffensperger, as did Perdue in the Governor’s race. While both would have been better advised to run for Senate, it is unclear how an inability to appeal to much more than a third of Republican primary voters would have translated into a winning general election message.

Perhaps if Brian Kemp had decided to run for Senate things may have been different, but he had no intention of doing so, and it is likely that Raffensperger or another state officeholder would have made the primary into a divisive battle over 2020 if they had tried to run.

For structural reasons, there was a choice between boring, generic Republican politicians with many of Walker’s issues, and Walker, who at least potentially countered them with celebrity. Endorsing Walker was not an impulsive decision by the former president; it was, rather, the most logical choice given the options available.

The GOP allowed the narrative of a flawed candidate to become entrenched

By the time of the runoff, a narrative had taken root that not only was Walker a flawed candidate, but his opponent, Raphael Warnock, was some sort of political juggernaut who was charismatic, and had wide crossover appeal. There was even discussion of Warnock as part of a future national Democratic ticket.

How, precisely, this narrative took root is a tale of the utmost negligence on the party of the GOP at all levels. Warnock has a highly problematic history, with many of the same issues with alleged domestic violence that were used with such effect to discredit Walker. Warnock allegedly ran over his ex-wife’s foot with his car after an argument over whether Warnock would allow his wife to apply for a passport – an incident that occurred not in the past but while he was running for Senate in 2020. Warnock was also arrested in 2002 for allegedly obstructing a child abuse probe into a summer camp. No wonder his wife called him a “great actor” in police footage.

This leaves aside that Warnock has largely been a down-the-line liberal vote, even voting to abolish the filibuster. Yet despite efforts by Walker to promote these stories in ads, they failed to resonate or influence the narrative.

A large part of the reason for this is that it was Walker who was left pushing these stories in his own campaign ads. This made them suspect in the same way that if Warnock’s campaign had been the one bringing forward accusations of Walker soliciting abortions in attack ads, the effect would have been to cast doubt on the charges and the man whose campaign was making them.

The most effective framing of Walker was done not by Warnock, but by the media and insiders on both sides. When it was not just MSNBC or the mainstream media which was pushing a narrative that the race was between a “scandal plagued, mentally ill” Republican and a charismatic Democratic pastor, but also Republican strategists and aides, then it became the narrative. The race became a “test” of whether Republicans would vote for Walker “despite all his problems” and not whether Democrats would vote for Warnock despite his. Take as an example the New York Times story entitled “A Pastor and Politician Who Sees Voting as a Form of Prayer.” Real credit is due to Warnock’s press team for this type of coverage. Celebrities pay millions for this sort of image management.

As much as the lack of financial support hurt Walker, the lack of narrative support played the decisive role in the contest. Unlike Blake Masters in Arizona or J.D. Vance in Ohio, Walker had no history of extreme political positions, or really any positions at all. Nor did he adopt any during the campaign.

Georgia is trending left, but more slowly than assumed

While it is hard to account fully for uncontested races, as of this moment, Republicans lead the popular vote for the U.S. House 50.6% to 47.8% or a margin of 2.8%. In November, Republicans won the aggregated vote for U.S. House in Georgia 52.3% to 47.7%, or about 4.6%. None of the 14 districts was seriously contested by the other party in the general election, so it can function as a reasonable floor for both. What is striking is how similar that total was to the results in 2018.

Year Georgia House Vote National House Vote Difference
2018 52.27%-47.73% R 53.4%-44.8% D R+6.2%
2020 51%-49% R 50.8%-47.7% D R+2.6%
2022 52.31%-47.69% R 50.6%-47.8% R R+1.6%

Three things stand out. First, the 2018 and 2022 results in Georgia are almost identical. Second, the GOP won the popular vote in all three years, which does indicate the Senate race was an outlier, albeit not a huge one. Thirdly, Georgia is moving leftward such that even a better GOP year in 2022 could barely keep up.

There was a lot of talk after 2016 that the confident predictions about “demographics being destiny” made after the 2012 election, whether by Democrats or the GOP in its autopsy, were proven wrong. The idea that those specific trends were static was indeed proven incorrect. However, the general movement of U.S. politics towards polarization is real. Georgia provided a microcosm of that phenomenon this year.

Even with several factors trending against the GOP, however, Georgia still did not shift it that much. Walker still received 48.6% of the vote. However, if that is a floor, Democrats are likely to have a similar floor in future statewide contests.

The problem in Georgia is that the groups and areas Walker won are casting less votes relative to the rest of the state than they did a few years ago, while those that voted for Warnock cast more. Georgia is not quite at the level where it leans Democratic by any means. The above chart still shows the state voting around 1.6% more Republican than the nation at large on average in House races. But that trend has also slowed somewhat in recent years. Georgia is not likely to be a “blue state” in terms of voting to the left of the nation in 2024, but it may well only vote 1% to the right of the nation, which would have been enough for Hillary Clinton to win it in 2016.

We are still stuck with 2016 coalitions

The Georgia runoff is interesting in respect to what didn’t happen. Warnock did not make inroads with rural whites, especially in North Georgia where Marjorie Taylor Greene had underperformed in November. He did not reverse trends in rural African American counties, where there has been a steady erosion of Democratic support. He won the places and people he won in November, and in those areas slightly more voters turned out. The major trends of the global realignment, in which education and age are key drivers of voter preference, are supported by this result.

In short, the country is on the same trajectory it has been on since 2016. We have now had four elections in which great expectations were instilled. In 2018, Democrats failed to win Florida, Iowa, and Ohio “back.” In 2022 a “red wave” did not reach Oregon and Washington. Instead, we have had four versions of the 2016 election, each with candidates, events, and issue patterns which favored one party or another. While these affected turnouts, it was ultimately the same dynamics at play in each election.

This does not mean that one party cannot have a better year than another. Democrats had a better year in 2018 than they did 2020, and the GOP had a better 2016 than 2022 (or 2018), but ultimately 2018 was a much better version of 2016 for Democrats. The shock in 2022 came from how similar it was to 2020 outside of a few large states such as California, Florida, and New York. Even in those states, the outcomes did not change, merely the margins.

This has implications for discussion about 2024. The discourse about whether Donald Trump should run again, and if not, who should replace him, contains a universe of possibilities that does not seem supported by data. Some candidates are likely to perform better than others, some will have much greater funding, and run more disciplined operations. Ultimately, it is likely that whatever Republican is running is going to have to try to win with the 2020 coalition. No Democrat, Biden or otherwise, is likely to try and win the 2012 election a second time by focusing on Iowa and Ohio.

The GOP can win in 2024. But the party must first figure out how to win the 2020 and 2022 elections, on those maps, and with those coalitions. That is the message Georgia reinforced.

Native Americans have an old saying that goes something like this: “When you’re riding a dead horse, the best thing to do is to get off.”

Unfortunately, our inclination is either to buy more feed to see that will revive the dead horse or to study the dead horse so that we can replace it with a similar dead horse.

Unless, of course, there was fraud involved. Sheesh! Did Warnock win? Maybe. Was there cheating? Most likely. Enough to tip the scale? We’ll see. But before we dissect what the GOP did wrong, let’s first determine, without a shadow of a doubt, that election integrity exists.

McConnel needs to be replaced. If the GOP had helped Walker out there could have been a different outcome, not just in this race but in multiple ones. I do believe that there is a huge amount of corruption in most elections. I no longer believe that my vote counts any more than a hill of beans. jmho

This is the unfortunate story of the Georgia voter voting against their own interest. In 2020 they sent2 Democrats to the Senate to give control of the Senate to Biden and Schumer. The Senate immediately voted to send money ( disproportionately) to the Northeast and the West coast regarding Democrat strongholds . Georgia was hurt but since the voters of Georgia had put Schumer in control they continued to be blissfully ignorant. Their 2022 Senate selection is not about Walker. Georgia voters must like the Biden Schumer agenda. Californians and NewYorkerscertainly appreciate their support for a liberal agenda that benefits their state at the expense of Georgia taxpayers.

Democrats have focused most of their attention and efforts on congressional and presidential races over the last dozen years, because control of the federal government allows the Democrats to set national policy, control money to states and all fedreral programs and generally set the agenda for the country from a centralized source. That being Congress and the White House. It puts them in a position to essentially execute national policy and puts state and local governments on the defensive. Local wins are nice for Democrats, but the real prize is control at the national level. That has been especially reflective since the elections of 2020, 2021 and now 2022. Where almost all activity by the Democrats has been focused on ensuring wins in Congress and the White House.

One of the things not explicitly mentioned is the Democrats spent $150 million dollars on Warnock to get him across the finish line. Which is substantially more than a typical congressional race ever costs. That is how important and focused the Democrat Party was on ensuring a win. Walker’s total war chest by comparison was reportedly only $25 million dollars. One would certainly like to ask Mitch McConnell, who was sitting on more than $250 million dollars in campaign funds this election cycle, how much, if any, was used to secure a supposedly crucial GOP Senate seat from Georgia. The same vould be asked of the RNC as well. Notice how quiet the RNC has been after the election. McConnell certainly didn’t spend much of it on any other Trump backed Senate candidates, so one has to wonder if Mitch really wanted the GOP to re-take the Senate, if it meant he likely wouldn’t be their GOP Senate leader again. So now we have the outcome one would expect from a race where one candidate has significantly more campaign dollars than the other…yet again.

By the way, before everyone jumps on the bandwagin and says Walker lost because he was a terrible candidate, lets take an objective look at Lee Zeldin who everyone in the GOP is currently treating as a rock star despite he lost his bid for Governor in New York State to Kathy Hochul essentailly for the exact same reason. He was also substantially out spent by a wide margin in a state that favors Democrats. For every 1 TV or radio ad that was Lee Zeldin’s, Kathy Hochul had on 5 or 6. The Democrats carpet bomb the media with their ads, so guess who the generally uniformed voters tend to vote for? The person whose name sticks in their heads. Most people have no real clue what the candidates stand for regarding policy in a lot of instances. They vote on name recognition or just voting (D) or (R).

Money is absolutely crucial in modern politics, as TV, radio and other mediums, like the Internet via Google, Facebook, etc. are where at least 95 percent of the American public gets ALL their news from and where their opinions are shaped given the dismal state of what is left of the American print media in this country. We may not like it, but that is reality. Can we put up better candidates? Sure, but without sufficiant money backing them to not only match, but significantly exceed what the Democrats are pouring into national races to control national policy, the outcome will largely remain the same. You can’t have people like McConnell and McCarthy sitting on a combined $500 million dollars in campaign funds, along with another couple of hundred million at the RNC deciding on which candidates gets funded or starved for funds based on who will support the status quo in Washington.

What they must learn? YOU CAN NOT WIN A RIGGED ELECTION! Vote fraud is TREASON and must be treated as such and carry the death penalty! No more mail in voting, no more endless days to vote, no vote harvesting, no unexplained ballot dumps in the middle of the night! Observers from both parties must be present during all operations, a picture ID must be required,

As an insurgency organizes and grows throughout America and in the wake of yet another decidedly inferior RNC driven election outcome; the RNC yet again finds itself in the “paralysis by analysis” mode.

Enough of incessant whining, nasty donation solicitations and passivity.

Organizational leadership, action and accountability starts at the top.

The insurgency clock is ticking loudly. A change in RNC leadership is now a National and Homeland Security imperative.

Consider this. Warnock got roughly 129,000 less votes than he did the first time. Walker got roughly 189,000 less votes than he did the first time. Apparent apathy on both sides due to less at stake. But if everyone that voted for Walker the first time voted in the runoff he would have won.
And if everyone that voted for Kemp had voted for Walker in November, Walker would have won. Walker was not a great candidate, he is a well thought of celebrity.
What the results tell me is that Warnock was beatable, just needed a better candidate. My opinion, Trump should have kept his nose out of this.

I was a Political Science major in college and the general public doesn’t pay that much attention to politics unfortunately. The incumbent always has the advantage but beyond that, the general public who vote vote for the last person they see or hear before going to the polls. And the media was strongly supporting the Democrats as we know together with the amount of money spent to promote him.

Warnock would not even have been in office if “RAFFY” hadn’t signed in 2020 an agreement with gap-tooth to allow mail-in ballots not to be verified against the voters’ original signatures. Matching the signatures on the ballot with the envelope DOES NOT PROVE that the real voter cast it! If you assume someone’s ID you are not going to be stupid enough to use 2 different people to sign in!
Add to that the extra millions pumped in by CA Dimms which allowed Warnock to run thousands of attack ads while the media conveniently neglects Warnock’s running over his wife’s foot, throwing people out of their homes for owing as little as $50, and his FAKE Christian persona that encourages the murder of babies!

Wake up America! The majority of voters are voting for the Democrats and supporting the lies and destruction of America. More of us need to fight against what is happening in education. Yes, I am discouraged as most of the people I see are non-thinkers. If they do vote, they respond to the sound bites presented in the media. Maybe if we get ALL the state election systems using ID’s and paper ballots, there is a chance change can happen. Bring GOD back into our society!

Warnock is a phony pastor. He is for abortion, steals money from his church while throwing out on the streets those who are truly poor. I would put him where Obama’s pastor from Illinois ranks. He is an utter scoundrel or wolf in sheeps clothes!!!
Herschel Walker is a sincere Christian who is pro-life, marriage is one man and one woman. He paid whatever Warnock’s poor members couldn’t so they were not thrown out on the streets. There was never a more stark contrast in candidates than Warnock and Walker. The difference between wickedness and sincerely kind in words and deeds!!!

One problem with our system is that the prize usually goes to the highest bidder. The rich can buy the election because the left has been working for years to dumb down the electorate. This makes it easy for the ones who can buy the most ads. Now they want to reduce the voting age to 16. More dumb down.

If I lived in Georgia, I would have voted for Walker…holding my nose. Until The GOP can find candidates who are less flawed or until unknowns come forward with great ideas that deserve wider recognition, we must stick together and vote for Republican candidates if this country wants to have a future rooted in freedom.

Someone needs to tell McConnell, McCarthy, and McDaniel that they need to loosen the purse strings to make this happen, regardless of personal feelings about candidates. Therein lies the difference between R’s and D’s. D’s always stick together (herd mentality, heavy funding), while R’s think independently (withhold funding and lose races). You could even say we cause these divisions among ourselves, making the rift even wider by stubbornly sticking with “my guy” instead of supporting the best candidate with the greatest appeal to the most voters. Yes, that is the primary process…we voters have spoken…but the nominee must be better funded. Since Walker was only 2.8% behind Warnock in the run-off, imagine what might have happened if he had funding equal to Warnock’s.

Not losing Senate seats in a president’s first midterm hasn’t happened in several decades (heard on the radio). And yet, this happened with a president as bad and as corrupt as biden!

That’s what worries me about Donald Trump running again in 2024. Because an uncomfortable margin of people, including R’s, will not vote for him because of his demeanor, what hope do we have of winning the election? If he wins the nomination, of course I’ll vote for him. If DeSantis runs against Trump in the primary, we could see a very interesting turn of sentiment. Whoever wins the nomination, we have to support him or her. 100%. But I don’t see significant change with the 3 Mc’s in charge.

Good Breakdown Article.

My wife and I live in NE Georgia and have Comcast for TV, Internet, land line, mobile phones, everything. Other cable provider alternatives have very limited service areas.

Everything we frequent electronically, Warnock’s handlers were ALWAYS attacking Herschel personally during commercial segments, interrupting our internet articles, our mobile phones, calling and texting incessantly on all our phones, etc. for the last four to five months and then it got worse just before the elections, and of course, the run-offs.

Warnock’s personal issues did not even begin showing up until two weeks ago and even then, it was only sparingly.

I heard today that Warnock’s investors outspent Walker by $100M. The Dem Communists bought the office by less than 3%. Most of the money came from out of the state of Georgia. Tragic. The people of Georgia & the rest of America now have another Biden Bootlicker. If you consider this a fair election, the people of Georgia got what they deserve, but the rest of America didn’t. So, what if the Republicans slightly own the House, of concern is how many of their members are RINOS. Without the Senate, and a corrupt JB President, the Conservatives are no more than a lame duck. Unfortunate for the rest of America. To make things fair, shouldn’t there be a financial limit for all political office runoffs? Put the 85K new IRS agents to work! So, who is buying & running our Great Country? Surely, it is the Legal American citizens. We are a country of corrupt and no representation. Hard to be optimistic with a corrupt government.

I am a right-leaning independent immigrant living in the Great Swing State of GA. I voted to re-elect Gov. Brian Kemp as he is a moderate Republican. But I voted against Herschel Walker who was obviously a terrible candidate and an embarrassment to both the party and our state.

I also voted for Trump in 2020 but I became a never again Trumper after J6. If that dumb Trump behaved in a more rational manner, I would entertain the possibility of voting for him again in 24. But he never plans too far ahead. He is no chess player – he is a bad checker player at best who plans only half a move ahead.

Long story short, Republicans need to move away from Trump, trumpism and radical messaging to win over Independents’ voices. Peace,
