History has a tendency to repeat itself. That was the case on Tuesday when voters again rejected the ruling party, but not by the margins that some predictors had anticipated.

Repudiation victories have become one of the most distinctive patterns of modern American politics. Understandably, Republicans expected to celebrate some resounding victories this round.

Even if they aren’t, that doesn’t mean voters have validated the left’s policies or government savvy. The question now is will the GOP learn the lessons of the medium term and turn things around in 2024?

Based on my experience of founding and leading many right-wing organizations, the first step to achieving any measure of political or political success is to actually listen to the people you are trying to help.

In the week leading up to the election, polls showed Americans worried about pocketbook issues, especially record inflation. It hit all demographics, including the coveted suburban women’s vote. Talk to people at any gas station or grocery store across the country, and they’ll tell you how they prepay $5, $10, or $15 at the pump because that’s all they can afford. They are cutting back on groceries to be able to pay their rent.

Americans are also concerned about what is happening in their neighborhoods and schools. Violence and lawlessness have spread to all facets of society, but the left has underfunded and demoralized the police force. Catastrophic learning loss and widespread mental health issues have been the result of unnecessary school closures, yet teachers’ unions and school bureaucracies focus on transgender ideology and critical race theory.

More subtly, Americans reject identity politics. For the most part, diversity still means people from all walks of life coming together in the American melting pot. The left has instead transformed diversity into separation, division and resentment. This is not how citizens see themselves or live. According to the 2020 US Census, most white people are living in mixed-race neighborhoods for the first time in modern history. In their daily lives, people from all walks of life get along and want to unite and believe in a common American Dream.

Given these factors, Republicans missed a big opportunity to win seats. Much has been said about the Trump effect. But in the end, too many candidates lacked the seriousness to show that they could solve problems and rebuild our social fabric.

So what should the right do in the next two years?

The first The step they need to take is to develop a concrete economic program that promotes growth and global prosperity. Getting the out of control spending that has driven inflation to its highest level in 40 years and the national debt to over 133% of the economy is a start. Self-imposed spending caps will immediately reduce deficits. It is essential to explain the consequences of astronomical debt to young Americans and their children, who now have an interest burden approaching $1 billion a year.

Second, also linked to the economy, is to adopt a sustainable energy policy that lowers gas prices. Harnessing domestic energy sources creates well-paying jobs, lowers energy costs, and reduces America’s reliance on bad actors. Republicans must unleash all energy sources available to the home while encouraging research and development to make energy cleaner. It doesn’t have to be one or the other.

A third area of ​​opportunity is to stop the overreach of the administrative state. It will empower people again, freeing them from unnecessary, often politically motivated rules and regulations that make it difficult to start a small business, run a school, or save and invest hard money. won. Also, it encourages problem solving at the grassroots level, where issues like education and crime need to be solved.

To finish, Republicans must lead on immigration. Securing the border, while ensuring an orderly and controlled process of entry into the country, can be done simultaneously. Moreover, a Latino reaches voting age every 30 seconds. The right must remind these young voters that their values ​​— faith, family and hard work — are reflected in the party that offers the best path to realizing the American dream.


Consider the big GOP victories on Tuesday — Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, both of whom have tackled immigration in a tough way while winning the trust and support of Hispanic voters.

Republicans must offer a positive vision and implement an agenda that the people want. If they do, the 2024 election could see a historic victory that resets the arc of America’s destiny in the 21st century.
