Why Aren’t Republicans Campaigning On Law And Order?

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 85% of Likely U.S. voters are at least somewhat concerned about inflation, including 57% who are Very Concerned. That’s almost unchanged since May.

And we hear Republicans out on the campaign trail talking about inflation and how to cure it regularly.


However, the second issue topping Rasmussen’s latest survey – crime and law and order – doesn’t seem to get nearly as much attention.


Even though it tops inflation as a voter concern.


Tucker Carlson recently did a segment explaining why voters are so concerned about law and order and it bears out what Rasmussen Reports found in their survey.



Some of the clips Tucker showed included:


CHICAGO, IL: Some high-end stores along the Gold Coast have hired security guards to usher in customers one at a time because of videos like this where a handful of criminals come in at a time. In this case, the theft ring made off with over $100,000 worth of Louis Vuitton items.


SEATTLE, WA: This may be the most brazen shoplift you'll ever see. After singling out a $600, 70-inch TV, police say... the man in blue, puts the TV on a shopping cart and starts to wheel it through Seattle's downtown target. Court documents say he's stolen from this target 21 times before.


SAN FRANCISCO: Suspects running to the streets of San Francisco. Arms full of loot. A trio of thieves violently smashing and then grabbing $20,000 worth of watches.


BELLEVUE, WA: Snatch and run. Within seconds, thieves swiped $93,000 worth of merchandise from Louis Vuitton in Bellevue.


SEATTLE, WA: Customer stepped outside and then returns with a pistol jabbing at the employee and demanding all the bills from the register. The gunman takes the cash and runs out. Police think he's done it before.


This stuff is all over the news and the internet, no wonder eighty-six percent (86%) of voters in Rasmussen’s latest survey are at least somewhat concerned about violent crime, including 61% who are Very Concerned.


Showing how out of touch they are with the man (and woman) on the street, the top two issues that Democrats are Very Concerned about are abortion rights and climate change, but those are the issues that both Republicans and unaffiliated voters are least concerned about.


Most importantly, those concerns about inflation and crime cut across demographic lines in a way that should favor Republicans.


Black voters are more likely to be Very Concerned about preventing cheating in elections (65%) or violent crime (61%) than about either abortion rights (43%) or climate change (39%).


Voters under 40 are most likely to be concerned about climate change. However, even among under-40 voters, more are concerned about inflation (86%) and violent crime (83%) than about climate change (73%).


Fifty-four percent (54%) of voters with annual incomes above $200,000 are Very Concerned about climate change, but that opinion is shared by only 36% of voters with incomes between $30,000 and $50,000.


Among those who Strongly Disapprove of Biden’s performance, only nine percent (9%) are Very Concerned about climate change and just 27% are Very Concerned about abortion rights.


The 2022 midterm elections are now less than three months away, and according to Rasmussen’s latest survey, Republicans have a five-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress. But that lead can shrink to nothing if Republicans don’t start hitting the campaign trail with a message that reflects the concerns of voters.

Where were Republicans during those riots in 2020 arising from drug addict Floyd's death? Law and order? Not sure how much either party gives a damn regarding this. The GOP did virtually nothing to support President Trump before, during, and after the corrupt 2020 election--and are doing little to safeguard the integrity of future elections.

And where were the Republican when hundreds of far right pink monkeys stormed the Capitol building in their attempt to undermine democracy? Oh, that's right, they ran away like the cowards they are. And when it came time to impeach Trump for inciting a riot, most of the GOP ran away again, shirking their oath to the Constitution and the country. Shameful.

I wouldn't want Mr. Rasley's job. There is so much absolute nonsense written below as to make you wonder if these are real people or just leftist bots.

The problem(s) with the republican party is the pompous Mitch McConnell who is an anachronistic hindrance to genuine conservative values. He simply capitulates to the democrats while giving the feigned impression of representing conservative values. Mitch needs to be removed.

"Why aren't Republicans campaigning on law and order?"


Because with the majority of them being RINO criminals like the Democrats, they know that they will wind up in jail while the Democrats will continue to get away with murder. So, they keep their mouths shut and their heads down because they don't want any trouble.


The key to saving the country from a Marxist future lies in reforming or replacing the Republican Party. The Democrats and their constituency are perfectly happy with things disintegrating the way they are now. It's up to us, the conservative voters, to replace enough of the RINOs with true conservatives that we can then affect true political reform. Otherwise, we're done.

In far right "conservative" land, upholding the Constitution and defending rule of law makes you a criminal.

So-called "climate change is nothing but a HOAX, pushed by the communist scumbags to CONTROL the minds and the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ of the people. "green energy" is also A FARCE. The environment is being DESTROYED by the HUGE "fossil fuel powered" earth movers, that are digging up of the "necessary" minerals to MAKE these " EV batteries"while still relying on FOSSIL FUELS to CHARGE these EV batteries. (Natural gas,.COAL Diesel fuel) "fossil fuels" are also used in the manufacture and the PARTS of these EV's.... "Wind turbine" blades that have gone past their useful lives are filling landfills. (and also kill wildlife as they spin, as well as are UGLY things to look at dotting the landscape.. "Solar panel farms" …
