Since Biden won by improving in the suburbs, are Republicans going to return to their neoconservative pre-Trump platform?

Historically, Biden is closer to a Bush Republican than Trump is and that’s how he attracted Sun Belt moderates. The McCain types. I don’t see Kamala doing that in 2024 since she’s too radical.

Nebraska’s 2nd district voted for Biden AND Rep. Don Bacon because his opponent was a socialist like Sanders. Same with Houston’s northern suburbs where the Presidential vote there tied but Dan Crenshaw got re-elected by 14%.

    The election results tend to indicate that while people in general worry about how far left the DNC platform has become they just don't like Trump's personality. Trump's actual agenda was to the left of Biden's record in many respects (criminal justice reform), but he's just so off-putting as a human being that voters elected more conservative members to Congress but gave Trump himself the boot. But if you look at Biden's Cabinet and staff picks he seems to be trying to bring back the Obama administration...the same set up that lead to likes of Trump in the first place. It's like we never learn.

    No.  Trump was supported by working people who the left clearly rejected as being selfish winers for wanting to have a decent job while they gave them all away to foreigners.  Is that why you vote for the destruction of your own life and living standards?  Trump was not a politician. He was not beholding in any way to other countries or groups.   That is why the left saw fit to destroy him no matter what it took.  They could not control him.  If you can't see that, you have missed a very large movement within your own country.

    Biden didn't win.  Hard to believe that a guy who couldn't fill a driveway with admirers got 80 million legitimate votes.  Total Fraud.
