I think what's getting lost in a lot of the debate surrounding why down-ballot Dems underperformed last year is the fact that ideology is largely irrelevant. The Democratic Party, partially because of decades of conservative media messaging, lacks credibility in many communities.
This is true in rural white communities as well as urban minority communities. There's only so much you can do to counter a media environment that tells voters that your politicians are corrupt elitest pedophiles. Advocating for local issues will be key to restoring trust.
Hatred for members of the other party doesn't develop overnight. It develops when you rarely interact with members of the other party and the only exposure you have is the caricature you observe in the media. This is true for Democrats and Republicans.

This is just one portion of the recording. Unbelievably chilling hearing this from the supposed leader of the free world.
Here’s the president repeating unfounded conspiracy theories re Fulton County ballots and Dominion voting machines.
Trump indicated he will give a presentation with all the nonsensical facts and figures supposedly proving election fraud at the rally tomorrow, which will definitely help Loeffler and Perdue.
