Voters Are Done With COVID-19 and Pandemic-Powered Officials

Over the past year, politicians have enjoyed a record of success. They are enjoying extraordinary power and the support of those who fear viral infections. Democrats in particular championed severe restrictions to life, and were often praised for this. Terry McAuliffe and Phil Murphy had every right to anticipate that voters would support similar intervention in other areas going into the election. However, voters have grown tired of the panic caused by pandemics, and they want a government that pays more attention to public concerns and is traditional in its approach to managing their affairs.

Voters on Tuesday rejected the Democratic Party from Virginia’s Tidewater to Long Island and the Philadelphia suburbs. This was a clear repudiation that went beyond what even its most pessimistic strategists had expected. RecognizedA Washington Post post-mortem.

Murphy won a reelection bout that was meant to have been in the bag, but he just barely.

Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe was not in office during the epidemic, but he stressed active government intervention to combat the virus.

Gallup reported that “Last Year marked only the 2nd time in the 29-year Gallup trend that at least 50% of Americans supported an active government role on this item.” Americans were supportive of activist government until the September 11 attacks. After that, Americans reverted to their preference for lower taxes and fewer government services. This is happening again.

McAuliffe, Murphy and many other hopefuls for political office are struggling in a country losing its tolerance of imperious officials. The voters don’t seem to be united on what they want and this is not obvious.
