New York Times: Election, Not Science, Driving Democrat Mandate Reversals

Blue state Democrats are starting to recognize the signs of the times when it comes to COVID restrictions. They are beginning to realize that the message must change. 

The political reality is starting to set in and dominos in each state are falling.

The ‘Science’ Of Blue States

Governor. Kathy Hocul announced that the state would drop its indoor mask mandate, one of the nation’s strictest, on Wednesday.

New York will follow the lead of several other Democrat-led states like Oregon, New Jersey, California. Officials in those states claim the decision to ease restrictions has come as the result of “months of public planning and focus groups.” 

Surprisingly, those focus groups began right after New Jersey Governor. Phil Murphy was the most narrowly elected to re-election this fall. The Murphy campaign thought the election would be a cakewalk, until it wasn’t. They didn’t realize how many New Jersey residents just wanted to return to normal life.

The fall election could prove to be a very difficult one for Democrats.

And while their pronouncements will be dripping with mentions of “the science changing,” the New York Times of all places revealed what is behind the stunning 180:

These decisions were driven by the increasing number of voters who are willing to accept the virus for what it is, as well as political calculations regarding the upcoming midterm elections which already put Democrats on alert.

The Dominos Were Born To Fall

States from Connecticut to Delaware, Oregon to California all announced plans for lifting COVID regulations immediately or within the next few days.

COVID restraints seem to relate to cold, hard political facts in 2022’s midterm election year.

CBS News reports that a recent Monmouth University poll showed that 70% of Americans said that the time has come to “accept that COVID is here to stay and we just need to get on with our lives.” This included 89% of Republicans, 71% of Independents, and 47% of Democrats.

It’s that huge majority of Independents that should be ringing alarm bells in every campaign office across the country.

Democrats Don’t Fool Anyone

Make no mistake, Democrats will tell you “the science has changed,” but what has really changed are the Democrats’ problems. As those sinking poll numbers come in, and inflation and crime spikes continue, Democrats are seeing yet another “never let a crisis go to waste” moment and will actively attempt to take credit for “ending” the pandemic. 

The presumptive successor Nancy Pelosi’s New York Rep. Hakeem Jefries is your best bet. 

Jeffries has fired the initial salvo – you can be certain that the next few months will be filled with claims that restrictions can be lifted because of the wonderful, dauntless leadership of Joe Biden. 

Yes, really.


These are the key points that have been discussed amongst the party.


Other problems could be on the horizon. There are rumours that an American trucker freedom rally is being planned and could be underway as early as Super Bowl Sunday. Justin Trudeau, Canada’s Prime Minister, has been facing serious political problems due to the Canadian trucker convoy. His own party members have turned against him and one even quit. 

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis recently gave a very clear explanation of the reason behind the Democrats sudden change of heart on draconian COVID restrictions, “The science didn’t change. The medical science didn’t change. The political science changed.”
