Everywhere you look on the Senate battleground map, there are stealth candidates fudging answers to the questions they can’t dodge outright.
Here’s a hypothetical scenario. Two years ago, a major political party lost its second national election in a row and realized one of the reasons was that it was rejected again by a bloc of voters that make up more than half of the electorate. Party leaders commissioned a huge report on what they could possibly do better, and came to the conclusion that they just need to talk differently but change no substance. They then held seminars, hired consultants, hosted training sessions and attempted to provide softer language for their candidates to communicate the exact same policies. Then they commissioned a poll to check in on their progress, and found they haven’t moved the needle one bit.
