i understand the theory. it's plausible. but congressmen have access to private, more accurate polling that they spend a ton of money on. and that informs them of how to frame their point of view on talking head shows. sure, those polls could be wrong too. but i don't know...King Colby on 5AF thinks the polls are wrong, but US Senators who decipher this data for a living think they're right.That wasn't the question. You answered who you think is more likely to be surveyed.2 - because that’s today’s GOP. Extra characters needed. Apologies.Who is more likely to respond to that survey:Every poll Ive seen on this is 50-70% over the last 5 months. At some poInt, sample size isn’t gonna play anymore.
1. A normal person
2. A whacko MAGA disciple with a bone to pick
One character answer, 1 or 2.
The question is... between 1 and 2, who is more likely to answer the survey and not hang up the phone.
i think guys like Hawley and Cruz have already gone through the reps that you're going through, and have determined that no - this conspiracy theory is a real thing and they need to play along to stay in good favor with the voting majority. if it was, say, 25% of GOP were conspiracy-riddled trumpers, then congress would still be sucking up to CEOs and giving reasonably sane TV interviews.
