I've shared my own concerns that people dispirited by the 2020 elections coupled with recent redistricting and ongoing inflation have created the deepest divide amongst Conservative + Republican voters that I've seen in my 25 plus year career in news/talk broadcasting.
Take a listen to the high volume of callers willing to 'switch parties... write in candidates names,' or 'just not vote' Some, like Mark from Hilton Head, who said:
"Voting for the lesser of two evils is gotten us where we are today."
Take a listen here + check out Thursday's planned Unity rally amongst GOP leaders calling for Mace/Arrington unity in SC01 race below:
