The Democratic Party is losing touch with the American people.
They thought identity politics would give them the governorship in this liberal stronghold.
But this transgender candidate’s failure just exposed a fatal flaw in the Democrats’ playbook.
Transgender socialist Christine Hallquist ran for Governor of Vermont.
The Democratic Party thought he was the ticket to taking back liberal Vermont from GOP incumbent Phil Scott.
But they couldn’t have been more wrong.
Christine Hallquist bombed at the ballot box, losing to Phil Scott by a whopping 15% margin.
This was almost double the lead that Phil Scott had over the last democratic candidate in 2016.
Vermont showed that it takes more than identity politics to be a viable political candidate.
And, as we previously reported, Christine Hellquist just wasn’t up to snuff.
Burlington Free Press Reports:
Vermonters launched Gov. Phil Scott into a second term Tuesday, demonstrating again the state’s loyalty to incumbents.
The election shows that Scott’s brand of Republican leadership continues to succeed in a state dominated by Democratic politics.
The Democratic Party thought they could push transgenderism on the people of Vermont thinking they wouldn’t push back.
But Democrats’ reliance on identity politics to elect the nations’ first transgender governor fell flat on its face as Vermont voters rejected it outright.
They couldn’t even succeed in a state that has elected Bernie Sanders over a dozen times from Mayor to U.S. Senator.
