Republicans abandoned policy and are now all about fear

The Republican Party has shifted away from policy in recent years and toward fear-based politics. Some notable examples include prominent Republicans pushing false claims about election fraud, promoting extremist social views such as anti-transgender legislation, and focusing on cancel culture and perceived threats to free speech. The reason for this shift is that Republicans are losing most policy battles when it comes to public opinion. For instance, a majority of Americans support universal background checks for any gun purchase, raising the minimum wage, and addressing climate change. Instead of addressing these issues, Republicans have focused on making voters afraid and angry, particularly around immigration, which they claim is a threat to jobs and social welfare programs. The rhetoric of the modern Republican Party is based on false premises and stereotypes, such as the idea that lazy brown people are taking jobs and leeching off social welfare programs. The Republican Party's shift away from policy is intentional and a strategic way to get votes despite their ideas being unpopular.
