is "when they go low we go high" a winning strategy for democrats in 2022?
It seems to me this has been a general thought many, if perhaps not all, dems have kept in mind over the past few years. While the GOP continues in broad incivility against libs and leftists, we broadly seem to be remaining civil and policy focused in most of our messaging.
It seems to me the expectation that dems are polite is hurting us. Because any time we veer off that we now get hit with the "so much for the tolerant left" or "is this what you meant by 'we go high'" or similar things. Basically, the expectation that we will be polite and civil and policy focused may be a liability.
But at the same time, it also gives us a moral high ground for winning over centrists and on the fence voters and absolutely made an impact in the 2020 election, that even a gruff guy prone to off the cuff remarks like Biden seemed centered and sane compared to the raving loon on the right.
