Investing in Democratic Races

Blue circle with a D in it, denoting the Democratic Party of the US

I’ve you’ve ever done any type of investing, the message from those in the know is, “Invest wisely. Don’t let emotion into it and you’ll do fine.”  So why don’t we do the same thing with investing in candidates for office?  Sure, we all wanted to see McConnell (R-KY) defeated in 2020, and Amy McGrath raised $88,000,000 trying to defeat him (not including the hundreds of millions poured into the race by PACs).  And yet McConnell soundly trounced McGrath 57.8% to 38.2%. Sure, we want to get rid of Marjorie Taylor Greene and her kindergartenesque antics.  But her district, GA-14, is overwhelmingly Republican.  And barring her coming out with some opinion so heinous that even her district wants to get rid of her, she will easily trounce whatever competitor comes her way.  Maybe not 74.7% to 25.3% like her 2020 election, but probably not that far off.

Why do we insist on investing in candidates with no hope of winning?  Because we are investing with our hearts and not our heads.
