President Donald Trump has ushered in a new age of politics, one that’s not been seen since Ronald Reagan’s day, that supporters see as putting people over pols, citizens over Capitol Hill.
And boy, are the RINOs on edge about that. So oust ‘em, some say.
The trouble is it’s easier said than done. Here’s why. And more importantly, here’s how to do it.
“Few things in life are more predictable than the chances of an incumbent member of the U.S. House of Representatives winning reelection,” the Center for Responsive Politics wrote, in its OpenSecrets.org website. “With wide name recognition, and usually an insurmountable advantage in campaign cash, House incumbents typically have little trouble holding onto their seats.”
In 2010, there was a bit of a shakeup, and only about 85 percent of House incumbents facing reelection actually kept their seats. And that low — because that’s what that 85 percent reelection success rate represents, a 50-year low — hadn’t been seen since 1970. Typically, according to CRP’s chart, House members retain their seats for at least one election cycle upwards of 90 percent of the time.
