Fox News Pundit Claims Election was ‘Searing Indictment’ of GOP, as Red Wave Failed to Materialize

As expected, it was a wild night. Election day for the 2022 Midterms saw mixed results for Republicans, with a strong indication the GOP will take control of the US House of Representatives, but will have to wait for a decision on who controls the US Senate until after a run-off election in Georgia between incumbent Raphael Warnock (D) and newcomer Herschel Walker (R) scheduled for December 6th. 

Likewise, a number of promising GOP races for Congress, Senate and for state Governor have failed to come to fruition on election day, although the marquee gubernatorial contest in Arizona between Katie Hobbs (D) and Kari Lake (R) is a dead heat and very much in play, with final vote tallies not due until Friday morning.

However, some Conservative voices are unhappy with the result this far, saying the much anticipated ‘Red Wave’ did not materialize on November 8th…

Conservative writer Marc Thiessen implored the Republican Party to engage in deep introspection after failing to deliver the promised “red wave.”

In a political environment unfavorable to Democrats, how could Republicans not decisively win nationwide, especially when they are generally on the favorable side of important issues like the economy and crime?

The result, according to Thiessen, is a “searing indictment” of the Republican Party.

“We had the worst inflation in four decades, the worst collapse in real wages in 40 years, the worst crime wave since the 1990s, the worst border crisis in U.S. history. We have Joe Biden, who is the least popular president since Harry Truman — since presidential polling happened — and there wasn’t a red wave,” the Fox News contributor said late Tuesday.

“That is a searing indictment of the Republican Party,” he continued. “That is a searing indictment of the message that we have been sending to the voters. They’ve looked at all of that, and looked at Republican alternative, and said no thanks.”

Given the disappointing results, Thiessen said the GOP “needs to do a really deep introspection look in the mirror right now” to understand the “absolute disaster” of an election cycle.

Although he did not mention former President Donald Trump by name, Thiessen said the Republican Party needs to look to Republicans like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine, and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp as the future of the GOP. Election Day seems to have proven Thiessen correct.

For instance, Kemp won reelection by 7.5%. But Republican Herschel Walker, whom Trump endorsed, trails incumbent Democrat Raphael Warnock by nearly 1%. In Ohio, DeWine won by more than 25%, but Trump-endorsed Republican J.D. Vance won by less than 7%. Watch:
