The midterm elections are wrapping up, with several gubernatorial elections across the nation following suit.
In Georgia, GOP Gov. Brian Kemp is running for a second term in office against Democratic rival Stacey Abrams. Abrams challenged Kemp for the governor’s office back in 2018; yet, she lost the election.
This time around, Kemp looks set to defeat Abrams by an even wider margin than before. As polls show the Georgia governor carrying a double-digit lead over his opponent, Abrams is already crafting a narrative for her inevitable loss, per Breitbart News.
Already Denying the Outcome?
When 2018’s election didn’t go the way Abrams wanted, she said it was due to voter suppression. Now, she’s alleging that “misinformation” is stopping black men in Georgia from truly supporting her.
Abrams says this despite her own policies, which are a major reason why voters aren’t connecting with her. Defunding the police, supporting COVID-19 lockdowns, opposing election security measures, raising taxes, etc., are just a few examples of Abrams’ failed policies.

Throughout this election cycle, the Georgia Democrat has tried to demonize Kemp. Though it is not working. Throughout his time as governor, Kemp established a solid record that he is now running upon.
Abrams’ refusal to accept her likely defeat in Georgia’s gubernatorial race comes despite Democrats alleging that election denial is tantamount to attacking US democracy.
There is a very high chance that Abrams won’t fairly concede this election, as seen by her behavior thus far.
A Rejection of Leftism
In Georgia, most voters understand that backing Abrams means backing all of Joe Biden’s failed policies. Biden does not have good approval ratings in Georgia, not by any stretch of the imagination.
Abrams would love nothing more than to bring Biden-era reforms to Georgia. Kemp, on the other hand, wants to keep streets safe, further children’s education, support Georgians’ rights to self-defense, etc.
After Kemp defeats Abrams for a second time, it should send a clear message to the country at large. This message should convey that most people do not want what Democrats are selling.

Democrats can continue to double down on unsuccessful, failed policies if they want to. However, this is not going to win them elections.
Over the past two years alone, there has been enough damage done by Democrats to last a lifetime. Americans, not just those in Georgia, are saying no more and no thank you.
What do you think about Stacey Abrams claiming misinformation directed towards black men is why she’s losing her second race in a row for Georgia governor? Do you believe Abrams is going to concede this time around or continue blaming her loss on voter suppression and misinformation?
