Republicans Blindsided That People Who Vote Believe in Democracy

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—As they conduct a postmortem on the midterm elections, top Republicans have disclosed that they were “totally blindsided” that people who vote tend to believe in democracy.

According to Party officials, Republican strategists have been flabbergasted by exit polls indicating that voters who had just cast their ballots wanted those votes to be counted.

“In the run-up to Election Day, we believed that our message about ignoring the will of the people would strongly appeal to people,” Harland Dorrinson, a prominent G.O.P. strategist, said. “What we found instead was that people who participated in democracy were inclined to favor democracy. It’s a humbling reminder of just how unpredictable politics can be.”

Fearing that voters’ preference for voting could be more than a passing fad, Republicans have already started rethinking their 2024 strategy, Dorrinson said.

“We’re going to have to make it clear that we Republicans believe in elections, whether we do or not,” he said.
