Rove: Hostility as powerful as enthusiasm…

In today’s WSJ, Karl Rove opined that in the Presidential election:

Hostility proved as powerful as enthusiasm in motivating voters

Trump supporters said their vote was more for Mr. Trump than against Mr. Biden while Mr. Biden’s supporters said their vote was more against the incumbent than for the challenger.

We said that weeks ago , citing our “principle” that:

Hate is a much stronger emotion than love … and that Trump-haters would overwhelm Trump-lovers (and Trump-tolerators).

==============

Rove also pointed out that:

Mr. Biden won decisively (in the Electoral College), but enough battleground states were close that it could easily have gone the other way.

The combined margin in Arizona, Georgia and Wisconsin was 42,918 votes.

The election would have been a 269-269 tie if those states were in Mr. Trump’s column.

Imagine the circus if that has occurred.
