It's like they only know one play.

The "Why won't you stupid cousin-humping rednecks vote for us?" campaign pitch has been blowing up in Democrats' faces on the reg for something like two decades now, so why should they change?
That certainly sums up the overriding priority of working class voters: a government that works on behalf of the people. No amount of talk about abortion, gun control and January 6th is likely to convince them that Democrats are providing that when their “lived experience”, as it were, is quite different.
With the economy a shambles, the GOP only has to point at the mess to pin it on the Dems; they don't actually need to have any plans to fix it.

As a bonus, because people automatically relate the state of the economy to the dude sitting in the Oval Office, as if there were a knob to control it on the Resolute desk or something, if the GOP does take one or both chambers of Congress in the midterms, as seems likely, they don't even have to do anything to fix it. In fact, they could play debt ceiling games to wreck it further and all it would do is help sink whoever the Dems run in '24.

The worse, the better!
