Chaos erupted at last night’s debate after Republican presidential candidates were asked if they would calm younger voters’ concerns that the party doesn’t care about climate change. A chorus of boos rained down on candidate Vivek Ramaswamy when he claimed the ‘climate change agenda’ was a hoax and doubled-down on the GOP’s ‘drill, frack, burn coal rhetoric. Voters weren’t buying it, with independent voters’ attitudes plummeting across the board, but the consensus seems to be that the combative Ramaswamy carried the night. What wasn’t said might be even more interesting. No one on the stage mentioned ESG and there was only one mention of wokeness near the end of the debate. Republican politicians may be finally waking up to the reality that it’s a losing issue, even with their own base.
