  • Senator Josh Hawley predicted that the overthrow of the Roe v. Wade case would help Republicans in the long run.

  • He argued that this decision would polarize the country in a way that would benefit Republicans in the Electoral College.

  • He also said that the alliance between the big corporations that support the Republican Party and the social conservatives is now “finished.”

Followed by 5-4 Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade and revoking constitutional rights to abortion in the United StatesJosh Hawley, a Republican Senator in Missouri, predicted a dramatic change in the country’s political structure.

“I really think this will be the moment of the watershed in American politics,” he said in a phone call with reporters on Friday. The “First Decision-Rho’s Decision in 1973” fundamentally reshaped American politics, which led to the rise of the Christian conservative movement and the formation of what became the Reagan Coalition in 1980. “

“I think another time of change in American politics is approaching us now,” he added.

Harley, a leading social conservative who is considered to have the president’s ambitions, said the ruling would further polarize the country as abortion laws change from state to state.

“As we say, as the state changes or adopts new legislation in response to this decision, I think we’ll see a large-scale consolidation already underway nationwide,” he said. Said. “I think it will probably redraw some demographic lines across the country and affect voting patterns across the country.”

Hurley said individuals may make decisions about where in the United States they choose to live under these laws and may move in the process.

“More and more red states, they will be more red, purple states will be red, blue states will be more blue,” he said.

As a result, Republicans have the potential to gain even greater advantage in the Electoral College, the country’s system for electing presidents. Under that system, the president is determined based on the votes of 538 voters assigned to each state based on their population.

Republicans already have an advantage under this system, and Donald Trump was elected president in 2016, even though he lost millions of votes to Hillary Clinton in a popularity poll.

“As a result, I will look for Republicans to expand their power in the Electoral College,” he said. “And that’s very good news for us who want to see the Republican president elected and see the conservative Supreme Court.”

Holy was the first Republican senator to announce at a joint parliamentary meeting on January 6, 2021 that he would oppose the approval of the election vote from Pennsylvania.

“The alliance is over”

Hurley not only predicted the party’s luck, but also aimed at “corporate,” “neoliberal,” and “globalists” within the Republican Party.

“For years on the conservative side of the ledger, social conservatives have been told that they need to form an alliance with neoliberal entrepreneurs in order to be elected,” he said. Told. “I think the alliance is over today. There is no reason for social conservatives, frankly, to agree with the less-supported corporate agenda in the country.”

He added that the so-called entrepreneurial agenda was “for many years a free-rider of the Republican coalition.”

“I think the skepticism we see in big companies, multinationals, and all the coalitions that come with it, will become more pronounced as we move forward,” he said. “And I’m looking forward to it.”

Hurley has recently been counted in the Republican “populist” category. Declares opposition to the $ 40 billion aid package to Ukraine He believes that the United States needs more “nationalist” foreign policy.
