Expect a continuation of the shift to culture war battles from the right as they flounder about looking for a pitch to voters. The result is a floundering GOP as the right-wing party tries to draw a contrast with a president who isn't nearly as liberal as they try to make it seem. Despite the GOP's traditionally close relationship with big business, a right-wing nonprofit is targeting major US corporations over moving to the left on culture war issues. They're in service of setting off empty, staged rivalries aimed at drumming up attention to culture war battles rather than policy. For Republicans, culture war is the only viable path forward.

A Call for American Renewal’s roster of over 100 anti-Trump Republicans is a veritable “Who’s That?” of Republican politics. Most prominent Republicans have publicly aligned with Trump even as voter support erodes, and they're buckled in for the long haul. That creates the opening for more traditional Republicans to toy with forming a new party — but it's a slim one. That hasn't stopped disaffected Republicans from setting their sights on fence-sitting "Biden Republicans" — mostly suburban moderates who broke with Trump but remain aligned with GOP ideas like small government that have gone extinct in the post-Trump GOP. Though it's possible the group could restore some of the ground Trump lost to women, who went nearly 6-in-10 for Biden, Republicans have been losing women voters for years.

Republicans like Cheney could have been the ticket to show other disaffected Republicans and moderates that the party is more than just a "big tent" of Trump. The Republican Party (or what’s left of it) is becoming whiter, older, less educated and more male as it has continued to embrace Trumpism — particularly losing suburban woman and women with college degrees. What’s more, a vast majority of swing voters in recent focus groups saw removing Cheney from her leadership role as a huge mistake for House Republicans. Moderate Republican women are struggling to find a path forward in a male-dominated and aging GOP that continues to embrace Trump as its standard-bearer. Sadly, however, moderate Republican women are struggling to find a path forward in a male-dominated and aging GOP that continues to embrace Trump as its standard-bearer.
