The Republican Party’s future is something being heavily discussed in conservative circles. With the Democrats controlling the White House and Congress, Republicans are working to make a comeback and win elections in 2022.
Understanding the party’s future and the right methods to employ going forward are essential elements of winning elections and making a comeback. Many Republicans, therefore, are hard at work to energize the base, employ the necessary strategies, and get to work.
Yesterday, Fox News host Steve Hilton discussed his interpretation of the GOP’s future; according to Breitbart News, this interpretation asserts that “positive populism” is ultimately the future of the Republican Party.
Positive Populism in the Republican Party
Yesterday, Hilton asserted that the future of the GOP involves a fighting spirit and the right policies that will appeal to the nation. The Fox News host explained that while Democrats like Biden and Harris care more about impressions than impacts, GOP policies suit Americans of all backgrounds and situations.
Hilton then stated that issues like school choice, freedom of speech, wage growth, poverty decreases, etc., are areas where Republicans can win. He then urged the GOP to remember that policies which benefit workers, communities, families, and the nation at large will ultimately be the winning ticket.

Finally, Hilton informed that building on ideas from Trump will only allow the GOP to grow. A huge part of this growth will mean extending outreach efforts to various communities and ultimately increasing the GOP coalition.
The 2022 Test
Whether the GOP takes Steve Hilton’s advice remains to be seen. Either way, though, next year’s midterm elections are the test. Furthermore, these midterms will determine the future of the nation, balance in the federal government, etc.
A series of conservative groups are mapping out gameplans for winning elections. In the House races, Republicans are looking at the necessary districts to take back the House majority. Furthermore, Biden’s policies, such as ending Keystone Pipeline and refusing to reopen schools, will also be used against Democrats.
"you can't reform the federal government you have to reduce it. let's honor the 10th. close down everything except Defense, Treasury, State and Justice. sell the buildings, fire the bureaucrats… more power to the states, more power to communities, above all: power to people" https://t.co/4HnxSxh8Ws

Republicans continue to be the fighters for school choice and reopening schools. However, Democrats are dragging their feet on this issue since the leftist teachers’ unions are a sizable percentage of their donors.
