A coalition of progressive groups is taking on the Republican Party, arguing that the GOP has been stealing the 2018 midterm elections from Democrats.
Green hair dye, which has been blamed for some of the party’s worst election results, is now being touted as a safe and effective way to remove a toxic and misleading image from voters.
The group, MoveOn, is calling for the use of green hair dyes in the midterm elections in the wake of the recent allegations of misconduct in the Republican National Committee.
“Green hair dye has been proven to remove the negative perception of a political candidate, and it has the power to change the election, too,” said MoveOn national political director Adam Green.
“The American people need to see the truth, and that is the only way they will be able to hold those who hold power accountable.”
Democrats are expected to take back the House and Senate in the 2018 elections after holding onto two of their three House seats in the 2016 election.
But while the party has made strides in winning back the Senate, the majority of Americans remain dissatisfied with the Republican agenda, according to a Washington Post/ABC News poll released Tuesday.
About half of Americans said they have a favorable opinion of the Republican president, with 44 percent holding an unfavorable view, and the party holds just a narrow edge over Democrats on who they think will be better to lead the country.
The poll also found that more than half of Democrats said the GOP was responsible for a “sad state of affairs” in the country, while just under a third said the party was not.
A majority of Republicans, however, say Democrats are responsible for the nation’s problems, with more than three-quarters saying they think Democrats have been responsible for them.
In a statement, MoveNow said, “It’s important that the American people understand that the Republican party has no intention of changing the way they represent their voters.
The GOP has no plans to change its platform and will continue to oppose progressive reforms that will address economic and social injustice.”
Green Hair Dyes are a proven and safe way to help change voters’ perception of the GOP,” the group said.
Democrats have pointed to the fact that Republicans lost the House last year in the midterms despite a strong turnout by Democratic voters, which resulted in a higher-than-expected turnout for the midterm election.
