The Spin

Right narrative

Soros is doubling down on his efforts to help Democrats stay in power despite their low approval ratings and the dismal failures of Soros-backed incumbents whose policies have left America's cities beseiged by crime.

Left narrative

Americans are facing a sustained assault on democratic institutions and the rule of law, and Soros is investing in the people and party that have demonstrated a desire to protect them.
