Which racial and gender politics zealots are those?  Be specific about which senators or house members you’re talking about.

All of 'the squad' along with their supporters, and innumerable municipal and state democrats throughout the country. And the problem is even those who aren't big supporters won't speak against it, much as so many Republicans might disapprove of Trump but don't dare say a word against him.

According to the NYT the Republicans have already created enough new safe seats through gerrymandering to take back to the House next year even without any additional vote gains. They'll likely take the Senate too. And there is a strong move there among Republicans for a constitutional convention to change the US constitution to weaken federal powers and perhaps even allow the states to override supreme court rulings. They've already had almost enough states sign onto it. Republicans and their billionaire backers have spent a fortune on state contests while the Democrats yawned, and they're paying the price.
