    You mean double or nothing, not double down. You double down from a position of strength, when you have 11 and the dealer shows 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6. The reason you double down is because when you have 11 with these cards showing the odds are dramatically in your favor, which is rare in a casino. You go double or nothing when you are desperate. And even if you win, you only get back to nothing, so you still have nothing. Saying that the Republican party has "doubled down" sounds nice, but the reality of it is they are not in anywhere near that strong of a position.
