They don’t itemize because they cant claim state and local taxes
Most don't itemize because most don't have more than 25k in deductions for married couples filing jointly. The SALT deduction primarily helps the wealthy in red states and upper middle-class to upper class in blue states where taxes are outrageous. The Democrats are in favor of the SALT deduction to protect these folks in blue states. They are willing to cut federal revenue at the expense of having these morons continue to vote for Democrats and their high taxes. They want the majority of the country to pick up the tab for the left's hair-brained ideas.
