Pollster Indicates Republicans Are More Energized Than Democrats by Leaps and Bounds – Opinion

The Democrats have succeeded in tripping themselves up repeatedly — to the point where their chances of coming out of the midterms with some dignity intact are probably out of the question now.

The New York Post reports that JMC Analytics and Polling collected data throughout the primaries across various states and discovered that Republicans outnumbered Democrats when it came time to participating in the political process.

As of midday Wednesday, Republican voters made up 54.9% of the turnout in Idaho, Kentucky, North Carolina, Oregon and Pennsylvania, according to data compiled by JMC Analytics & Polling.

When all the 10 states holding primaries in this year’s election are considered, that figure increases to 60.9%.

“In every state where I’ve been measuring turnout changes relative to previous midterms, I’m seeing a clear advantage on the Republican side,” JMC Analytics founder John Couvillon told The Post, adding that the picture was the exact opposite in 2018, when Democrats took control of the House with a net gain of 41 seats.

This doesn’t mean Republicans can rest easy. The traditional Republican vote is more likely to be cast first, and they tend to get the highest numbers. Moreover, there are still 173 days until voters venture to the polls, but as Couvillon notes, “States that are swinging and are Republican are going to move far to the right.”

There is more evidence that a major red wave is coming to the United States. Turnout overall is up 13% compared with 2018, but has seen a 31% increase in Republican turnout, while Democrats actually have decreased by 6 percent. In some states, Democrat turnout actually increases, however, it is outpaced so much by Republicans that it disappears.

Oregon was the only state in which Republican voter turnout dropped between 2018 and the other 10 that has held their primaries. JMC recorded a 23% decline. Democratic voter turnout increased by 12% in North Carolina and 15% in Pennsylvania, but was dwarfed by Republican increases of 44% and 32%, respectively.

The Democratic turnout in Ohio’s former battleground state, Ohio, also declined 29% compared to four years earlier.

Did all of the Democrats just disappear? Do they feel so dissatisfied with Democrats, that they decided to not vote?

It could be, however, nothing can make party loyalists vote for the opposing side as much as an economic downturn. Democrats have witnessed one of the most severe in recent history. They are unable to believe that the people want to have anything to do with Democrats, no matter how much they blame others.

Moreover, polling from earlier in May shows that an overwhelming 94 percent of the country is concerned with the inflation that our country is experiencing under Democrat control, and what’s worse for Democrats, the majority of the country believes that it’s the Republicans that have the knowhow to fix it.

So it’s likely that many Democrats are showing up and voting, they’re just voting for Republicans.
